    Ask Opie oils for the spec sheet and upload it here.
    Let's have a look at its temp range, base oil viscosity @ 40C (mm2/s) and drop point temp (when it goes liquid).
    Make sure you remove all the old grease - wash it out thoroughly.
    A reaction between the old and new grease may cause issues - reduced lubrication/ liquification.

    Close, but it's the specification sheet we need.
    As opposed to the safety sheet.
