As a clergyperson, I thought the title of your post (a sly reference to the Apostles' Creed) was hilarious. Kind of Monty Python-ish...

I got out again today here in Central PA, feels real good to be out shifting gears! Picked up some Moly 60 today at our local Honda dealer and it was only $8.95. Now its soon time to do my spline lube and possibly degoat it at the same time.

Moly 60 for $8.95, good deal, I gave a small fortune for my moly 70 (no better than 60), I'm thinking something like $35 for 8oz, don't remember if that was plus shipping or included shipping...lol... Maybe you should start selling on the forum forum...lol...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

$35 for 8 oz is not that bad, just under $4.50 per oz. The moly60 is only a 100 ml or about 3 oz for $8.95= $3 per oz. My cost at the local Honda stealer works out to just over $6 USD per oz.

It`s a good thing a tube should do 3-4 lube jobs.

I had & still have about 1/2 pt of what I beleive is moly (powder) but am not absolutly positive it is... If I had been sure, I would have mixed it with some #2 Red Lucas grease and had a good batch of moly grease for spline lube cheap...lol...
Wish I knew a way to test it...
Thanks and have a good one...Old Dog...
