HS928 right transmission case

Hi all, new member here. I own a small engine repair business here in New Brunswick, Canada. I am fixing an HS928 tracked blower. The right side trans gear case had a couple broken gears that I am replacing. But I am having problems on what kind of grease should I use inside the gear case when I re-assemble it. I would think any kind of general purpose grease would be fine but wanted to make sure. Thanks, Kel

Im after rebuilding 5 in last 2 years on blowers I bought and sell,,,, I use red wheel bearing grease in the tub from Canadian Tire,,,, I was told to use that from a Honda shop here by mechanics be cause its more durable and lasts longer,, and more water resistant,,, I also use it on the chute motors on the hss and gear around the chute itself,,, so far all the ones I sold the rebuilt blowers to said they work fine,,, im sure theres others on here that will be on later tonight will tell you more good products to use

Any lithium complex grease will work well.

No, don't use Lithium Complex grease. Use only Aluminum Complex grease. It's waterproof too. 20X better grease. It doesn't wash out.

Sheaffer's 274 with moly. Best stuff around.

Yes the pin on the main shaft was broken along with the gear that it drives. Still waiting for the parts. I'll also change all the bearings and bushings. As far as grease, I called my honda dealer and he looked in their repair manual and he said is say's to use general purpose grease. I have a couple pouches of Molybdenum cv joint grease that I will use.

Lithium grease typically has better low temperature performance, but the moly grease is very well suited to shear forces between gears.

I've seen moly infused lithium grease too. In this application almost any grease would suffice.

Just service the transmission on my 3 year old ,62 hours service blower today. By what I found inside, I would not recommend going more than 3-4 years tops between servicing.
The grease was already hard, clumpy and deteriorated from water, gears were rusty, one bearing was rough. Regular service will cost less and make your machine more reliable. Honda owners manual says grease that tranny every year, but Im not hearing too many say they do it yearly. Took me about 6 hours by the time it was all done. I will figure on no more than 3 years to the next service.
I purchased a 7 year old recently. The trans mission failed on it before I got to to it. Grease was shot, hard clumps. Counter shaft bushing was completely gone, no trace, in turn the play had worn out the countershaft and gear. So the repair was all bushings, all bearings and seal. 2 gears, the countershaft. substantial work to clean up the remaining gears and case, sand drive shaft etc. Costly repair. 7 years is too long!!!
