    Ok, another question.
    Type of oil to fill in steering box? I have heard two options. 140w oil or some special grease. Seems to be two opinions on this subject, each says this is the best over the other.
    I'll ask you guys your thoughts here.

    Everything you need in the Tech Section Scott! Definitely a subject that comes up all the time. Never use 140 AXLE gear oil no matter what you read or hear. The original specification was for 140 weight gear oil but not the kind for your axle. The military spec that relates to the gear oil is different than axle lube. Gear oil is not all the same by a long shot! Steering gear lube like knuckle lube, needs to have a very thick constancy. It is 140 weight but not the same as an Axle lube 140 weight. It is often refereed to as a "00" grade. It needs to be the consistency of jelly at room temperature.
