    Question Drive Shaft Grease

    The manual says to "Apply molybdenum disulfide grease" for the drive shaft to intermediate bearing. Would Green Grease be ok for a substitute? It is a lithium based grease. Here is there product detail:


    Waterproof Green Grease is a professional grade, high performance synthetic polymer grease developed for mining, manufacturing, marine and off-road applications. Recommended for cars, trucks, boats, trailers, ATV's, motorcycles, mowers, farm equipment and implements - any application up to 500 degrees fahrenheit.

    Ideal for general chassis lubrication, including U-joints, tie-rod ends, upper and lower A-arms, CV-type driveshaft's, ball/roller and sealed -for-life bearings. Handy for hinges, pool equipment, seals, gaskets, O-rings and more. Used in extreme environments for over 25 years, Green Grease lasts longer than ordinary grease, provides superior parts and equipment protection, and is compatible with lithium and petroleum-based greases.

    Exceptional operating temperature range meets or exceeds most major manufactures performance requirements. Tenacious synthetic polymers resist high impact, shock loads, wash-out and centrifugal separation. Our special Ep compounding helps prevent wear under heavy-duty conditions. The waterproof technology in green grease acts as a rust preventative and protects bearings, seals and open gears. Waterproof technology repels fresh and saltwater.


    Is this better than moly because of it's waterproof properties?

    I have used it in the past. When I pulled the drive shaft out after 5 hours the grease was black. I do not know if this was from the prior grease or the Green Grease breaking down.
