If there is any more info you need please tell me an I will put on the web. You can spend a lot on classic oils if you want. I never do. There is some evidence that modern oils may prematurely wear the bronze bearings. I put molybdenum disuphide in all boxes steering, gear and diff. Then they still work if they go dry, the most common reason for failure as not many of us stick to the checking schedule set in the handbook. Unless you are lucky with good sealing, most boxes should be checked every 500 miles. On a long rally you do not have the luxury of time! Happy Christmas.
