I just cleaned my fuel shut-off valve and lubed it with this grease. Now the lever is easy to turn.

I got a 2oz. tube from Lang's a couple years ago. At the rate I'm using it, it will be in my will. Good stuff for shut off valves and works as advertised. But, a little goes a long ways.

Kevin...could you save a lazy guy (me) some time and post Lang's link to it so I don't have to troll through 8 pages of fuel valve stuff? Thanks

Tim

Just for you.

I got a bigger tube on line, and should also find more uses for it, maybe a fleet of air craft, as that tube will last a long time only on T's!

Thank you Dan! Stuff's not cheap is it? Gonna get one anyway. I like Gary's idea, if it weren't for the lousy shipping fees!

This is what I used on two sediment bulb valves and petcocks about 20 years ago. Has not let me down yet.

You sure don't find it on ebay or nothing do ye? I was working on my fuel bowl for the T and someone here sent me a small amount of lube in a syringe and I think I still have a dab of it. Last a long time.

In my search I found this. Which I want to get some of. I think this would be great for those pesky glass fuel bowls that leak with new gaskets and fussing trying to get them to quit leaking.

Good stuff. I bought my tube from Aircraft Spruce as Dan posted above me. I think it was a 5 oz tube, it should last me a lifetime. It is a little sticky so careful about getting it on you or other things. It lasts quite a while on the valves I have done, but like anything out there, It does wear off after some time or alot of use. I think about a year and a half was the shortest time I had on one valve before disassembling and relubing it.

I wish it were available in smaller tubes. I once looked into possibly repackaging it into small tubes and offering it for sale, but the tubes are expensive unless you buy massive quantities and if your time is worth anything, and so on, until I just gave up on the idea. I suppose I have a lifetime supply for myself, my friends, and my descendents.

Thank you Hal. Dummy me, I didn't notice that tube further down the link when I looked at it the first time. Haven't ordered any yet, so probly will get that one since it's a bit cheaper. Thanks to both you and Dan for your troubles. :-)

When I was in the Navy, we used to call it peanut butter. Smeared on a bolt or nut where access is an issue it holds it in place on your wrench to aid in installing. I can't think of any tight spots on the T but everything else we touch in life it is good for that purpose.
