According to Linn's set up manual, the black oil should NOT go into the white liner, or the liner will swell. I did check with my local Linn dealer; he said Linn does NOT supply the oil go into the white linner. Any suggestions of what oil should be used for a 25 years old sondek, silver bearing housing with white liner?? Thanks, Wesley
