Okay, I just made it today to the pool store for lubricant, like Chris J said I should. Is the teflon stuff better, same or worse?? I think the flash or smoke point is 425. Anyone use this stuff? I bought one tube of regular silicone (I think that's what the regular one is) and one with the teflon. Also, which size conduit fits the typical larger knockout in a trans? I'm just about through with the flex and I'm sick of pulling the CAST #10 through it.
