Yep. I stuffed towel around the area to catch any drips when applying and it’s all going to sit for a day to let it all evaporate. The next night for imaging and make g a new PEC isn’t until Thursday at this point so there is no need to rush.

As a former auto mechanic I used to re-pack a lot of front wheel bearings.
I have repeatedly seen where a very tiny amount of solvent left in the
bearings when they are re-greased is enough to turn the fresh grease into
a liquid after just a few day's driving. Granted, the worm and wheel on
a equatorial mount do not operate under anywhere close to the same conditions
as the front wheels of a car, but it is a good illustration of what a little
bit of residual solvent can do to the properties of the grease.
