    but the updated lube schedule from Piper says to use Mil-G-23827either way, lube is better than
    no lube

    Curious about the date of list. It doesn't have my Cub N26040 listed anywhere. Current
    registration and flown regular for last 22yrs.:blue plane:Because yours isn't registered as a

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Under CAR 4, a "light aircraft" can use an
    uncertified prop, all others have to use a prop that is certified. CAR 4 definition of "light
    aircraft" is 1000 l...

    .... I think a lot of the hardened grease issues are caused because folks don't always clean
    the old grease off completely every year, and just re-grease, and the old layers become the
    problem...The p...

    Regardless of what you use, the main thing is keep it lubricated, wear goes up exponentially
    when un-lubricated. Grease is the industry standard for jackscrew type mechanisms. Piper's lube
