Shell Retinax LX grease substitute

What's a substitute for the Shell Retinax LX grease as indicated in the overhaul manual for the 4.0 v8 front oil seal?

I suppose I'm tempting fate by just slathering some old red valvoline sticky grease in there.

I came across that .pdf already. I was hoping there was something from vatozone or someone nearby? High temp is a requirement it seems.
