As you said you do not have the tech. books yet. Have no idea of how to get the ship back in the bottle- however the 120 manual calls for normal grease as for chassis or wheel bearings. Your car came with a spall grease gun that in practice can be used to service the car-although it would take more time. So forget the Dridene and use a good high temp bearing grease-good luck. Geo.
