I am wondering what sort of lubrication people use on their metal hardware - I am finding I need to get on some of the thumblocks on my Ultra sled with something, they have become sticky to the point of being difficult ---interested generally in what lubes and solvents people find indespensable and for what specific uses.

Has anybody heard of "boshield" sp?? Tuner cleaner? Also what do you all use then cleaning your mechanical parts to disperse moisture? Looking forward to a whatever anybody would like to share as far as maintenance and such.

Best to all,

Search back on the forum a few weeks for "ACF-50" .

There was a short discussion about this aerosol penetrating lubricant, all round corrosion-arrestor and surface protector. There are a couple of links there for further information.
