I have seen Red n Tacky grease advertised on Wolf Performance https://www.wolfperformance.co.uk/red--n--tacky-.html as a grease for king pins. I had a look at a review on YouTube https://youtu.be/mMmSQSjraSE And it looks very impressive. Do many people s use this on their Morgan’s?

I use red & tacky now but in the past just use a moly grease. Though Castrol make one with I think calcium that is supposed to last longer when exposed to water.

Red & Tacky is also known as 'Pin & Bush' grease, sold for use on link pins on excavator buckets and the like

About 3 quid a tube from my local lubrication merchants.

Greasing.....

And seriously, I have a lot of respect for his Morgan knowledge and experience.

Grateful for some advice on a grease gun please. Is it worth buying electric - nothing else to grease beyond the roadster.

Wanner are very good. Can be picked up fairly cheap on eBay.
