I'm rebuilding a Lucas windshield wiper motor. It's pretty old and the manual recommends using Ragosine Listate grease for the gear and connecting rod and Shell Turbo 41 for the bearings. Neither is available anymore but after a lot of internet research, I've found that the modern versions would meet these military specs:
- Ragosine: NATO G-382, British DEF STAN 91-12/1, or US MIL-DTL-23549
- Shell: NATO O-240, British DEFSTAN 91-25/3:1997 (no US MIL equivalent)
I've found these standards online and lots of companies that claim to meet them. But I don't understand the technical details well enough to be able to find a consumer/over-the-counter version that I can buy locally (in the US).
Can anybody recommend some or translate these standards into plain English?
