Any updates on the grease. I too did the fogmod and bought the MS33 grease. Even built a dedicated grease gun. I did change my grease fitting to a standard style zerk. Now the grease issue:
I store my grease guns in a plastic tool box laying on their side, in the garage. I've greased the OPDA a few times, usually every oill change. Last time I greased the OPDA there was "oil" dripping out the bottom of the grease gun. Not unusual as I have seen this oil "separation" with other greases over the years. Yesterday, I pulled the OPDA and "tested" the grease gun to assure it had fresh clean grease at the tip. It would not emit any grease, thought the tube was empty. Opened the gun and found very stiff, very dry, very sticky MS33. Far thicker and stickier than peanut butter. Still had about 1/2 tube of grease, but I would not use it as I did not consider it as having any lubrication properties. I opened the "spare" tube of MS33. Still nice and soft, still had that characteristic smell, cleaned the gun, put the new tube in the gun, flushed out the old sticky MS33 from the hose, greased the OPDA. Put the gun away.
Anybody else have similar events with the MS33? I looked back at my records, first modded OPDA and opened the first tube in Dec 2010. Maybe I am expecting a too long shelf life after opening the tube?
BTW - little to no tooth wear in 10K miles. Using MS33 and M1 0-40 Euro due to high ZDDP levels
