It's your choice on what you have available. I use Rotella HD red or yellow cause I get it $3 a tube. Some folks like Lucas. Some like original GAA.What type of grease should I use to pack wheel bearing on my m923 ?
Leave the seals out and pack the empty space with grease.For those that have repacked their hubs, front and rear. How much grease, ball park, does each hub take? With ctis disabled (not working at control unit) and lines going into the axles capped and plugged, should i get a hub seal kit w/o ctis or should i even replace the seals?
Yes. You do not need the seals for the CTIS if it is not operational. Sometimes the kits are nearly the same price for A1 and A2s. Or I find one of the other cheaper. It just depends on what I run across as to what I use. So leave them out regardless of what kit you get.
HMMM, But, Someone once told me "that gearbox is absolutely K....d", it will last about two weeks, knocking growling jumping out of second gear (1943 Ford jeep).Any good grease but moly. It turns to mush when mixed with even a tiny bit of gear oil, and I guarantee oil will leak a bit.
Check out royco 22cf or mobile 28. it is not the same mil-prf, but comes close to the requirements of the gaa grease. The down side to royco is its awful smell.This specification requires a grease that is capable of lubrication and corrosion protection over an extremely wide range of temperatures; there is no currently available non-government standard which fulfills the requirements of this specification.
