Adjust the collar to the RIGHT to get higher pressure. Spray is ok but you will gunk up everything. I would spray it on a plate and then use a brush to apply.

Found a "green" white lithium grease by Lubrimatic based on vegetable oils. Would it work?

CART WHT LITHIUM GREASE 579262 579262

White lithium grease is recommended for general automotive, farm, and industrial equipment use. NLGI #2. Dropping point 338 F./ 170 C. Base type: Lithium. Do not mix greases of different soap types. Biobased lubricants are manufactured from U.S.A. grown renewable, biodegradable, vegetable oils which have a naturally higher viscosity index. This means that biobased oil is less likely to thin down at high temperatures providing reduced overall operating temperatures and a higher degree of lubrication safety, especially in high speed applications. Biobased lubricants have 4 times the natural lubricity of petroleum. This translates to less friction, less heat, and less wear. Biobased lubricants are safer for you, your health, and the environment. designed to replace and mix readily with conventional petroleum products to help you and your customers use safer and more environmentally friendly lubricants. 14 oz. cartridge.
Manufacturer Part Number: 10308

I wouldn't take the chance. We have no experience with that grease.

I picked up a 16 oz tub of Plews/Edelmann Lubrimatic White Lithium Grease for $5.50 at Ace Hardware yesterday.

Manufacturer: LUBRIMATIC
Part Number: 11350

Founds this pdf spec sheet and saw petroleum as an ingredient with a flash point of 435F. Is this White Lithium Grease Acceptable?
