Thank you Torch! To be more exact, everything turn extremely tight. I believe you’re right on with the congealed grease. I see several lumps of gum-like grease drops at the bottom of the spindle. So, I’m going to disassemble, soak and clean everything up. Again, I’m very grateful to you.
Spray things liberally. Work them back and forth gently, a little bit at a time. Be patient. If you can work some light oil into the joints and rehydrate the old grease, things will be easier to disassemble without damaging force.
