    I don't have an answer for you except to suggest you contact a local Westerbastard dealer and ask them. Before you get in a huff over what I called it, I have one two and am calling it that as a joke. I love my Westerbastard!

    I believe the manual calls for graphite on the moving parts like the linkages.

    THANK you I stopped by western branch Thursday to buy a new carburetor choke solenoid . I asked the same question and got answers from parts person and a service tech that came in his answer was use a small amount of anti seize compound with graphite in it or diolect compound . But I thought I'd ask other people and what they came with HE was young man so I just wanted other opinions .thanks again
