I have used it to disperse water in an old distributor cap on one my older cars. I was mud/water riding and splashed water up on the motor and it drowned out the motor. I put WD 40 in the cap , wiped it out and I was on my way again. Steve since I don't fish I would not that it is good for fishing. Does the fish like the smell or the taste :laugh: :laugh: :approve:
i use slideout lube on my steps ,, and of course the hammer when they don't want to move ,, but it has been a long time since they didn't move ,, prolly should have not said that ,, i prolly just jinxed myself :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
Grandview Trailer Sa - 3/11/2011 11:52 AM Triple E, Sorry but again the WD means Water Dispersing. It is the 40th formula that the inventor tried. It is actually good to use with elec. items as it disperses water. Now, I would not spray it into a "HOT" fixture but it is good at getting rid of the water.
No Ken I amnot wrong. You will not find an electrical or instrumentation shop using WD-40, period. If you want to use a "water dispersing" use CRC. I have never disagreedwith youbefore but on this one I must,
My first day on the job in the power plant I was told that WD stood for "What Dummie".
"The long-term active ingredient is a non-volatile, viscous oil which remains on the surface, providing lubrication and protection from moisture. This is diluted with a volatile hydrocarbon to give a low viscosity fluid which can be sprayed and thus penetrate crevices. The volatile hydrocarbon then evaporates, leaving the oil behind."
Oil is conductive, flammable and collects dirt. No not use on electrical components. I am not saying that it does not disperse water I am saying do not use on electrical components.
Hollis, don't know why it works good for fishing. But the worms do float better. :laugh: :laugh:
