I cleaned the switch, checked the spring tension, lubed/cleaned the coil sleeve but its getting progressively worse. Maybe a needs a new coil? suggestions appreciated.

I took a video:

Quoted from LTG:

You lubed the coil sleeve ?
If so I'd pull that whole unit apart and clean it real good. And don't oil the coil sleeve. Check the coil sleeve for wear, breaks or cracks. The pivot point on the kicker may need a tiny drop of oil.
LTG : )

i was trying everything. it seems nice and free, but i will take apart and clean the whole thing.
