Started doing what was planned to be a little job, and it is rapidly turning into a front end rebuild...

I'm planning to strip and service an X9 Superwinch (20 years old, never serviced) and it says to use 90-15020 Superwinch grease.

What is the standard equivalent geeas I can get away with using? LM? Moly? Or something else special?

Thanks in advance.

Any decent moly grease will do. Don't over pack it though.

Thanks John,

I'll pop to the motor factor to get a new tin of moly tomorrow.

Much obliged. Smile

To be fair, all of the bolts I've needed to remove (so far) have undone with a scoosh of WD40 and a long breaker bar...

Must be the copper slip I religiously use Wink

...but yes you're right there is no such thing as a simple job...


...it's everything else you find on the way Wink Wink

I've always thought copper grease must have been invented very recently, because none of my previous owners ever seem to have heard of it Mad
