and Oiling tips
- Frequently Asked Questions
should I oil my T-jets?
like to recommend and use the "5-spot" method, note these are with small
drops of oil. 1st: On the bottom of the chassis in the arm center hole.
2nd: Between the arm top gear and the gearplate. Let the oil wick underneath
the gear. 3rd: Between the shoulder of the crown gear (gear on rear axle)
and the chassis - Not on wheel hub side. 4th: On the rear axle on the opposite
side of the chassis - again, not on the wheel hub side. 5th: On the underside
of the top gearplate where the pinion gear and shaft come thru - let oil
wick onto shaft between gear and plate.
do you recommend for cleaning a dirty chassis?
like to recommend and use lighter fluid. This is not the butane lighter
fluid but the kind your dad used to use in his lighters. This is still
easily found in stores today. But liberally soak the chassis in the lighter
fluid and then cotton swab the chassis clean. Remove all oils, hair, etc.
from the chassis and axles.
contacts are green and corroded, how can I clean them?
a difficult one. There are some corrosion cleaners for copper, but I've
found the fastest way is to simply get out the dremel tool and wire brush
the plates and shoes clean.
hope this helps with your Aurora oil & cleaning questions and if you
