Looking for help or advice as to how we can come up with ideas on keeping our choke and throttle cables from getting rusty to the point of no return. I have come across numerous cables already that have so much rust build up in them, that penetrating oil just won't cut. I realize replacements are available and they aren't real high dollar items, but has anybody found something that we could use to either install or apply over the cables to help keep rain and moisture from penetrating through the casing and corroding the cables inside?
Just some ideas as to what I've noticed other collectors have used: gas line hose, electrical tape, and plastic coat. The plastic coat is actually a powder that comes in a can, and you simply add water to it to make it a liquid form. When mixed, you dip in it whatever it is that you want a plastic coating over. I believe it comes in three color choices: black, red, and green. Never used it before, but if anybody has, please post your results or opinions.
On the 1968 140 restoration post by member ckjakilne (Craig), I noticed his choke/throttle cable seems to have a clear coating over it, so hopefully he'll see this post and be able to comment on what it is, and if he recommends on using it. I think I'd rather have a clear coating over the cables, instead of a colored coating.
Any ideas or recommendations?
