not an aresol, and I've use that for similar applications. It was a nice
product, still have half the can.

The fan in my 547 was running slow and taking a long time to run up to

available ranging from 3-in-1 to heavy EP90.
Do you think synthetic motor oil is as good as Kano Microil non gumming
instrument oil? I'm getting low on that oil.
