Most of the lubricants noted in the excerpt from the Service Manual can be difficult to find.
Here are the modern day "conversions" that you can use:
Renotac No. 342 Adhesive Oil      
     Use Automotive Synthetic Motor Oil 10W-30W
BP Super Viscostatic 10W/30  
      Use Automotive Synthetic Motor Oil 10W-30W  
Shell Alvania No. 2
      Use any White Lithium Based Grease with the consistency of Vaseline, but don't use Vaseline.
Isoflex PDP 40
      Use Automotive Synthetic Motor Oil 10W-30W
Silicone Oil AK 500 000
    Go to a hobby shop that sells Model Electric Trains or Slot Cars, ask them for Silicone Oil
     500,000 Weight.  They should stock it.
Molykote
    Use any White Lithium Based Grease with the consistency of Vaseline, but don't use Vaseline.
You must clean off all the old lubricants before applying the new!  Cotton Swabs and isopropyl
   alcohol do a good job for this task.

Remember to use these lubricants sparingly, a little goes a long way!
