Basically you need to clean out all of the old lubricant around the tuning shaft that has hardened over the years.  Replace it with a good quality lubricant preferably with some sort of electrical conduction in it.

What you are seeing is VERY common in the old LMOs.

Has anyone had success in repairing a noisy LMO (tube type) - that is "scuzzy" when turning the dial. I would believe that the variable cap inside has a lousy moving contact problem.
Never attempted one before, nothing to lose, I'll pull it apart and give it a go. Suggestions? We have an arsenal of contact cleaning stuff here.
