Anybody use a cable luber?

I was wondering if anyone is using a cable lubrication tool for the clutch cable. If so, what brands do you recommend?

I've got a slight drag on the cable on the clutch return. The cable is only a few years old so I know it's not worn out. New clutch helper spring in the clutch pedal cluster, as well.

I've seen cable lubers at a motorcycle shop. Not sure if it will fit our clutch cable.

I have used them before , not on our clutch cable though. If I had it at the shop when I replaced my cable I probably would have tried it . I am not sure what brand it is but they all seem the same. Make sure to wrap the end of the cable at the top where you are spraying and hold it tight or you will end up with an eye full.

Make yourself one with a peice of hose and a clamp to fit the cable with a peice of pipe on it with a cap you can unscrew and fill with PB BLASTER and re install the cap and have a schrader valve threaded into the cap and hit it with compressed air and it will force the penetrating oil all the way to the other end . Make sure you have a way of catching the oil coming from the loose end. We do this all the time on boat steering cables w/good sucess.
