I am getting ready to do a mid season check of my 93 Pro Star's steering. I have used various types of grease in the past on the cable and rudder. What is the best grease for this system?

I use Mobil 1 Synthetic or Royal Purple Synthetic for all my grease points. The Synthetics have superior wash out resistance - as even compared to the specialized marine greases... IMO

Any grease will be fine. No need to obsess about what type of grease in this low-stress/low-pressure, routine maintenance application. Pick up some wheel-bearing grease. That will be as good as anything.

I use that marine grease from WalMart. Works fine.

Just for the record, it was a joke. I do know what a cervical scan is. :)

Funny how these threads go from grease, to cervical, to cervex.

An old say'n that I like: Any grease is better than no grease.
