Wow. I am really getting tired of seeing locomotives for sale on Ebay and other sites, that say the engine is in VG condition, runs great, but could use a good lubrication.
What in the heck is that suppose to mean? Really, am I suppose to buy something that is grinding or peening itself to death?
Am I suppose to assume it hasn't already damaged itself?
Am I suppose to buy a "project"?
If you are in the business of selling used locos, and it needs a good lubrication, then lubricate it before you sell it. If you don't know how, then go to Youtube, or ask somebody, and learn how.
How bout I run an Ad like this: "2007 Toyota Camry for sale. Runs great, but could use a good lubrication. The oil is black as sin, and the front ball joints make a groaning noise every time you turn the wheel. But Hey! Don't miss out on this one!"
