Maybe a dumb question, but what exactly is "00" grease? What do the "00"s mean anyway?.
i have absolutely no idea!! maybe it has something to do with the weight or viscosity?
snapper used 00 grease in their rear engine mowers trans. it was green came in a 1 quart squeeze bottle. it looked like grease and oil mixed together. they still may sell it
Texaco used to call it Hypoid grease, we used it in the lower units of direct drive small horsepower OMC outboards. It was almost black in colorm and like a 200 weight gear grease if it is the same stuff.
It's not as thick as the grease you use in a grease gun, it will actually flow a little when warmed up. It can be used in gear cases and chain drive system that create lots of heat and pressures. We have some large tillers that use it in the lower gear trough. We use Texaco Multifax HD "00". It is measured by weight not volume.
