I am in the process of addressing the play in the steering box on my 65 Mustang. I am reading two conflicting suggestions in which
one states "use gear oil", and the other states "Use high Temp Grease"
Where as there is no grease fitting, I am leaning to the Gear oil,
but with the cover removed I can see that grease has been used in the past.
Which one is correct to use.
Thanks

If you use gear oil you will have a Yuge puddle in your garage
Adjust the sector shaft and fill it with grease
Hard to find a new one these days

Grease, gear oil is only for transmissions and rear ends(and in light duty cars not even for transmissions)
