Lots of debate on the proper lube for speedo cables.
I'd look in the service manual first. Then period Motors or similar auto manuals for documentation.
If it has an "oiler" and "felt wick" it's correct to suspect oil is proper as the speedoman sed.

I know the Cads don't recommend graphite, gets up in the "clock" and they used to sell a GM cable luber, I had one, that had white lithium grease in it. But that was later vintage well after Packard. Other's swear by graphite, so choose accordingly.
Petrified grommets are pretty common. I'd replace, as you want to seal out the engine vapors. CO is a silent killer.
