Manual Steering Box Lube

The service manual for my '64 Tempest calls for "all-season steering gear lubricant" for the manual steering box. Looking for reccomendations for current lubricants on the market........

Use regular wheel bearing grease.

Later, mikey
my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example

I have used a whole tube of grease in a badly leaking box.
Mostly 85w90 rear end lube gets used, as it is about the same viscosity as 30 wt engine oil.
I wouldn't have a problem with using synthetic 20w50 engine oil either.
that's what is in one of my 63's now for 60,000+ miles.
