I guess another trip to a different TS will be soon. I might try the Cotton Pickers if no luck at the next 1. Thanks for all the responses.

Any grease at " 0 " grade or above will work just fine. "00" will flow back on itself quicker then " 0 " will, but both will do the same job. 00 might make its way out the seals quicker, but even then it will take some time.

Should this be put in a new steering box?


Old enough to know better, too young to resist.

Should this-what be put into a new/rebuilt steering box?

00 as specified, or, 0?

My guess is that both would be OK, but, I’d used 00.

Big PITA to find this stuff. Called the local FLAPS; they don't have it. There are no Deere dealers locally. Online stores don't have it or they want an arm and a leg (I'm not spending $50 for a pint of grease).

Finally success...
The local Kubota dealer had it. Guy on the phone told me to bring an empty container and they will get me some "ep00". $10 bought me 750 ml.

1 quart for $18

don't know if it's any good or not, but there seems to be many options for 00 grease on amazon, which means they should be available cheaper online directly from respective sources.
hope that helps
