Ah. The real manufacturer is the wire rope manufacturer so you should
follow their advice. My experience with them is to use a light lube such as
PreLube 6. There are other applications and suitable materials so the
ultimate choice is up to you. That's the nice thing about TT - you can decide
whose advice is worthwhile and whose isn't.
And - as always - the advice here is worth what you pay for it - hi.
