so the big test. i drill a hole in the steering cable and injected ship to shore plid into the housing and turning the wheel from stop to stop. it took 1/2 hour of turning and injecting and then when i turned the cable up hill it would bring rust up and out the hole so i kept going till the rust stopped coming.let it sit over night and tried again and the same thing in about 5 minutes. went out every hour and sprayed and turned and now the wheel turns like new. tape the hole and do this two or three time a year and the cable sould never seaze again

here is the web site for the spray www.ship-2-shore.com. this stuff will stop and protect from rust and corrosion and is dielectric it will cover and stop rust or corrosion
