I like a guy who uses his head !!! I really like that idea, AND, it might work well on other components, as well. Robbie

I sort of have a problem with lubrication of the Pac brake. If anyone has had one apart you will see that the bottom of the shaft sits in a well. I don't see how the lube can get down into there. I had to take mine apart and I used a valve grinding compound and cleaned out the well using the butterfly shaft and lapped it in. I then took a mixture of Pac brake lube and high temp anti sieze and put it in the well and then put the shaft in and re assembled the unit. After 5 years it is still working. In your manual it states that you have to have the engine up to temp before shutting down to avoid rust in the pac brake. It gets in there and rusts solid. Mine will not now.

Not familiar with Jet Hot coating. Can you explain and where can it be applied? Sounds like a worthwhile project.
