Default Best lubricant for Taylor-Dunn EM master control switch?

Well, its been awhile, but I am happy to say that my cart is up and running, at times. Will get some restoration process images up ASAP.

Currently I am rebuilding the master control switch, and could not find anything that reliably said what type of grease/lubricant would be best for the contacts and whole assembly. Was thinking high temperature grease, but then started second guessing that, so thought it best to ask.

Any suggestions?

Synthetic grease or dielectric grease would be fine. If you need High temp you got a problem already, lol. The contacts in a rotary F&R should not exceed 140 degrees in my experience.

Scotty,

Appreciate the suggestion.

This brought up another, unforeseen issue: I can find no form of synthetic (or dielectric) grease locally. This seems ludicrous, but after searching online, phone calls, and 3 or 4 trips to a store, it seems to be the case.

So... since I had the high-temp grease on hand, I went ahead with it. The synthetic/dielectric you suggested would be preferred, but will there be any problem with the high-temp I've used? Just thought I'd ask.

Ray~
