Hi Everyone,

When the score motor cycles thru and just before it stops, there is a groaning sound. See youtube clip

The sound was already there when I picked this project machine up 2 years ago. It functions as it should, but this groaning is now consistant, so I'm thinking it's about time to correct that. I have never dabbled in the score motor and not sure where to start on this. I would like to try and make this as painless as possible.

I also have a Williams Swinger and that score motor is quiet.

Might be needing some oil added to the two motor oiling ports. Surprising how well this quiets motors. However, if never oiled the brass plain bearings can lead to stripping the teeth off the slave gear.

To oil both oil port ends the motor needs to be removed.

Thanks for the replies guys. After taking the shield off (thanks for the link curriedog) like you, I cleaned it up and also applied a few drops of oil in the port and success, no more noise, quiet.

thanks again
