    ?Ideas for lubing reverse cable?

    Has anyone been able to lube a reverse cable thru end to end? A conventional cable luber does me no good. Any ideas?

    If you take it out, you can hang it vertically and drip oil down the cable and into the sheath, and let gravity lube the rest of the cable. I did that with my GFs shifter cable from her Prelude and it worked fine - it just a few days in the garage... Ron

    Thanks guys,

    I think I'm gonna try the hose / pressure method as at least I'll have something to talk about. It'll be nice if it works!
