Andrew:

 

Mine is different, the cap is replaced by one with a long, slender metal tube 
that has a tiny cap on top:

 The one pictured in your ad will work just as well. However, I would not use 
the attached brush directly on dirty contacts, as it will introduce 
contaminants into the bottle. The compound appears to be the same as what I 
use. I see an ad above this listing for $15.25 as opposed to the $21.09 in this 
ad. That seems reasonable enough.

Greg is this the stuff?   If so, is that a good price?

Thanks, Greg.  The dropper bottle might be the way to go for my tach rather 
than the spray can,

I have used several different packagings of Deoxit. Deoxit has several
different compounds too. I am talking about the red stuff. My experience
with the spray is that the spray fails when only a small portion of the
contents were gone. My technique when the contacts are accessible is to use
the dropper container and q-tips. I saturate the head of a q-tip with the
liquid, then rub the contact to remove the oxidation. If the female contact
can't be cleaned this way I make and break the contacts several times with a
bit of the liquid on the male contact. This has worked well for me.

Subject: [MBZ] Deoxit question

The tach in my 1983 300TD runs only briefly after I fiddle with it
(stuffing something under the retaining collar to tighten the contacts).
I'm thinking it's either the gauge in the instrument cluster  or  slightly
corroded pins in the sending unit.  Easiest option would be to apply Deoxit
which I don't currently own.

Question:  Which type of DeOxit should I purchase that suits this
application?  Is it OK to spray into the femaie housing or just onto the
male pin assembly?  There are several types on ebay:

<http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=deoxit&_sop=1> 
&_sacat=0&_nkw=deoxit&_sop=1

TIA,
