That red stuff is probably the only grease you can buy in Seever ville. It
comes from the co-op. The way I figure it, if they bought a gallon back in
the mid 1970s, they would still have most of it left. I had the notion that
warming it might help my Triton 544. I set it on a steam radiator for a few
hours. All it accomplished was making the rig hot.
