What lubrication should be used on the rollers? I am replacing one of my rollers and shaft because it is worn out, but the other roller and idler are still in good shape but need to be lubricated. What are your recommendations for lubrication? Does it need to be a high temp grease?

Normally you do not need any lubricant on the roller shafts.

Because of their low RPM, rollers normally don't need oiling, but sometimes contamination gets on them. I would just clean the bearing surfaces with WD-40. The idler pulley should be lubricated with 10 weight ,NON-detergent oil
