Getting ready to roll my Toolmaster 1C over and put it to work---Anyone know of modern equivalents for the oil and grease specified in the Cincy operator manual?
Any advice, suggestions or ideas are appreciated.

I'm mostly using Shell Tellus 68. I only have 1 grease fitting (on the Reeves drive) and I use a generic NLGI#1.

All the "P" numbers are Cincinnati part numbers
P-37 (grease)
P-43 (grease)
P-47 (oil)
P-55 (oil)
Any help you can offer will be appreciated

P-47 is equivalent to Vactra #2
P-55 is an ISO 46 AW oil (there are plenty to choose from)
