Maintenance on a 21165 (Casey Jones)

The engine I got off Ebay for my All-Aboard set surely needs some care. I cannot seem to find a manual online. Anyone know what the maintenance points are, particularly for regular oiling?

A link to the original documentation would be cool. I found the parts list, but not much else.

The blow up diagram is on p27 of the Locomotive Album of the Factory Service Manual that is posted on the myflyertrains.org website. Lubrication is the same as for any Gilbert steam engine. I will post a better exploded view diagram from the K-Line Service manual.

Thank you, I put a tiny drop of oil on bushings, axles and gears, then ran it upside down and added another tiny drop. Seems much better. This unit I got off Ebay seemed very lightly used, but poorly stored. I've been applying a bit of WD-40 to the light frame rust with a felt tipped WD-40 "pen".

If you want to remove rust on anything, use "Evaporust". It's usually used for soaking parts but I imagine you could brush it on and leave it set. It will remove bluing however.
