thanks to all.
as far as lithium goes. i still dont know nothing.
i got the speedo lube yesterday and put it on. i havent driven the car yet tho. it appeared to be a very light oil, petrolium based, just packed to the gills with graphite. it turned my hands black and they are still black. i would still like to know about whether the lithium will work on it, JUST BECAUSE, now.
