: : 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!
: This comes up now and then on the baord. Book and purests use 90wt gear oil.-hint--
Try an oil and lube distributor in the phonebook. Some of the brands are Texaco Meropa, and Shell Valvata. I tried a Googling "steam cylinder oil". The smallest amount I found that I could order was a 5 gallon pail at about $40 dollars. Since the knuckles don't take that much that should do for at least 5 years.
