Grey water + sewer valves

My grey water was getting hard to pull so I thought I would take it apart and lube it up. Well to get one off you have to pull both so anyway once I had them apart I couldn't see anything wrong but I had new seals so I thought I would put them in. Fine no leaks but now the grey valve is even harder to pull, I loosened the bolts up on it but still hard not leaking but seems like it is binding on rubber seals. Any secret to this stuff I will probably take it apart again tomorrow.

Home Depot or a hardware store carry Plumber's Grease. A clear "paste" type lube that will stay on the seals. The four bolts that hold the valve together need to have approx the same torque and not over-tightened.
Hope you can find the cause of the sticking.
