- I am doing some spring maintaince on my equipment and I have a ts-
140 hooked to a at-250 tuner..recently I have noticed the tuner has
slowed down in the tuning process.
I was wondering if there is a place to put a drop of oil on the
shafts or is there a set way to lube the internal works[shafts etc]
Maybe there is a site available to read up on this item.....
- You can put one drop of oil (I use 10W-30, seems to
work well; 5W-30 would also be fine) on shafts where
they go thru bushings... do not oil the nylon gears or
the back slip contact on the variable caps.
Motors could be slow because of a power supply issue
so if you have the schematics you may wish to check
all the regulated voltages also.
Things can change on your antenna also; presenting
more of a challenge to the tuner. Some impedance
combinations will take longer to tune than others.
