Yes, you can grease with Aeroshell 33, but make sure it does not contain sulfur. Sulfur corrodes bronze and brass gears.
The top of the mount comes off and you can then grease all parts of the clutch assembly. Easy-peasy.

Yes, I've had it a while! Yes, original gear box with the two allen head screws for adjustment of the gear mesh. Still a great mount though - a workhorse.
Do you have instructions for greasing the top rotating bearing? I would probably want to re-grease the worm and wheel at the same time. Is the AeroShell 33 ok to use for both?
