OK, took a look at the bottle of stuff I use.
Permatex Ultra Slick, got it at the auto parts store.
Never use on cylinders or rings, but feel free everywhere else.
I don't use it on transmissions either, it's extremely viscous and sticky, it can cause the tranny to be really stiff for a while, maybe not shift right - especially if it's cold (like my workspace generally is).
