Found a deal locally on bulk Shell Moly greases.

Shell Super Duty Grease 2 contains 1% Moly, not clearly designated as an EP grease and viscosity of 158 @ 40c. (Seems like most grease used by others have ranged from 130-160 viscosities)

Shell Retinax EPX 2 contains 3% Moly, rated as an EP grease and viscosity of 180 (some literature states 200)

I am leaning towards the EPX 2, because of load ratings, but would a viscosity of 180-200 pose a problem working with the birfs?

Any thoughts or insight greatly appreciated.
