[TenTec] PTO grease

About 3 years ago I rebuilt several PTO's using Phil Woods bicycle grease.
It was highly touted as being a great grease.

The one of those PTO's I was using lately (in a Triton 544) has gotten
squirrely to tune -- acts like the grease has gone or is going bad.  SO, I
don't recommend that grease for this application.

Once I talked with Garland down at Ten-Tec about grease and he told me they
just got it down at the co-op.  I don't know what kind they got at the
co-op, but it sure does last better than my fancy stuff did.

73, Mike
