One of the guys here turned me on to a fantastic productitsan industrial lube called Castle Endura. It sprays on wet like WD40 and once it hits the air it gets thick and tacky. Great for hard to reack areas like those mechanisms.

I usually try and avoid most of the greases, esp white lithium,as they "cake" with age, I use cam moly lube on the rollers/regs, and dry graphite spray on all the slides... after a through cleaning/repair/replacement of all the reciprocating window mechanisms

Yeah, appears that someone used lithium at one time. All caked up.

I use Super Lube. Doesn't cake up, rinse off or have an issue with temperature.

I just happened upon "Fifth Wheel Grease" in the tube once, and been using it ever since. It's great. Very silky, doesn't need heat, and won't harden in winter. VERY silky.

Don't we want to just lubricate the axle of the wheel so it spins nicely in the track. If the entire assembly is lathered up the wheel will just slide in the track instead of rolling. Possibly just overthinking this.
