I purchased a couple of old (never played) portables, a D25-s and a d303. Has anybody lubed the gears on these players. Mine seem to be making noise and I would like to lube them up. If anybody has experience I would like some feedback. thanx, doug

Won't excrete urine on your holiday (unless you do so to his first).

I wouldn't be too concerned, the older models had beefier motors and they make some noise. I've got two D-25S's and they work fine.

Your D-25 should be pretty quiet. You can take the cover off of the D-25 without much trouble and check it (I don't know about the 303). If the grease looks like it has dried, get a tube of White Lithium Grease, clean off the old grease with a Q-tip and give it a LIGHT coat. You can find it locally at some Radio Shacks and electrical supply businesses.

I got mine from these guys and can recommend them:

My D25 was fine, but I got some for a tray on an old component CDP that wasn't opening right. Remember: get good coverage but use sparingly.
