i really do not know if you could or not but if it was mine i would get a very fine wire wheel clean the threads then use a non conductive grease that i would polish the shaft with that way no debris would accumulate on those threads. i hope this helps

Clean up the threads. You don't want grease on the shunt it will be a dirt and grit collector.
