What type of grease or lubricant do you use for parts like the manual tilt lever and such? Mine started sticking a bit and I noticed a little rust on the part.

For exposed parts West Marine has a Rattle can Spray that seems pretty good ...

Any marine grease is better than no grease,
and your owner's manual has an entire list
of what to lube and how often.
It even has a recommended lube schedule.
Which, I've noticed most folks don't follow.
Usually, lubrication doesn't get done until something sticks.
Then they're stuck with solving a problem,
which would have been easier to prevent.

Think about it...
When was the last time you lubed your outboard?

Thank you Matt and all. I used the trailer bearing grease I had. I forgot it was an all purpose grease. It worked like a charm. without sounding perverted, I wonder what else I should be greasing on the outboard?
