Quote from: cornell9 on September 22, 2020, 04:10:03 PMI had a WE 5H dial that was difficult to dial numbers - required extra force compared to my other WE dials.After some trial and error, removing and cleaning the shaft and gears of both the governor and the gear touching the governor, and making the dial spring one revolution less tight 100% fixed the issue. Not even an ultrasonic bath (with those two items installed in place) did the job - I needed to remove and clean the shafts, gears, and holes where the shafts are installed (with a toothpick and lint free wipe). I'd guess that taking everything apart and doing the ultrasonic clean might be a good plan if this happens in the future.
