Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Best oil or something modern that will last long when oiling front axle

Best thing to put in the oil cups on the front axle. All new but regular oil drips through eventually I get it to keep it slick but is there a better oil solution. Some said chain saw bar oil... just needs some opinions I really don't want to be wiping oil up if I don't have to. Thanks in advance Tim

If you can find it, summer grade chainsaw oil is sort of close to the consistency of honey and works great. If not, 250 wt. or 600 wt rear end oil works pretty well.

I use the 600W or SAE 250 I use in the rearend with great success. Have driven many miles (1000s) and minimum wear in my king pins.

I've been using regular motor oil for over 50+ years. Never a problem.

I was told to use bar and chain oil in my oilers. Seems to work great.

I pump grease into my shackle bushings using a rubber-tipped grease needle:

I use chain saw bar oil in my kingpins because I worry that grease might make it all the way down the pin from the top. :-)

I use leftover 600W from my rear end rebuild. When I filled the differential I still had about an oil can's volume left in the bottle. Works great, except when it's pretty cold it's hard to pump out of the oil can.

Guys are right about the chain oil however since you claim to have some 600 wt. layin' around go with that.
