I know that the Morgan Three-Wheeler owners used to advocate thixotropic grease (Shell Tivela Compound A), but then went off it after several recorded cases of the stuff emulsifying to an off-white corrosive sludge. To my way of thinking, for an emulsion to form there MUST be water present, and perhaps Morgan transmissions let water in ? I can’t see how a Scott three-speed gearbox can get water in it, even from condensation, so Keith’s experience is puzzling….
