Thanks for your reply!
Apparently much of the motion is rotational and on the horizontal plane but with elevation changes due to following the cam profile. And the cam isn't clearly shown. Just the pads, evidently soaked in silicone lube of unspecified viscosity.
And this gets to the subject of the original post. Sorry if I've veered off topic a little.
You might check in with the webmaster at Turntable Basics. That site does supply a variety of silicone oils that serve as lift damper fluids. I suspect the site owner may have some knowledge to dispense on the subject.
Link to the site at page bottom. I'd contact the site owner via his contact email noted at the site and ask directly.
In my experience with damping....there is one magic spot that might be advantageous.....otherwise it destroys the whole sonic picture.

This has been affirmed by many in the instance when we are talking about tonearm damping. Here, in this thread, the op just wants to renew the damping action on his lift mechanism. I'm confident this won't have anything to do with sound. Just function.
