Dura Ace rear der pulley wheel lube. . . . .Monte

grease or oil? It's old, like '85. It seems to have a hard plastic(?) inner sleeve inside a hard plastic(?) bushing. Both are white. The bushing has 4 slots on the inside. The upper wheel is steel or aluminum, the lower is plastic. I've managed to make the stuff last this long by not riding the bike. It's time to ride the bike (Davidson Cycles) and I don't want to toast parts.

Thanks,
Monte

Usual rules:

Bearings=grease
Bushings=oil
Chain=oil
Pawls=oil
In other words: only the balls get greased...
