Clean and lube an old style 10x15 C&P?

I just got this beautiful old beast. Has not been in service since 1960 and I wanna use it.

Now what?

Oiling? Cleaning? Other things to look for?

If you send me your email address I will attach a 4 page pdf oil chart.

start with “Automatic Transmission fluid” . put it in any hole you can find. do it for a few days, and note which holes do not “take” oil. those are either not oil holes, or if they are, then there is a problem that needs to be addressed. don’t overlook “gatelock”
