STI Shifter Grease

When I've taken a look at the internals on Shimano STI shifters, the lubricant looked like synthetic Super Lube grease, a opaque white/clear. It does not need much.

I'm certain it is a freewheel (possibly an Atom or Regina) and not a cassette. Have you checked the SA hub date? Finally, IIRC, a '61 Varsity was an eight-speed with a four-speed freewheel.
