lubing roller guides

Could I please have some advice on what lube to service the aftco roller guides with? Some say, dismantle the rollers, then smear a bit of synthetic engine oil on the bushings.

What works? Appreciate any advise. Thanks

I use any old high temp grease that I happen to have on hand. Oil is too loose.

Oil will work fine but only for one trip. Light grease is better. I've had my best luck with super lube which contains teflon and does not seem to wash off very easy. I get a really full season out of one servicing.
