Response to where to apply oil

Cannon Pinion - minor amount of grease inside
Winding gears- minor amount of grease
Bolt spring - minor amount of grease
Mainspring - grease or heavy watch oil - minor amount
Mainspring arbor ends around barrel neck - heavy watch oil
Mainspring mounts - slight amount of grease
Pivot ends - outside only - watch oil
Centre second pinion - no lubrication
Balance staff caps - watch oil
Pallets (pin or swiss club tooth) - watch oil, but only very small amount
lever fork if roller pinion is steel, as with a Timex - tiny amount of watch oil
Date train - no lubrication but can use tiny amount of oil on date ring clicks
Hand motion gears - no lubrication
Mainspring barrel click - tiny amount of grease on click end, tiny amount of oil on pivot
Winding stem - tiny amount of watch oil on square

This is the basic Mo, but all depends on what type of movement and how complex it is.

Regards


Greg
