i have gotten a 3A type arm at a very good price
it needs a bit of love

i would like to service it myself, now i have read that one should use a teflon type grease for thrust bearings and clean tyhem witha contact cleaner or alchohol

are there any other tips/advice for doing this?

what should i look out for?

any advice would be appreciated

I was reading ASC magazine 2009/01, found his ad servicing steadicam arms and the phone number was given: (323) 938 5659

Hope that helps!

The phone number in Tomas' reply is Robert Luna's. If you search the forum you'll find many references to his expertise and exceptional work with CP era arms. He serviced my fiftteen year old EFP arm last year. Fast turn around. Arm restored to full function.
If you want to invest in a full inspection and cleaning he seems to be the best option in the states.
