Wow i'm confused why do i need to know about organopolysiloxan? I'm not a veteran jeeper by any means. So, basically the info I would need is, where to buy the "right" stuff, what is the application for the "right" stuff, and how much to use. This info might be good for some people but it would be exceptional to all if you could simplify it. Just my two cents take it as you will.
Great info. I'm getting some of this stuff! I've been talking to a bunch of old school guys about mixing it up by hand. Yuk!

I posted that to make the point there is a huge gap between those that brew this stuff up and those who use it, two different worlds,
I am attempting to simplify this complex situation the info is here on this thread in laymans terms,
However this information is further complexed by years off mis-direction from the auto manufactures,
Just look at that viscous coupler component inside transfer-cases, a component that needs a grease, a component that is not a servicable persay,
So the engineers have to break out the good stuff, no one would buy a rig that you would have to disassemble the transfer case to re-lube the coupler,
Just look at the rear axle on rigs that the wheel bearings are lubed by the 80-90w oil, those bearings are happy never need repacked, I have torn apart rear ends, that where over 60 years old, never serviced, happy as can be,
There is a basic rule of thumb in the oil and grease world, oil is better,
so it is logical to conclude that a grease with 90% oil is better than a grease with 60% oil in it
That is why Old school Jeep engineers used a #0 grease in this application and why modern manufactures followed the same idea ,
Did the auto manufactures just forget to tell the aftermarket? doubt it

But there are a few magazines that are going to run this story soon, so call me a clown or whatever but the fact of the matter is that this is a Toyota Trade Secret, that Jeep gave them,
I have not been ousted here because this is a Jeep site and this is Jeep information, so go back to your North West wheeler whiners and tell them they are hiding behind thier computers and cant handle the truth,

Almost a year and this gets brought up again. Way to revive a dead thread!
