Hi James, no I don't. I use a lithium grease, and use the same all the time. The original grease in my gearboxes was completely solid so I cleaned it out.. So mixing wasn't an issue. The box I did in situ until I had time to dismantle it was fine as the old grease was solid round the edges and the new grease was where it matters

The suggested upgrade of adding grease nipples to the furler gear boxes sounds like a great idea to me. I am planning to take care of this the next time that I am at the boat.   I know that some types of grease do not mix well.  Do you by chance know what type of grease is best to use in these gearboxes based on what was in there originally?
