I'm uncertain what replaces it - switch cleaner? - since blasting grit
out of a timer that has sat behind an engine burning 20:80 oil:methanol
needs WD-40's penetrating oil properties but without the dried-on, sticky
water-repelling coat it leaves behind.





Try Kroil. That is often hard to come by. Maybe PB Blaster will work.

Even some home brew mix of Ed's Red.


Just my 2 cents, but I think PB Blaster is an excellent product for
loosening bolts and other automotive uses. Much better than WD40. I have
never used Kroil. Mostly cuz I never see it sold anywhere in auto parts
stores. But I heard it's good......

What is "Ed's Red"?

Kroil is sold on line. I use it because it works.

A home brew mess for cleaning guns.

Watching a video or two, Liquid Wrench came out on top for nuts and bolts.

Yeah, "I saw it on youtube (or facebook)."

That's laughable, Liquid Wrench is better than WD-40, but
PB-Blaster is better than Liquid Wrench, and Kroil is
better than PB-Blaster.

That's just the way it is.
