The viscosity of the red stuff is fine for a while, but as
you suggest, it does tend to eventually dry up. Decent
tractor lube though - where the parts get warm each time you
use the machine.
I used LubriMatic lithium grease the last time I rebuilt my
PTO and it seems to be holding up well. Mobil One synthetic
gear lube is supposedly good also, but never tried it.
