420C tach drive lubrication

Post by 420C-Mike » Wed Mar 02, 2016 7:05 pm

Considering adding a tach to my 420C. Found and bought a used tach drive. Reasonable condition but turns with a bit of drag. Can this be lubricated/ Suggestions?

I'd hang it from one end and feed some Brake-Kleen fluid thru it,spinning it, to clean it. After it is clean and spinning freely, I'd hang it from both ends and fill it with a light/thin oil, then install.
