Otari fixed guides

<< < (4/4)

Cleaning the guides with lots of alcohol can sometimes remove the lubricant that is sealed inside the ball bearings and that can make them noisy. We have seen this happen on one or two other decks. Normally I don't hear that sound except in fast wind and since you are only hearing one of the guides that may be what has happened. If that is the case the solution is probably replacement.

Rereading the previous posts carefully, it sounds like brute force--and perhaps acetone?--is the way to go with these early guides?
