Yes. I pulled my new cable out of sheath and lubed with powdered graphite and reassembled. Worked great. Smooth with not bouncing at all.

'73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

'73 F code convertible. Bright red. Needs total restore. (IE HOT MESS)

synthetic with PTFE (teflon) will not harden in cold temps.

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic! thumb

This super lube looks like it would also be good to use on the door parts, lock, regulator etc..

WCCC suggests using a brake lube called Sil-Glyde which has the same qualities of this super lube.

Pull out the cable. Graphite lube and try to avoid getting anything up around the end by the speedo itself and into the speedo.

Good point!  Whatever grease you use, don't put any on the last 12-18" of the speedo end.
