    WD-40 will not be the long term fix.

    I will be using anti-seize as noted in the service manual. I already have some because I bought a tube for the combustion air fan set screw on my pellet stove among other things.

    Good call on the anti-seize for the long term, but even for the short term a lubricating oil will do a much better job at keeping the thing sliding. WD - 24 hr fix. Lube - 2 month fix.
