The rust around the pins shows that.

You have moving parts in there. They need some light oil/grease.
There is dizzy specific grease for these centrifugal weights.

Do I sense of tone of sarcasm in that statement?
If so not appreciated one bit.
Why go in that direction instead of being friendly?

Move the weights by hand, you'll see the moving parts and lube as necessary, just like any moving part.

thanks gaz, really appreciate that you answered.

what kind of grease? cause that was the initial question.

Can I use Lithium based EP2 grease? I read that that is pretty durable and I have it here.



they sometimes call it white grease over here...because it will stay white and is pretty sticky

Any lubricant is better than none.

Lithium or molybdenum will be fine.

and VERY LITTLE or it'll fling all over the inside of the cap.

NAPA sells an ignition-specific grease, p/n ECH ML1

I don't suppose that's available in Europe.
