Re: horn ring lube

<< Read from Wurth Dielectric grease tube: High thermal conductivity,
temp. to 400 F. , High heat transfer, Lubricates rubber and plastic, Heavy
consistancy, Protects electrical components.
For use IN electrical insulation, damping and LUBRICATION OF BRASS COMPONENTS
and O-Rings. The brass
horn brush and ring are conducting the energy
(electric) not the grease.
I talked about this stuff during the Stabilant debates. When I learned that
stuff was $35,000 US per liter I decided I would just keep using this stuff.
Never had an electrical failure since I started using it 12 years ago. I
originally got turned on to it for it's thermal transfer properties. Dorf
underengineered heat sinks on a ECM and they would get 300 plus degrees and
burn right up. Coat the back liberally with the dielectric grease and they
last a lifetime.(Amazing-but True!)
p.s.- I'm the one who washes his drivetrain every few weeks.
