Default Re: two tooth steering box lubrication

The Ford service bulletins stress the point to NOT use grease in the steering boxes. Their point is that once the grease is forced out of the gear it is left dry and will rapidly wear and produce hard steering. The oil will continue to flow into the gear and sector to provide continued lubrication. The fitting that resembles a grease fitting was replaced by a plug in later production.
