Much less expensive, but basically the same litium-based pourable grease product: Super S Cotton picker Spindle Grease "00"
Available at Tractor Supply. SKU number 105682899
It's in a squeeze bottle, so much easier to shoot into that small fill-hole in your Ross steering box

Am interested why you suggest this instead of Penrite. Reason I ask is eventually I will need something for my 37 Beverly steering box after re seal or rebuild. But thanks for this information too.

Many times less expensive. ($5 for a full quart!) I compared both brands, and they are the same in appearance and viscosity. Also, having the squeeze bottle is super helpful: no need to heat up the grease before-hand.

Thank you for the explanation. I may try this suggestion mostly because of the squeeze bottle idea.

John, I posted that question out on AACA look in general discussion.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
