    Dano I knew this stuff was good but it just saved me about $350. I took my tailgate spreader apart since it was locked up, I cleaned all the old grease out of the geabox & filled it with FF. I tried to turn the shaft with channel lock pliers before hand but after FF and about 5 minutes I was able to turn it with my hands. I have sprayed it out 2 times & refilled wit FF but now I am letting it soak all night before the final cleanup & regrease. I thought about filling the case with FF instead of regular grease, what are everyones thoughts on this.:salute:

    I would use grease in case for normal use and then clean andlube it with FF when your done with it for the year.

    I ended up putting synthetic waterproof grease in the case as well as around all the seals. I am going to spray FF in the bottom of the spreader where the motor & gearbox are just to be safe.:salute:

    My snow ex spreader wouldn't turn, so I sprayed FF on it, then after 3 min. It spun like it was new.

    This stuff is a very cheap fix compared to new parts, I will definitely attest to that.

    I think Dano would prefer the word "inexpensive" as to 'cheap" !:nod:

    OOPS This was a very inexpensive repair compared to a new gearbox. Thanks GV I didn't want to sell FF short.:nod:

    My fuse box at home keep popping when I plugged my block heater in so I was going to bring it to the shop because my last truck the core was bad so I just sprayed some FF on the block heater plug in and it quit popping the box. Not sure why but was happy. I even went and bought a new extension cord and didnt help. Any ideas why?
