CRC product which is graphite based. Believe it or not it is
designed for brake calipers. The greese is very thin and when dry
or washed out it leaves a graphite film on the rudder shaft. Only a
couple of bucks at the local auto parts store. Be careful this
stuff is messy and seems to get everywhere if you dont remember that
more is not better.
