1954 GMC Steering box lubricant


Recommended Posts

My dad has a 1954 GMC half ton. He is looking renew the lubricant in the steering gear, and his owners manual refers him to "SG lubricant" - steering gear lubricant. Any GM experts out there have advice on what to use? 

I know on my Packard, it specified 160w oil, and apparently cotton picker spindle oil from tractor supply company is a near perfect match chemically. Not so sure on his pickup though. Thanks!

so you're saying it will work in the GMC too?


    It is generally used for older vehicles to prevent leakage from older (teens & 20's) steering gears that have no elastomeric seals. 

But it should also work just fine for your GMC.
