When I ran one I used a 50-50 mix of STP Oil Treatment and 20-w-50 racing oil. I took it off after what a mess it made.

So how do you grease/the shaft now, Any pics would appreciated..
I'm also making a mess, it coming out the front of the stuffing tube, actually getting it in even.

I've got an oiler with a valve so that controls it some. Aeromarine has a seal that controls the mess at the engine side but then you've still got it leaking at the prop.

It was a custom piece as the guy made one like that, plain top and one with zig-zags. He didn't make a lot of them.
