Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Furling Gearbox Differences

If you are going to disassemble the gearbox, why not just fill it with SAE90 oil?
That will do a much better job of keeping the gears lubricated than grease.
Grease tends to get thrown off gears as they turn and doesn't stay where the gears are meshed, which is what you really want to lubricate.
