[AMRadio] Diversion

I had a G-50 a couple years ago with the same problem. The internal
reduction drive assembly was slipping in some places. I squirted some
degreaser inside the bigger shaft, and it worked much better. It started
slipping again when it dried, but after squirting a little more in there,
the slipping was gone. 
It might not work all the time, but it did work for me.

I took time-out from the R-3** and BTA-1R2 and BC-610 and so on to get 
the G-50 I bought a while back in operation.  After stuffing the  filter 
capacitors and replacing a couple of capacitors in the cathode circuit 
of the speech amp/preamp combo the G-50 came to life.  However, I find 
now that the variable capacitor on the receive VFO is having turning 
problems.  It's one of those geared internally capacitors with one shaft 
inside another one.  I guess the friction clutch or whatever makes those 
things tick is worn out or maybe oily.  Does anyone have a solution for 
such a problem, other than replacing it?
