    Lube used in rebuilding Imperial 600 and 800 series manifolds

    I'm hoping someone knows the answer to one of life's most important questions: what lube/grease is used on the diaphragms of the Imperial 800 & 600 series manifolds? I have to cannibalize some to make 1 good one. Not a happy camper!

    It "might" be what Yellow Jacket suggests in their manifold rebuild video which they sell in small amounts and is DOW CORNING MOLYKOTE 55 O-Ring Silicone Grease.

    I use dielectric grease- same as silicon and doesn't hurt rubber or plastics.

    The correct lubricant is Dow Corning 111 Silicone Compound Lubricant & Sealant. Imperial Tools sells rebuild kits that are very inexpensive.
