Default Shellubrication Chart X560

I found this in my box of stuff which is of passing interest. Many of you have probably seen or have one but I just wanted to share. The valve clearance advice on page 2 is a bit worrying though!

the valve clearance for exhaust matches the WSM for HOT and 400, 401 and early 403. But inlet seems definitely wrong.


What do you use for the propeller shaft?

Hypoid oil 140 like Spirax 140 EP (as mentioned in the manual)


grease like Retinax A?
