Chevron Delo EP NLGI 00 Semi-Fluid Grease for vintage steering gearboxes.
$24 per 1.875 pound container (approximately 1 quart), plus shipping, or
$13 per standard 14 oz. cartridge, plus shipping.

This is a superior, synthetic semi-fluid (self-leveling) grease for all vintage steering gear applications. Its specs exceed that of the commonly used Champion “00” and Penrite Semi-Fluid Steering Gear Fluid from Australia (which surprisingly at manufacturer stated 18 pounds, doesn’t meet EP minimum standard of 40 pounds for Timken OK Load test, per ASTM D 2509). The base oil viscosity is equivalent to 90 weight gear oil, which was the original spec for many GM steering gearboxes. It will flow better than the commonly used John Deere “Cornhead” grease, which is NLGI 0 rated. It should not leak as does 90 weight gear oil from vintage steering gearboxes in normal condition and operation.

Since it is available from Chevron in a minimum 35 pound (5 gallon) pail, this is excess material well over and above my needs, recently acquired and repackaged in my shop in fluorinated HDPE quart containers which are suitable for long-term storage of oil and grease products. Based on several requests, I have also repackaged some of the grease in in standard 14 oz grease cartridges as well as the quart bottles. The cartridge tubes are brand new, metal seal on one end and plastic cap on the other. They are HPDE lined for safe long-term storage of grease. Each container is sealed and labeled with the Chevron Smart-fill labeling system code for Delo EP 00 grease. Limited supply.

A copy of the Chevron Product Data Sheet (PDS) and MSDS will be included in the shipment. Send a PM for more details!

You can purchase if you want but for me, filling the gear box with chassis lube(per the manual) and then tipping off with a little 90 wt will work very well. The addition of the gear oil thins the grease so that it flows better.

You can certainly do as you say, but for those who prefer a quality grease, hard to beat a premium synthetic that has complete, known specs and won't separate.

I have sold some of my excess Chevron Delo EP NLGI 00 Semi-Fluid Grease, but still have more available, repackaged in standard 14 oz grease cartridges as well as 1 quart bottles. The tubes or bottles are filled and weighed in my shop, since this is excess material beyond my current needs. The specs and the 35 pound pail from which this grease was repackaged is shown in the original post.

$24 per 1.875 pound container (approximately 1 quart), plus shipping.

$13 per standard 14 oz. cartridge, plus shipping.
