Do not user teflon grease yikes, Furlex has open bearings you need to use a waterproof grease. Their manuals are excellent, be sure to use it. The Furlex gear is excellent and expensive, you should pay the extra buck or two to get the right grease:

Selden Mast (Furlex) 312-501 LUBRICATING GREASE (TUBE 90 G) Ships Store Torresen

The300s model doesn't require any disassembly to grease.d

Certified...in several regards...
