Default 47 V8 distributor rebuild

I am rebuilding a 47 distributor and need to know what serfaces and bearings to lube and what type of lube to use. Should the grease be high temp and what type. Also should the vaccuum brake piston be lubed? I have searched various repair manuals and most are not spacific. Thanks.
