Default Gibraltar 3311S update

Got the Gibraltar 3311S strap drive about six months ago.I've been using it on my practice kit and since gigs have been few and far between as of late I've been using it much more than my workhorse Speed King. The last couple of times I practiced I noticed a squeak. Since I was in the middle of my 12-hour shift week I wasn't able to troubleshoot it till today. Here's what I found:

The part where the spring attaches at the top is not a bearing. It's just a bushing. I removed the phillips-head screw, cleaned the bushing really well, and lubricated it with some petroleum jelly. Worked great. I also tightened the set screw where it attaches to the axle (for lack of a better word). Looks like I'll have to include this as part of an every three month tune-up.

Now that you've gone that far, I may suggest some Lithium white grease next time rather than petroleum jelly. I don't feel it will last long.

You're probably right. I just used what I had available. I'll get some white lithium grease the next time I go to the hardware store. It's literally a two-minute job.
