    Someone was looking for a conductive electrical grease. I found it.
    Its GB Ox-gard.
    It is a grease like dielectric (sp?) but this stuff improves conductivity,guards against oxidation and produces a cooler connection.

    I've used it before, no complaints. Came highly recommended from an electrician friend who drives a BJ 42 and an FJ 62. There are a number of different brand names, Penetrox, Ox-gard, Permox to name a few. It seems to be more effective than dielectric especially in high heat areas. Cheers, Greg.

    For a non-conductive grease better than dielectric try;
    NYK Corrosive Preventiive Compound
    NYK-77 is for places that you don't want a short like the trailer harness plug.
    It is thicker than dielectric grease. Can be had at KW dealer or heavy duty truck part stores.

    would that be the junk to put onto the rotor and distributer to protect from water splashes?

    Autozone (and I'm sure the others as well) sells bulb grease - is this the same thing? Conductive, non-corrosive. If so, you can get a small packet for 50 cents next to the register. They have larger containers as well. I've used it on a stubborn/loose turn-signal flasher socket. 2 years later - no problema.
