    yep...and special grease and procedures too...not my idea.
    Have you ever noticed that geese walk around like they are drunk and trying not to get a public intox ticket?

    In the past we always installed a homemade oil cup and every year at winter maintenance we would refill it with OIL-22, never had any leaks at the first stage vane tang.

    If the tang operator has one plug, It gets oil 22. If the tang operator has 2 plugs (latest design) then it gets grease, But not any type of grease. Must be rheolube 734A which is a R123 compatible grease.
    It's All Good!!!
