Hi all,

I'm after some urgent advice. I am finding it very hard to find moly grease here in the south of France to use with my engine rebuild. Lithium general purpose is in great supply though - can I use lithium, or does it have to be Moly?

Appreciate and quick responses, as I am in town now, and it takes a while to get here!

Thanks,

James

while you've grease on your hands, the two engine case gaskets...tiny smear of grease all way round the gaskets = better seal & they just fall off & can be re-used next time cases are off.

If you can find grease meant for Constant Velocity (CV) joints ....car driveshafts .... it's usually Moly grease .... admittedly not as high a Moly content as Honda specify, but better than a straight lithium grease.
