In the old days, we used to get the official Arri lubricants from Arri. From the previous discussion here, I remember it being said that they came from Klueber Lubricants in Munich. I haven't found the previous thread, but I did find my Google Earth placemark for Klueber, on Geisenhausenerstrasse: 48.0982 N, 11.5191 E will get you into their parking lot.

But perhaps their web site will be more helpful:

The grease is Isoflex LDS 18/05, still available from Arri (I just bought some). I believe it is indeed made by Klueber.

The oil is Arri's heavy oil, which is Chronosynth 1/8. Golden yellow, heavier than PDB-38 which is used on some later cameras. Not sure who manufactures it, but Arri probably still supplies it.

I'm sure if you called some rental houses that have been around for a while the service departments might have a little to spare if you offered them a beer in exchange.. (my preferred currency) ;)
