Default U joint grease

There have been many posts on what is the best grease to use in the U joint for closed drive cars. I am working on a 1930 Model A and need to replace all the old grease. seeking best suggestion about what type of grease and how much of the grease to fill the clam shell.

I seem to remember "corn huskers" grease or some other brand that is "low melt" grease and to use one complete tube, but my memory aint what it use to be......

thank you for any and all help and suggestions... don

corn head grease for a john deere combine or such. personally I use a mixture of synthetic grease and synthetic doping 50/50 mix well together and put in the u-joint housing and yes use a full tube of whatever you decide
