What are your thought on using this on the drive splines on the wheel?
Molybdenum grease used in high pressure applications like the driveshaft splines and the pins on the final drive. It bonds with the material and allows constant lubrication. I agree with Briese, pay me now or pay me later.
Do you remove the final drive when you remove the rear wheel?Chances Honda was just trying to cover ther butt by putting the best lubricant the money can buy🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️While others may work just fine,I personally use john Deere corn head greas in mine ,103 k miles and when I remove the rear wheel it looks great?
Wasn't the original question about the drive axle splines, not the drive itself?The Lucas is an extreme pressure grease with a timken rating it will do everything that a moly grease will do. It is used in agricultural and marine applications which are more severe than anything your wings drive will ever face.
that type of corrosion Fretting is not from the type of grease. splines done that when there is excess movement forward and aft of the driveshaft splines with the cup. the only thing that will prevent that almost 100% for a spline coupling joint is being submerged in an oil bath. How to prevent it is the condition of the spring clip on the end of the drive shaft and the Most important thing is extremely easy slide movement of the universal joint. The spline connection should have zero fwd/aft movement, all movement should be taken up by the universal joint splines. make sure only one type of grease is used for the U-joint. I use grease with higher moly content than honda calls for.
it will not do everything that moly does. u need to study about moly in detailThe Lucas is an extreme pressure grease with a timken rating it will do everything that a moly grease will do.
