    Default control cable lubricant

    I am restoring a PA-20 and now ready to reinstall all the control cable. I still have to galvanized cable but I have checked them over completly with a strong light and Mag glass, I also pulled them repeatedly thru soft cloth and manipulated every inch.Someone had painted them and it took some time to remove the paint now I am looking for the lubricant called out in AC43-13, does anyone know where I can get Mil-C-11796?

    Par al ketone is what I used on my new cables it can be found at Aircraft Spruce for around $10.00 a pint. Works best if you can warm it up before rubbing it in to the cables

    Braycote 248 is what we use. We use class 3 which is the consistency of a standard grease. The industry calls this product "cosmoline".
    Class 3 will not need to be heated, but wont have the staying power of a class 1.

    Boeing uses Aeroshell Grease 33 (BMS 3-33) on its cables. you can buy grease 33 in a standard grease tube which may be more economical.

    We buy this type of product thru AVIALL
