    Out of grease and found a tube of white Lithium grease...Is it OK for the grease points on a Metro?
    Thought I should ask first....

    khutch,

    The simple answer is maybe. The grease itself is probably fine. The only real issue may be that it might not be compatible with the grease that is already in the lubrication point. When greases are not compatible they can liquify, gell probably several other not so good things. On a Metro I don't thing I would worry about it unless it's old enough that it has greaseable spindles. If it does have greaseable spindles I'd probably only use a high speed synthetic.

    Thanks
