Jib forestay / Mouse Assembly


Can anyone tell me why the jib forestay needs to be greased?  I took my forestay down to rebuild the electric motor and now I'm ready to put it back up.  Rigger and I curious why greasing the forestay is needed.

Also, Does anyone have a picture and nomenclature of the jib mouse assembly.   I do not have one and would to acquire for flying both jibs downwind.

I searched the forum but have not found anything substantive.
