Lubricants

Protect moving parts by sealing out dirt and moisture or prevent corrosion with industrial lubricants from Grainger. Heavy duty greases rated for your machine operating needs keep joints moving without adding damaging friction and heat. Help smaller, more delicate moving parts stay un-stuck with a penetrating lubricant spray including silicone, graphite and oil types. Use a lubricant like a corrosion inhibitor to stave off decay from rust and corrosive elements, prime, clean and protect susceptible metal parts.

Answer: 
Grainger has contacted the product supplier and have been advised by them of the following:
Grainger part numbers 5JPN9 and 5JPP5 are both a good choice for this application. Both are considered a “dry lube”, meaning that they will not trap and attract dirt. They are a synthetic PTFE base (think Teflon) and provide good lubrication for that application, a lot of glass and door installers prefer this over an oil base lube. However, it is recommended that you contact Grainger’s Tech Support team, and allow for a more specific conversation to gather details on the application environment.

I use standard hydraulic fluid with one bottle of LubeGard Power Steering Treatment in my snow plow hydraulics with great success down to -35°F.
LubeGard stops low temp squealing and protects system seals.

I've used Jaymor's 191S on pocket watches, did a great job on even watches that did not run or I could not open, and it's non-toxic. I'm guessing it would work on all clocks.

Answer: 
No, tried it in Beckers and Rietschle vacuum pumps years ago but the cost is prohibited. If I remember, it caked up. Suggest using Petamo kluger white syn grease. Avail thru the above distributor or I seen it on eBay. Expensive but not as expensive as krytox. Maybe like $100 for a cartridge.

Answers

Answer: 
I would check to see if there is an inspection opening to determine what 'gunk' is in the bottom of the gearbox. First drain the gear oil and observe what it is the appearance / condition of the oil being drained. I've seen a molasses gunk type come out and seen an almost new oil come out. Also observe if there is a metallic sheen to the oil. This would indicate severe wear of bearings or gears. DO NOT attempt to run mineral spirits, also refered to as paint thinner, and run the gears under load to flush. I normally use min spirits or even Brake Kleen but it must be thoruoghly dry if you do clean out. Some sight glasses are plastic and would be affected by solvents, Refer to the manufactor for their recommendations, if available. Run under NO load to thoroughly circulate oil. Then check oil level again.You did not mention if there is splash lubrication or circ pump. Gunk and debris can seriously affect the oil pomp if there is one.
