I'm sure David didn't mean 'oil it and now and it will go', but I'll just clarify, having looked at a blown up pic of this I would recommend you do not add oil and run this. It has a horrible amount of dust/grime in the pivot holes and despite it having very hard pivots, you will cause undue wear. Sorry David, no intention of being contrary old chap, just clarifying.As others have said it needs a good clean (it should have a high polish) but often there is not a lot of wear if you are lucky. Give it a proper re oil and it will go well.
We're singing from the same hymn sheetThanks shimmy, I definitely didn't mean just oil it and let it go. That would be like running the piviots in some kind of cutting solution! I only meant that with a proper service, which this one clearly needs, there is a good chance that it will run well after a service without many other problems arising.
