I normally have used WD-40 for everything and this is the first time I used silicone. what doe the "experts" recommend?? John

Well it got in the governer and ruined the dial. I even wiped all the lube out and off the surfaces but no go. Well go go it did zing right back to the start, in a heart beat.. So my advise comes from been there done that experience.
