    Save your money!! First: see if your pump has any pre-load against the piston's spring and travel. My machine might be an example of all the +'s or -'s adding up, resulting in a lot of lost...

    Your photo #3 in the last post above is where to start looking for poor pumping.
    I found on my '54 square dial, that there was a shallow dimple worn in the pump's arm where the round end of the...

    I'll 'second' Thermite's recommendation: 'Leave it alone'. This wiring is not in an automobile, bouncing down rough roads, being flexed, stressed or otherwise traumatized. It's actually in very...

    Is it the oil source for the oil passageway that goes to the cross slide feed dial and gear? There is a small passageway that feeds the bearings and into the handle dial assembly.

    You can repair that filter housing. I'd use a piece of copper pipe used for house plumbing. Cut a narrow piece like 1/4" wide, about the depth of your housing. In order to fit it to the housing, ...

    In the photo of the end of the apron with the oil pump attached, there appears to be some clearance between the curved 'fingers' that pull on the pump-piston base.

    Most parts-washers have a filter under the drain, so that the solvent returning to the pump is at least slightly clean.

    I'm not sure if it will work with small diameter tubing, but I have bent some very tight radius curves in 1/2" and 3/8" copper tubing by packing the inside with very fine sand. The sand did a great...

    I had not thought about the added wear on the back flat-way due to the TA's weight.

    I think someone was parting out a Model 61, have you tried a forum search for '61 parts' or '61 apron parts' ?
    The search might be fruitless, but maybe you'll get lucky?
