Cornhead grease question
 

I am going to try Cornhead grease in my steering box, having failed to get it to stop leaking. But it occurs to me that it may not keep the sector gear bushings lubed. Does anyone have long-term, long mileage experience using the grease?

Lots of folks use it in steering box. Read about it here. High praises.

It seems like the exhaust manifold would be close enough to add enough heat to help liquify it enough to seep lube into those bushings.

I also had seepage from my '41 steering box. I use Cornhead grease now and am very pleased. no leak or seepage at all.

I have it in the 37 Hudson box in my deuce pu. No leaks and works in all kinds of weather. I just got done putting it in 54 center pivot irrigation gear boxes. Pivot dealer says it virtually eliminates gear box failure plus doesn't leak.
