I  have a RI-40 ribbon  style (3/8"  x .082"  silver  plated)  roller  coil....with  no  lube on  it.    Can  I  use  permatex  dielectric  grease  on  it ?
My  RI-50 roller  coil  came  with  what  appears to be  green  coloured   grease on  it. 

Both  rollers  have the  ribbon  pinched  with a pair of  gold  plated  contacts,  2  per  side.   Coil  is  fixed.   Contacts  spiral  around  the inside.

SSON  no  longer  sells  either  version.   I  bought the  RI-50  new,  years  ago.  The  RI-40 was obtained  used.
