Yes, more lube will help. For a slide hammer, do this. Get some 3/16" rod, long enough to get to the front part of the baffle, and bend the end into a hook. Slide the rod in and hook it in. Using your largest vice-grips, lock onto the rod, back far enough that you can use a hammer right close to the potion where the vice-grips are clamped to the rod. Being anything but gentle, give it a good whack, and look for progress. Presto, home made slide hammer substitute. I used the heaviest oxy-acetylene filler rod I had. Did the trick for me.

Just a note ... too much oil in the packing will require new packing material. Oil will cause the packing to mat and compress. Takes the fluffy out of it.
