window guide rollers

I hope this is the right forum for this.

I bought some replacement 1/4 window guide rollers for my '66 Skylark but the shafts are so tight in the rollers that they don't roll. Are they supposed to or do they just slide through the channels? The old ones roll but they are so worn out and floppy that the windows dropped down about a 1/2 inch at the front and wouldn't line up.

Thanks for any help
Mike

It's more of a guide than a roller. Put some light grease on it and it will work just fine.

'nuther question

When you say light grease what do you mean? When I took it apart everything had lithium grease on it and it was all hard. Is this still the best choice?

Also, do you know what grease to use to pack in around the drive gear on a power window motor?

Thanks

White lithium grease is what I use.
