Looking for advice on how to lubricate the front and rear leaf springs on '26 Runabout without removing from frame.

We usually only provide the proper method for performing a particular function, and for this function, the proper way to lubricate leaf springs is to dismantle them and apply slip paint between the leafs and reassemble, but something is better than nothing, so, if you want to lubricate your springs without dismantling them, I have found a very good Teflon based penetrating spray lubricant called "Tri-Flow". Spray it on the outside of your springs and it should penetrate the interior of the assembled spring and lubricate between the leafs. Jim Patrick

Tri-Flow makes lube, grease, and degrease products primarily for bicycles. My husband uses them for his road racing bikes. I've seen them online but if you want to buy local try the bike stores.

Back when leaf springs were more common there were tools available to spread the leafs for easier application of grease. You may find something at a swap meet or ebay :-)

I just did mine with a coffee can, some used motor oil and a small brush. :-)
