I used a good high quality synthetic grease (Amsoil type 2) on the crank mechanism and where the arm goes into the window bottom channel for my 26 Tudor. The stuff seems to never harden and sticks really well. Any similar grease such as Lucas should serve you well.

The best lubricant I've found for auto window risers, slides, hinges, rollers and etc is white lithium grease available in spray form or non-hardening lube.
It doesn't harden and is water proof. It hardly changes consistency in different temperature ranges either. You can get it in squeeze tube form at Ace Hardware and most auto supply houses.

Probably similar, white Lubriplate was spec'd for those items in my '48 Packard, when I got inside the doors and window risers parts were in good shape and the grease was still in place.

One more thing about lubing door risers, gears, rollers and etc is to get the surfaces CLEAN. After working as a maintenance mechanic for many years at a state college on lots of equipment that has lots of the above giving the surfaces a good cleaning with a degreaser and wiping the surfaces clean is a big part of the job BEFORE you apply the lubricant. It really does help to make the parts work as good as new. After years of greasing the surfaces get gunked up from dirt and etc.
