Run down to your nearest snowmobile dealer and pick up a tube of snowmobile
grease. I use Ski Doo brand as it is a synthetic that maintains reasonable
viscosity, even in our Winters! The grease is formulated to handle more abuse
than we generally subject it to, and works well in a rotor over the Summer as
well. It may not be what the manufactures recommend (I sure they have their
own brand at a representative manufacture's price structure), but I have used
it for years with good success. Check at Tousley Sports or Waldoch Sports
Center. Lets hope we don't have another January ice storm like last year!
