I searched a lot on this and didn't come up with anything conclusive. What is the best lubricant to use on on the mechanical advance section of the distributor? I tried white lithium, but it gummed up. I tried WD-40, but it dried up and left some gum. I heard a suggestion of graphite, but I'm not going to put something conductive in there. Currently, I am trying ATF. What has someone used successfully? I am tired of cleaning this out every 4 months. Is it lubed from the factory or is it left dry? I know it's stuck again when my idle roughens from too much advance. Thanks.
