    Quoted from o-din:

    Sometimes I get them from Hawaii. That must be an interesting drive.

    It is...

    Perhaps one of the best lubricants ever.

    I recently picked up some Labelle 102 gear lubricant. I will be using it to quiet the noisy gears on my TZ clock. My brother is into model trains, and he swears by this stuff ...

    My Twilight Zone stopped kicking balls into the trough after a drain yesterday.
    So I removed the apron which had apparently never been cleaned underneath. Lol.
    It is all shiny clean now.
    Anyway I thought for sure the problem was with the coil and plunger.
    But turns out it was the pivot point with the c clamp on top.
    The old grease had turned to glue. I cleaned it all off and decided to put it back dry.
    It is working like a champ again. For my home use pin, I did not think new grease would help very much.
    Here is a photo of it, dirt and all.

    This was exactly the problem with my Airborne when I first got it. Virtually every mech in the game was all gunked up at the pivot point. Like you, I thoroughly cleaned everything, and then reassembled it dry. Been working perfectly ever since.
