10. Can you use any other grease besides Lubriplate 630 AA and why do you recommend against using a lever type grease gun?

Any grease of the same consistency (NLGI 2) which is water resistant should do the job. The main thing is to keep grease in the bearing cavity and water out. We prefer a hand held jiffy lube since it does not create high pressure. If a cartridge type lever gun is used, it should be pumped gently! Excessive pressure will invert the rubber seal lips and seals will no longer keep water out.
