Campy Ergo Shifter Grease?

What grease should I use when rebuilding campy ergo shifters (centaur 10s).
I assume the original grease is a campagnolo product but was wondering if I
could substitute something on hand or more common such as pedros syn grease.
Thanx in advance.

<snip q: re ergo grease>

Don't know whether this is appropriate/recommended but I use lithium
grease. Seems to work fine. I have also used bearing grease (Park
polylube) and that works fine too, again, don't know whether it is
appropriate/recommended.

BTW, just wondering: what has been your experience with doing these
rebuilds? My initial attempt took about an hour and a half 'cuz I had
to do it twice (made a mistake which I discovered after all done) and
now it is about 15-20 minutes per, after doing it five times (two old
pointy rebuilds for my brother, three for me due to crashes).

Remember that grease is oil in 'soap' and use any grease...Also take
the front apart and clean/grease the front bushing as well...

I use Miche-lithium, available from us and very Campagnolo-esque...also
use Pedros since it is hooked to my grease gun tip...
