PAC brake makes a high temp lube, I’m sure there’s another equivalent available or maybe you can special order it from a Canadian supplier. They say to squirt all the linkages, then remove the air fitting, then squirt some in the cylinder.

Here’s their dealer locator. I typed in Montreal and 100 km radius and 4 dealers showed up so they are in Canada. Give it a try.

The owners manual for mine says to use silicone spray on all the linkages.

I use the PacBrake high temp lube. It's hard to see if the butterfly valve is working freely when hooked up so the last time I took the cylinder completely out, lubed all the points and worked the butterfly valve multiple times to make sure it was free.

Recently I removed our frozen pacbrake. All the pivot points were completely rusted and would not move. Had to soak it in ATF and break things loose with a hammer and vise grips. Polished everything up, put it back together and lubed all points with Permatex anti-seize. The reason for using permatex is the useful temperature range. Permatex anti-seize is good to 1600 degrees F. From what I was able to find out about the Pacbrake super lube, it is only good to about 500 degrees F. Good luck with your project.
God is good, the rest doesn't matter!

pac brake lube

I saw a video where they used Tri-Flo to use on linkage, inside the cylinder, and moving parts. I buy it at some select parts stores, but you can also get it from Amazon...Go figure
