Hi folks,

I'm picking my way through an LA30 restoration right now.  It was pretty 
filthy, so I've needed to pretty thoroughly disassemble it for proper 

I noticed that a few of the thin steel ribbon springs in the paper path 
are missing or broken on my unit, and some of the rubber bushings have 
hardened and deteriorated.  Long shot ask, but wondering if anybody out 
there has spares of:

     74-08648   (Spring, paper drag)
     12-10357-3 (Bushing, rubber mount)
     12-10358-3 (Ring, rubber mount)

Also, the maintenance manual recommends Molykote B2KR for lubrication in 
a few places, but I can't seem to find specs on what this was.  Can 
anybody recommend an equivalent modern alternative grease?
