The sticker on my motor says use NLGI No. 2 lubricant that is water resistant. I found some grease at the second hand store that is NLGI No. 2 and says its water insoluble. Coastal Premium Moly EP Grease suitable for Ford Lincoln Mercury chassis, drum brake wheel bearings, u-joints, etc. Lithium 12 hydroxy extreme pressure grease. Is this the right type of grease to use?

Mmm, water soluble is not quite the same thing as water resistant. I would look for a Marine grease if you have time to look. Water soluble implies that water will dilute it and turn it to nothing.


Edit: I missed the "In" in front of INsoluble!. Sorry for the misinformation.

Yes, that should be ok to use.

Not being rude, just pointing out that when you reread the op, he does say water insoluble, not water soluble.

I edited my post, my apologies. I actually looked up water soluble grease to see if that existed. My bad.
