Today on my T-X400, the only ark parts left are the frame and gears, I had my oneway start slipping. Many Years ago as a X - rep there was a special lube for oneways.
Is there anything special today, or use what you got?

Thanks: Terry

automotive transmission fluid, Dexron III or equivalent. Make sure the bearing is clean with brake cleaner or another evaporative solvent, then put in a few dabs of trans fluid, then assemble.

Yes you need ACME one way oil, it is slippy in one direction but a friction agent in the other direction.
Make sure you buy the right bottle as it comes in 2 varieties for clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation

But if you went to the southern hemisphere, which bottle would you use?
And would you have to change lube if you fly upside down?

Too many choices

Thanks: Terry

3-In-1 oil works fine, been using it for years on many models, or sewing machine oil.

Any type of motor oil works fine, stay away form stuff like STP.

Also check your sleeve that is in the lower gear - that is what the one way grabs - it may be worn and all the silver coating gone - this can lead to various one way issues.

You are welcome - let me know what you find - I had lots of lock up issues with the new MH gear w/NSK bearing and lube was not the answer - the sleeve was the first problem and the NSK is a different creature than the bearing Align uses - with a smooth sleeve and good lube and some wear in time , my MH gear is excellent finally!

The Xerox oil you were talking about, actually contained a very fine grit. I tried for years to find a replacement for it now that I retired from the big X and no longer have access to it.

Nothing works on a one way clutch like this oil. Did you remember it was about $50. fo a 2 ounce bottle?
