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!
