Default Lubrication of SONY KSS optical pick up with metal and plastic muff

Two kinds of muffs - plastic and metal are used in KSS laser units (SONY and replacements). What kinds of lubricants are proper in both cases?

Everyone will have their favourites. I always use this which is specially for any combination of plastic/metal. Great on the notorious CDM12xxxx assemblies too.

I trie both silicone grease and silicone oil, and both caused more damage than any good. I think the "muff" is a sintered brass, that soaks oil like any sintered sliding bearing, i.e. self-lubricating. I found the best is to clean the steel slidings with paper tissue and not lubricating it.
