    CRC 6-56 vs Grease on reverse cable and steering cable

    Manual states to use CRC 6-56 and not a grease with teflon in it. Just curious why. Won't the grease do a better job of lubricating and not be washed away as easily as 6-56? Is there something in the grease that is harmful to those parts? The grease in question is Mercury 2-4-c

    CRC is a lubricant spray / Mercury 2-4-c is a grease like you would use on your bearings in a trailer. They serve different purposes

    I have just switched to something new, Mercury Corrosion Guard. It dries slowly to an invisible dry film and seems to do an excellent job of stopping corrosion. I just bought 10 cans from Defender.com for a really cheap price.

    I understand the difference but they both would do the job. Just curious why it mentions not to put on a lubricant with Teflon?

    Teflon is not as good as it was once thought. Teflon oil destroyed many-many engines by filling the first part of the oil clearances on engines with a teflon bridge.

    Thanks for that. I had no idea. You learn something new every day.
