I have a Black and Decker 73 circular saw that I am doing maintenance on. I am going to change the bearings, check the brushes, and regrease the gears. The regreasing is where I need some assistance. Can anyone recommend a grease that would work well in this application? Your thoughts?

As a general rule of thumb , for metal on metal gear I would look for Molybdenum grease , and for plastic I would use any grease with Teflon in it.
