When I suggested Krytox, I wasn't aware that the parts in question were in an oil bath. I wouldn't have suggesting using Krytox in that situation.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
