My model is a non-hydro with the gearbox that turns power 90 degrees from the output shaft to the (belt driven) 4 speed trans. I am currently going through the gearbox and would like to know what kind of grease to put back in. The manual says DX-629 Fibrex, but I am not able to find any info on that product. Any thoughts? I have some EP grease laying around...

According to the Ford Service Manual, this just uses Chassis grease.
