    Yep, I called yesterday, It will cost me 100 dollars to get it in tip top shape, but I think it will be well worth the investment.

    For cleaning and lubing your "new" FW, I suggest you get Dave McCallum's CD on caring for your machine.

    If you're talking about the electrical, then I suggest taking it to a pro.
