I found some synthetic SAE 75W- 90 EP marine gear lube that's real cheap and was wondering if it will work in my axle's.

If you run 75/90 Yes!!!
Marine grade is as good or Better than automotive. It's the same with better corrosion properties. If it's right go for it!!!!! and you owe me a lube change./wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif

Thanks for the reply. I thought that might be the case, but I couldn't verify it. I also thought the subject had come up many months ago, (old board?) but I couldn't find it.

Hey Dan it's not waterproof or anything like that. It (at least most marine oils) have a better corrosion properties and are less prone to foaming with H2O in them. Makes a good bar oil for the chain saw too./wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif
