Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: Exactly what product should be used to lube the front steering knuckes? I know the book says universal joint lubricate but if someone could name a product or what to look for that would be helpful. Thanks!

Someone on the boards cam up with "knuckle pudding" a while back. It's a mixture of grease and gear oil. Try doing a search for it.
I plan on ordering 5 gallons of 600 wt steam cylinder oil to use in the knuckles on my 2A. It has a consistency between grease and gear oil and has excellent water repellant capabilities. So it should work pretty well. The Model A uses something similar in its differential and gearbox.
