    Do I need to take the cam stack apart? I see two screw holding them together - they have been soaked with the Hoppe's all week.

    You do not have to take it apart but it is easier to clean the gears under it and the stack itself.

    I put a little T-F on the stitch selector posts then move them up and down quite a few times - seems like they are greedy for oil and need to be moved a lot. Anything that moves will need T-F - just a dot is all you need though.

    Thanks, Miriam - it didn't seem like they should come apart, but I thought I'd ask. It is all very clean now - will put it back together and start trying to re-assemble the top tension thingy.

    I'M SORRY - I JUST TRIED TO FIND THE VERY SAME INFORMATION THIS MORNING AND COULD NOT GET ANYTHING TO COME UP EITHER - I'm thinking there are way too many topics on here these days - makes it hard to find important information - we may need to put some info on this in a sticky note or something.
