    Hi ! My Zenith Allegro is not turning evenly...I want to go in and lubricate it but I wonder what should I use to do it ? I live in a small town near Quebec, Canada and do have a lot of store supply near...so is there anything easy to find that I can put ??

    Thanks for your time !!

    Also, this might do better in the gear forums. @mcherry could you move it there?

    This forum is meant to be questions about VMP (it’s cool, it’s a little confusing at first)

    Also, welcome!

    Welcome!

    Your original oil/grease has hardened. You need to clean it up and re lube it. I'd try white lithium grease available at any auto parts store.
