    Not exactly a motor question. But, I figure the motor is connected to the boat and the boat is on the trailer so here goes. LOL! Want to replace the connector plugs for my harness. What is a good conductive lubricant. THANX!

    We use a grease like lubricant called "no-ox" at work on all our power connections. It prevents oxidation and I use it on my marine battery terminals. Might be able to find some at a electrical supply store somewhere, if not, I can send you a container.

    Stuff come under many names.
    One of the popular widely carried brands is Noalox by Ideal brand.
    You can find these products at Lowes and Home Depot in the electrical department.

    Just dont get it on your clothes.

    You should be able to pick up a tube of dielectric grease at about any auto parts store, I know NAPA carries it.

    Yep, Noalox is what we use at work (Municipal Utility Co). We use it in meter sockets and everywhere else. Many overhead electrical connectors come with basically the same thing already squirted inside of them. If its good enough for the power company, its gotta be pretty good.
