able to put the grease in it tomorrow.
I rang the local oil people, spoke to one of their tech guys expecting
that he could tell me straight away what their equivalent was so that
I could collect some tomorrow, but he hasn't rung back yet.....
The proper stuff is apparently Sun Oil EP-741 'grease' - though it
might not be technically a grease?
Any suggestions for another maker's equivalent? As the old gears had
completely worn out, I want to put somewhere near the right stuff in
so the same doesn't happen again too soon.
Furter down the same head, the QC30 spindle nut is bu**ered, or at
least its innards are. It looks like the sort of thing which could
cost anything from 20 quid to 200 to buy new. If the former, I'll
happily just buy a new one. Anywhere near the latter, I'll be
scratching round for a cheapy/secondhand replacement. Any pointers
will be welcome (I'll ask BP tomorrow for the awful truth )
