Mine was a Telechron...
In mine, I ended up taking the smallest drill bit I can find, drilling a
small hole in the top of the case and put sewing machine oil in there, then
solder the hole closed. 

That was on 27 April 2006, and it is still going strong and has not lost any
time.


I may be way off for your application, but it worked for mine.

Not a stupid question at all, Bow.  It goes in a timer relay for a GE
BT-20-A broadcast transmitter.  It provides a 30 second delay before you can
apply B+ to the circuitry.  It's the old fashioned way of doing it!  I
cleaned and oiled it, but it's still intermittent.  Sometimes it'll start
and sometimes it just sits there.  What did you do to get yours to work?

Possibly a stupid question, but..

What is it for?

What is wrong with it?

The reason I ask is because I restored a Zenith Clock Radio (1953 era) and
had to get the clock motor running again, which I did with success.
