I just refurbished my steering rack with new seals & boots. Any advice on the proper oil? I put engine oil in it previously and it leaked. Thinking gear oil might be better. Thanks.

Pretty sure I remember hearing that these Triumph Herald racks were filled with oil. Anyone else?

Another Google:
I haven't heard any really-strong argument to support that grease is better than gear oil, even if Triumph seems to specify grease.
