    Grease/Oil? Empty Grease/Oil?

    What's the best to keep propshafts spinning smoothly in the prop tube?

    Is there a favourite lubricant? Vaseline maybe? 3-in-one oil? Or is there a better choice?

    I use engine oil on the basis that it is what oil seals are used too?

    Is that just common or garden 20/50 oil, David?
