Exclamation All American Chassis schedule for maintenance?

I want to know about chassis maintenance. I'm sure it is much more than I already have in mind, which is basically crawling under with a grease gun loaded with chassis lube and looking for zerk fittings.

A brief search of the WOG for chassis maintenance turned up threads concerned with areas that will NOT respond well to chassis lube. Splines that requires a lighter lube grease, for instance. I don't believe I have seen the full maintenance schedule for my '91 SP. I definitely don't know of a "grease point" diagram. I don't want to be the owner who ran his 'bird into the ground by not maintaining the All American, so I want to ask WHERE I can find a list, or better yet a detailed description of what service and lube is needed?

I don''t ask much. Give me this. :inflexible:

Thanks a big bunch, WOGgers. You're the best!

--Ned

This is for the FC, but the Sp should be similar.

I'd think an SP would have a few less

Only difference I can see is the drive shaft. All the fittings are within three feet of each other. While lubing you might want to squirt a bit of lube at the pivot points of the steps.

YOU GUYS ARE THE GREATEST.

On the WOG, it seems I won't likely ever broach a new topic, though born to explore I am. This is not a good thing for the explorer self esteem, but a Real Good Thing (tm) in many other meaningful ways. I bow low to your diligence in anticipating my deep and routine concerns for The Bus!

(And thanks for the pointers and links. The greatest, really . )

Ned,

I've attached the 17 point grease fitting chart for our SP. Zoom in for pictures! The title block says WLPS, and it was drawn in '87, maybe they didn't have the nomenclature WLSP figured out yet?

I see that the automatic brake adjusters require a special "stopmaster grease" with an GL1 rating. All I have been able to find are GL2 rated grease. My local NAPA carries the Valvoline Cerulean Grease. http://www.valvoline.com/pdf/hd_cerulean_grease.pdf

Will this work? It doesn't have any Moly-Disulfides. Any other recommendations?

Tim
