good, it was most likely the water from washing. i give them a serious close up wash in the winter. that would disperse after a while though i would think and not cause any more issues, especially if you put more fluid film down the cables

looking forward to it. worked great on corosion, but did find out something bad about it and that is it freezes apparently. i used it on all choke and throttle cables and every one them worked fine tonight when starting up the machines we just sold(standers). they were parked outside in about 20degrees for maybe 30min and the cables were completely frozen and could not be moved!!

that was a bit disconcerning, but is rare it matters anyhow as we are not using these machines in that cold

Hey Grassman--

I was gonna say it had to be water on there because I actually put fluid film in all my locks and it keeps them from freezing.

up until a couple weekends ago (11/28 to be exact lol) the padlock on our trailer hadn't been openned since the beginning of spring (had no need to use the trailer this year) it's sat uncovered and endured(sp) plentiful rain yet it openned right up on 11/28 and still had plenty of ff on it/in the tumbler (the key got ff on it from inserting it lol) from the ff application it last received last year on 11/30 when it got put away for last winter
