  1. I like your work very much I am rebuilding A 700D and what a mess looks like it may have garage grade grease in it ? the pc board you made for earlier models is a fantastic idea !!are the motors ever grease or oil free due to poor top rubber cap seal leaking from above?
    Thanks for the words and pics was having trouble even getting the top cover off before finding your info many thanks mark

  2. Thanks for the comment.
    I think on these early models that once that old grease breaks down, the oil will inevitably find its way into the motor compartment. I haven’t yet written the final part of this project blog, but when I put the machine back together I used CRC NSF H1 Synthetic Food Grade Grease, which is a transparent silica based grease. This is supposed to have good stability, so I’m hoping it will last a while.
