  • Hey, I have an old,old finishing mower that I can't find parts for, It still works great but the lower seal has started leaking and I can't find a replacement. A while back there was a discussion about using some kind of grease in a gearbox , Any idea's on which grease to use? Thanks

  • NGLI 00 Better known as John Deere Corn Head grease.
    Mix that 50/50 in a zip lock bag with 90W.
    Cut corner off bag, squeeze into opening.

    Or be lazy like me, Grab the grease gun and shoot in about 100 pumps of red #2 EP.
    that was after I filled in and saw it leaking out. I figure next time around I might just check the oil level and fill it up with straight 90.
