      I would apply a very light coating of grease, yes.

      I have a etx 125 ec that I picked up used.  I had to degrease the RA and DEC gearboxes.  I completely removed all of the Meade extra thick green grease that was causing motor unit failures. The gears are plastic and In good shape.  Do I need to re-grease them lightly with lithium grease or can I leave them ungreased?  Thanks for any help.
