More than likely. Put a few drops of ATF in it and fly it. It should loosen with a few flights on it. then just add a few more drops of ATF to keep it lubed about every 20 flights or so.

.

Don't come off the throttle untill you see your GOD!

Just curious, when you are putting in ATF, are you dropping the main gear to get at it, or do you squeeze the tip of the can/tube and drop it in from the top?

ATF, automatic transmittion fluid. I use a dropper and put it in the top of the bearing so it will wick in.

Triflow will work, but I think ATF works better.
