I would NOT use Tri-Flo on any A807 motor. The capstan motors with the
red labels must have GLY2100, without the read label, PDP65, both Kluber.
I am only suggesting Tri-Flo on moving parts, but not tape path moving
parts or motors. I have found it superior to replace ball bearings
rather than trying to relubricate them. Sintered bronze sleeve bearings
are complex and need to be "fed" the same oil that they were made with.
Azimuth screws, pinch roller linkages, tape lifters, hum shields are
good candidates for Tri Flo, but I think in all those applications I
like GLY2100 better.
As I said, ask Kluber if they are still selling the small sample bottles.
