Replacing the stator on my 2007 Classic (16,500 miles) and can't find ant dielectric grease for the regulator.
What can I use instead?
I have heard here that I may use petroleum jelly.
What do you think?

You can find it in the electrical department of the some of the big box home improvement stores or in some electrical sections of hardware stores.

I bought mine at my local NAPA store but most any auto parts supplier should have it. I don't think I would use anything else as a replacement since the wrong product can cause the very problems you are trying to prevent.

You should be able to find it at most hardware stores and all auto parts stores. Here is what I have used for the last 9 years:

Don't use PJ. Any Cat dealer sells it under PN#8T-9020.

The closest snow plow dealer is about 9,000 miles away since I am in the Philippines!!
I don't know if this will help but lately I have been using Permatex Dielectric Tune-Up Grease(Grasa Dielectrica Para Afinar)item #22058. I think CRC offers Dielectric grease as well but I don't have any handy to give you a part #. Both are in most auto parts stores state side. Unless you are a manufacturer remember this stuff is like anti seize, 3 ounces is a life time supply.

If you can't find these I have always had good luck with white lithium grease in the spray can. Again a standard spray can is a life time supply for most people so blow the little red straw clean after each use.

Most non fiber greases will work. The good thing about the white lithium is you can spray a foamy goo into a connector that will set up and stay put, unlike Vaseline that will melt In high heat and humidity and run all over everything. You would be better off using WD-40. At least it's easier to clean up.
