NLGI 0 grease will flow, but it requires a higher temperature to do so. People use the JD corn grease for the Model A u-joint.

NLGI 00 grease will flow (barely) at room temperature. This makes it a good fit for the steering box. You can use the 0 grease in the steering box also, but its hard to get it in there, and to know when its filled.
