*NO! WAIT!  You've built the most magnificent*
*engine stand in the universe and it deserves*
*something special in the gearbox. *

*Hie thee to an industrial supplies store in your town and buy a
"Lubriplate" product.*

*They have sqeeze-tube white lubes that would be the exalted equal of your
*heirloom hand-down engine stand and you must accept nothing less.*
*(Gawd, I love "over-kill" and I do it ever chance I get!)*
*Tony in Texas *
