I'm carrying out the restoration steps on my 75 "barn find" as per instructions posted on this thread by StraightWings in 2006. Her refers to using EZ Lube spray. I can't find the spray at my auto parts store. Is WD-40 an acceptable alternative? If not, what do we have equivalent in the U.S.?

I guess that depends on what you need it for. If for penetrant PB blaster is as good as anything I have used.

StrightWings instructions are to use it to lube external gaskets and seals, and into the cylinders, then turning over the engine by hand multiple times over a week, prior to trying to start it. The purpose is to lube as much as clean. I used PB Blaster to clean the carbs, did a good job. I don't know if it would be too corrosive for the cylinder walls. What do you think?

Don't know of any external gaskets and don't know what good it would do to lube external seals but any light oil, PB included should do.

WD-40 has a relatively new product, it contains White Lithium grease in it.
works great for squeaking car doors.
