Squeaky G-70 arm
Posted 22 September 2007 - 05:57 AM
Don't know if anything has happened, but both knobs work fine, and no fault on the way the arm is acting. Just the sound. Worried that something might have happened to the arm, but hope not. The fall wasn't really hard enough to put great strain on the arm I believe.
Anybody got any good tips for making the sound go away? Should I send the arm into a check up?

The best oil I have found is ACF-50. It has been mentioned several times here on the forum. It seems to stop anything from squeaking, creaking, etc. Works for quite a long while as well.
I got mine at our local small downtown airport at the parts counter. I recently saw it advertised in a British Motorcycle restoration magazine as well.
Lars-Good luck and sorry for the fall. Hope your OK.

thanks for the replies.
Good news about the arm then. And the fall does give me an opportunity to rebuild my sled, as I'm not happy about its bottom part. I'm ok, just a few bumps and scratches.
