    Rebuilding my wiper system. Manual says to lubricate cam and spring with Mopar 2275437 or equivalent lubricant containing powdered lead?????
    I have used powdered graphite, but haven’t heard of powdered lead. Can I use powdered graphite? Does it gum up when wet? Pics of the original powdered lead on the cam.

    I've run across that Mopar lube somewhere along the line and it's just a grease with lead powder in it. I doubt if anything is made like that anymore, but a good grease with moly should do just as well.

    The powder you see on your parts.... I don't that's lead powder. I think that's the metal that's been ground off the parts from wear.

    The wear was my initial thought, but when I saw lead powder, I thought maybe it was something like powered graphite as it had that feel.

    Just give it a dab of bearing grease. Any bearing grease.

    I like the powered lead because it has a nice, sweet taste. Practically candy.

    Ok. Thanks all for the advice......I think. I used Lubriplate NO. 630-AA Grease. Had to make some felt washers for the connector link as they had long since disappeared. I wish I could have taken the swivels apart and re-greased but looke like I would do more damage taking them apart.
