Regularity of application is far, far more important than any other quality of grease.

Barebones, one thing you could check on the steering gear is the nut at the bottom, on the arm, if it is too tight, it can make the steering too tight.
It may need loosening slightly.
The cotter key only goes through the nut in a few positions, so the adjustment may need to be set slightly loose, to not be overly tight.
You could jack up the Cub at the center, under the front axle, so the weight is off the front wheels, then you can turn the steering wheel from side to side, and check if it turns freely.

You need to loosen the bolt through the arm so loosening the bottom nut will have any affect. :)

Thank you. Worth a look.
