    Default Bridgeport Lubricants (Can someone Help)

    I'm just about ready to turn on the bridgport 2J variable drive and I want to make sure the lubes are topped off. My manual says Vectra Heavy Medium for the spindle and no. 2 way oil in the one shot. What is a substitute for the heavy medium since I can't source it locally? I read 24 pages of posts yesterday and never did get a simple answer that I can understand. Is ISO 34 OK??? I seem to have seen that in one of the many posts.
    Also, I need to repack my angular contact bearings and want to use the best lube. Can someone point me in the right direction for that also?
    Lotz of questions this morning.
    Thanks in advance.

    This is way oil.
    A light spindle oil is used for the spindle. They are not grease packed.
