    What is a good, easily to find dry lube?

    As the title says, needed for bearings and such after washing off. By easy to find, I mean like wally world or an autoparts store.
    Thanks,
    Craig

    For bearings you don't want dry lube but a light oil like 3in one oil will work and for a dry lube. Which isn't dry but dries with Teflon protection order a bottle of Sullivan's dry ice

    I would use a light coat of Hydraulic oil applied with a cloth; I also like LPS brand TKX spray lubricant.

    I use the Finish Line waterproof lubricant for bike chains, a bit hard to find though. ^ WD-40 is
    NOT a lubricant, it is a rust displacer or a de-seizer.

    It does not matter how old or new the WD40 is... it is more of a solvent than a lubricant.

    I use silicone spray. I wipe my skid plates with it using a rag and wipe pretty much every thing I can get to (a little bit goes a long ways) I spray my ball ends, drive shafts where they connect to each other and to the joints that connect to the wheels and differentials. Keeps every thing lubed and clean.(same thing, a little bit goes a long ways)

    im giving cerflon a shot. it is a teflon and ceramic compound made by liquid plumber. first time using it but it seems to be working. it isvery watery so you have to put it on a little at a time and put on multiple coats. if you are supposed to be able to clearly see the lubricant after it dries then i didn't put enough on.

    Wd-40 works great and 3 in 1 works great. Both available everywhere.

    +1 I use silicone spray with PTFE, more kind to plastics and rubber than wd40.

    Guide books aren't part of the packaging.
