Windscreen wiper gearbox grease

I am about to re-assemble the gearboxes for my XK-120 windscreen wipers. The service manual recommends zinc oxide grease for the gearboxes and Duckhams H.B.B. or it’s equivalent for the cable. What would the modern-day equivalents to these be?

Ordinary chassis grease is fine for this light load.
Funny this same topic came up just last week.

Thanks. i searched for the topic but must have had the wrong search terms to pick this up.
