I have sprayed the cable with Boeshield just near the handle so the entire cable is not getting the lube.
How difficult is it to get to the tank valve to replace the cable? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I had seen a post on another forum a few years back of someone with the same problem and he did the following.
Remove the "T" handle, use 3/8 ID clear plastic tubing over the stem of the handle to fit snug on the threaded section of the cable. Prop up the open end of the tubing and fill with a light weight oil such as 3 in 1 oil and let gravity take over.
I have never tried this so I can't say if it works or not.
