    I just received the Kodak service manual for this camera and it says to use type 7101 grease to lubricate the focusing assembly after cleaning it. Any idea what kind of grease it is/was and what modern equivalent should I be using?.

    I would think a non migratory lithium grease. Note not all "lithium" greases are non-migratory. I once got hold of some white lithium grease that traveled worse than a gaggle of geese.
