    What lubricant for TR250 wiper box and cable?

    What is the best lubricant for the TR250 windshield wiper box mechanism, and also for the cable that goes into tubes to the wheel box assemblies? I recently bought some Dynolite steering box lubricant from Moss for my TR3 steering box and I'm wondering if that would work for the TR250 wiper lubrication, or is it too light weight? Thanks!

    I can't say it's "best", but ordinary wheel bearing grease seems to work quite well, as long as you relube every couple of decades.
    Modern grease is IMO is a lot better than what they had available back then. So I believe a quality lithium based grease (I use the stuff with moly in it too) is as good as " Ragosine Listate" or whatever it is the manual calls for.
