    Time to give the Ferris it's first grease over....
    I have endless tubes of "automotive" and "Marine" grease laying around.

    These good enough ? Marine grease maybe better with the water factor maybe ?
    Hate to buy more uneeded if I can use the supply I have.

    Two grease rules to remember

    1.Any decent grease will do what it is supposed to do IF it's where it needs to be.

    2.No grease will lube a thing while still in a tube.

    I get about one magic lube salesman a month, the lore is the same from all of them, dont fall prey to the magic lubricant syndrom, there isn't any.

    Use what you have at the shop.
