The manual states to use grease/lube as does the video, is that a stadard white lithium grease or something different.  I notice the agitater shaft has lithium grease on it from the factory.

Standard white lithium grease should be fine.

I'll make the spanner tomorrow.

Would be cool to see a photo of the spanner wrench you made.

 Got it finished and its working good as new, thank you very much.

I threw this spanner together in a hurry, its nothing fancy, I didn't have the correct size hole saw so I used the fire wrench to make the hole, I used 1/2" square stock to engauge the notches in the nuts.  The welding sucks big time, I didn't adjust the welder, just hot glued it.





This some of my handywork, I finished this last April, its a little nicer work.


Thanks again to everyone that answered.  Mama's a happy girl tonight!! 8)
