Repacking hubs of Safari - What are standards for synthetic

Has anyone used Gulflex Moly EP2 Lithium Complex? It has a viscosity index of 90, dropping point of 550 degres F and is NLGI Grade 2? I need to repack the hubs on my Safari 03 but am not sure what to use. AS specifies NLGI 2 ASTM 265, but the ASTM alone doesn't provide a dropping temperature specification without the number in degrees. I see written "ASTM D 2265" but not ASTM 265. Henschen specifies a more defined standard: Lithium Complex, NLGI Grade 2, Dropping Point of 230 C(446 F), and Viscosity Index of 80 minimum. I have used Mobil 1 synthetic but its dropping point is only 350 F. Does anyone know what brands meet the Henschen standard?

I've used Penzoil red for over 100,000 miles on my stream with no trouble. Use it on my 1 ton TV front disk bearings also.

Good stuff. At WalMart it is $3 for the 14 oz tube. It took a look at their web site to learn that 707 Penzoil L Red meets the Henschen spec.
