Can anyone advise me how I might lubricate the pivot for my classic wind transducer? It's about 7 years old and lives in the great lakes (fresh water).
In real light winds, she tends to sluggishly pivot and will tend to stay at a wind angle. I was thinking of spraying a touch of MacLube or... Up into the housing but I'm concerned that it might leave a residue on sensitive electrical contacts. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

T-9 seems to leave a non-conductive coating and I'm concerned that any coating might inhibit electrical contacts. Does anyone know what the factory recommends?

btw, sorry for the cross post with FixIt Anarchy. Seems that I should have posted this question here in the first place...

I would not use T9 as it leaves a sticky residue; it's designed as a protective coating, not a lubricant.

Thanks TomTriad, that info is helpful as I haven't used T9 anywhere yet.
