CJs original two part CTC Cycle Touring and Campaigning magazine articles on lube where in the August/September  1992 (starts page 38) and October/November 1992 (starts  page 36):

I have them in my folder of such detailed and trustworthy CTC technical articles: a unique  benefit of the then CTC that has now been removed.

I could scan them and PM if you want?

Thread revival. Changing a bottom bracket, new experience for me. I have a tub of the default garage grease, but as I need to grease the BB with an 'anti seize' grease, according to the interweb/YouTube guides, would copper grease be better?

Copper grease is better than ordinary grease for BBs, but sometimes you might want to use threadlocker (Loctite) instead, sometimes just for the left side.  I've used threadlocker to prevent further tightening rather than loosening - which is not normally necessary but helps when there's some misalignment causing the cartridge bearings to bind as a side effect of the cups being very tight.

I popped out at lunchtime and bought a small toothpaste sized tube of copper grease.

Cheers, Dave C

Perhaps we need a YACF archive library for storing such useful stuff?

That would be very appreciated, if it's possible, and if someone is willing to do the work.

You could try this: http://wikisend.com

I believe it expires after a week, but that’s okay. No need to create an account or log in or anything.
