Smack dab in the middle of USA - Eastern Nebraska

 Huh? Opened up my first spinning reel that had been lubed with anti-seize.  Shocked

That stuff is kind of messy Roll Eyes  and slick, and I had already scraped a bunch out before I took these photos.  Roll Eyes

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

   The irony is...everything coated in that goop is probably shiny and new. I had one once completely full of that white high temp stuff...what a job! Put an old t-shirt on Tommy and dive in! Cool

Wow!

Is lacquer thinner able to cut that stuff, Tommy?  Or do you need something stronger?

Can't wait to see the stellar result when you are done with it.

Best,

It's not really a lubricant, but it does prevent corrosion from getting on the coated parts & threaded holes.       Rudy

That stuff is hard to clean up. Years ago my buddy and I were working on his boat trailer and his son, who was about 4, was being a pain "helping" us, so my buddy puts him in the boat to play so he doesn't run around and get in the way. He forgot that he had an open can of "never seize" with the paint brush in it. Well my buddy checks on his kid and yells out holly #$$^^$^, so I look up and he has "painted" the seats, his new jacket, his hands and parts of the boat with the never seize ......................... what a mess and it does not easily clean off of surfaces and never comes out of clothing. Angry

ARR Ha, they light grey stuff, works great but to just remove it from you hands it bad enough, cheers Don.

It cleaned up pretty easily. I scraped as much out as I could with my little straight screwdriver, wiped off as much of what was left as I could with a rag and did my normal cleaning process with the lacquer thinner soak, Original White Goop and warm water Dawn wash. Everything turned out great! I did, though, have to scrape a couple of corners where the brush bristles missed a little residue.

I didn't do a full tutorial because it's an ABU Cardinal 40 and I already did one on the Cardinal 70. They're exactly the same except different sizes. Here's the results.

All the parts cleaned.


The body cleaned up nicely.


As did the rest of the innards.


All back together and looking good.  Smiley
