Can anyone suggest a suitable grease to use on a Linhof Kardan Color 8x10 that I'm getting back in to service?
This is the grey one with the "U" standards and round chrome monorail. Serial number is 1030.
The rise/fall and shifts are quite stiff and 'sticky'; it seems like the grease is dried out. I cleaned the old grease off and tried some light grease I had on hand on one of the standards, but it doesn't create a smooth action - I still get the 'stickieness'.
I hope I will be able to get smooth action on this camera with the right lubrication.
