Gee Clipper, when I read "helicopter spray service", I automatically imagined 2 of these mounted to your Bell.Back in the 80's, I had a helicopter spray service, operated a Bell G3B1, the mech that I hired bought a can of Shell grease for fittings on the chopper, I sold the helo, kept the grease. Just a tiny bit on a Qtip keeps my guns moving...I can bequeath the can to some grandsons, probably still in use in the 2200's...
Sorry, we only shot at bollworms in the local cotton patches in those days. Back in my Navy days, I did manage to shoot a LOT of 20mm..the AD had 4 and the A4 had two...mud-movers for sure. We had to qualify in strafe, but they only loaded 5o rounds per bun (then only the inboard two) so with 100 rounds, needed to have 20 hits on the counter target to qualify....but...by a little circuit breaker management, you could fire only one gun...and shoot short...into the gravel in front of the counter target...gravel also made the counter target count as a hit...that is how I managed to get 120 hits with 100 rounds...lots of passes at the target, short bursts. Yeah, I cheated..
That Lucas Gun Oil is the best I have seen.High pressure red colored grease used for gas engine pre assembly. It can be bought at most auto parts store. Lucas Oil brand is real good. It’s gooey and sticky so it won’t fling off. I actually used it first as Shooters Choice, but found out what was in the tube, so I went to a auto parts store and bought a tub of the Lucas grease and just refill the syringe.
Another is any grease that has PTFE in it. Can’t recommend any brand but I’ve use in auto pistols with good results, although I do prefer the red grease. I use these greases on the reciprocal parts such as slides on auto pistols and bolt lugs in rifles.
Lucas, Extreme Duty, Gun Oil I use for lubing springs and pins in guns because it will penetrate the spring coil and pins but not fling off or dry up do to gun powder residue. It is also one of the best lubricant for the bolt carrier in an AR15.
For triggers like in an AR15 or auto pistol I use Chip McCormik, Trigger Job. It’s a grease with molybdenum disulfide in it. This will reduce trigger pull and in some cases smooth trigger creep. I have done test with several hand guns were in the case of my little Walther P22, it reduced trigger pull by 5 oz. and made the trigger pull weight consistent +/- an 1 oz. Amazing stuff. Plus that it’s like Brill Cream, a little dab will do you.
