    I have a 2005 75hp 4 stroke mercury with a Flo-Torq II Hub. I was wondering what the best grease is to put in there. Thanks

    Some of the best grease I've ever used is Jonson/Evinrude's triple guard grease.

    Most any type grease will work. It's just there to stop corrosion build up and the hub to shaft do not move against each other.

    One of my other favorite's is Kendal blue. It adhears very well to metal.

    Thanks for the replies, I almost forgot that I even wrote it. I will try to get some grease soon since mine is wearing off.

    First saw the topic and my befuddled brain immediately compared it to a left hand monkey wrench. I am so gullible. When in basic training my platoon sergeant sent me two miles back to the company supply room to get the key to the parade ground. It was an open field. DUH.
