I say just use a light weight oil over some of that other stuff because what ever you use is going to end up in the tranny. But that's just my 2¢.
I've been using 3-in-one oil for over forty years now on all types of cables . It's worked well so far.Thanks all. Guess I overlooked the sticky. Looks interesting. I was looking for the type of lubricant to use....didn't think of the method of application. I sell industrial chemicals, which include lubricants, so I have lots of resources.
