Does it (really) matter if bolts like the spindle bolt for example gets grease when fitted, then oiled over time once it is in place?
It seems like grease would work better or stay longer. I wasn't sure if oil grease combo would gunk up.
I always do that.
Chain saw bar oil is your friend, it pours like honey.
Been using plain motor oil forever, just like Ford says to.
Grease can dry out and prevent oil from getting where it needs to be.
Robert, the spindle bolts are made so that oil will penetrate to the bottom, grease won't be able to do that. Any oil will work, I use either Lucas or bar and chain oil whichever I have on hand. KGB
Like Mr. Moore, I was taught to use chainsaw bar oil in the oilers. It seems to work well for me.
I think grease would be better for a while but maybe oiling often would flush out the grit to avoid wear?
I have chain saw bar & chain oil in the Ford oil can on my workbench. I use it everywhere Ford says to apply oil. It's good stuff -- better than motor oil for chassis oiling.
