What is an easy to get (local) lubricant to use for head dampeners on our helis? Silicon?

Brett,
I use the 3M lubes. You can find them here if you can't find them locally.

(not the best name but they have lots of stuff)

Do a search on "lubes". I use the wet silicone lube on the dampers as well as a lot of other things (I'm talkin' about the heli -- c'mon!).

Second the 3M silicone wet type lubricant. It's awesome on head dampners.

You'll have to ask my wife

Actually, I've got a longer a answer but didn't want to offend those who are 30 and younger That's how graphic the answer is

Sorry, been in court the past 1 1/2 weeks. It's time for humor. The monkey suit was killing me!
