    I always grease mine after I had one freeze up on me. The cable is stainless but inside the housing is not.

    So I got the steering all installed and tightened the cables snug ,released the timing plug /bolt and had some play in the steering reinserted the timing plug and again tightened the cables some more, they were a tad loose ,worked the steering back and fourth numerous times and had the cables again loosen up so put the plug back in and re-tighten the cables to a snug tension like my kids calgo tension on his boat ,worked the steering again back and fourth numerous times and cables are good but it feels like cable friction in the housing and everything is generously lubed is this because its new and needs some break in time, The cables are not over tightened and I do know they will have some cable stretch in the near future,Any thoughts on this
