I own the G-70 arm. Had it for about 4 months now. Worked great and still do. But I had a fall a couple of weeks ago which broke my rig (the bottom part broke), and after that I noticed a squeaky sound in the lower part of the first arm section.

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?

Had the same problem with my G-70. A drop of fine oil or teflon spray at the spring ends takes care of it.

see this post for the G-50 arm: here!

Lars & Peter,

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.

Best,

Steve Fracol

Peter & Steve,

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.

Just used the ACF-50. Works like a charm!
