Glen has a good tip. By the way, when I said silicone lube, I was 
referring to a heavy silicone paste used for valve stems in hydraulic 
service. Similar stuff is available for disk brake calipers.

Don't use the "dielectric" grease that they sell for spark plug leads 
and electrical connectors, I'm told it is not the same stuff, even 
though it looks identical.

But then they could just be trying to sell you two tubes, the dirty buggers.
