C33 Cable Lube

my boat has 3 C33 Morse cables, one broke, one sticky and one apparently OK. Got replacements for the first two ordered and should arrive this week. Dock gossip suggested the sticky one could be fixed with Marvel Mystery Oil being forced into the cable housing, thought this was possible temp fix but just ordered new, no fuss and no mess.

The question is simply is there any maintenance required for these cables?

thanks for your thoughts
Mike

In a previous life, I had dirt bikes. Living where I do, I found sailing to be a much dryer if not cleaner sport. I've not had need to use it on Sojourn, and I've never seen it in a boat store, but this Amazon.com: Tusk Cable Lube Kit: Automotive, worked very well.

Cables came in today. Clerly stated in packaging "Do Not Oil"

It seems just keeping the exposed ends cleans is all that is required.
