Duals are the same way, and their "recommendations" should be followed. I didn't on my "gift horse" Dual 1226, and guess what? I hadda clean out all my new "super lubes" and use the Dual lubes.
Hey now, don't gripe about Alfa's. They also recommended Castrol and Esso lubes! Now old Ducati's and Moto Guzzi's didn't....
I owned an 1800 Spyder Velocci- "arrest me RED". Probably
"Black Magic" spindle oil (LPGear.com) would be suitable for the main bearing. On the tonearm, "Xtream 2000" synthetic firearm lube would be suitable. It's extremely light weight, and safe for use on metal or plastic (Glock's, SIG/Sauer's and Heckler and Koch pistols and rifles) and very "slick". It doesn't evaporate or "gum" either. A call to LPGear or to Garage-a-Record.com, and the very nice people there can give more "accurate" information. Many other e-tailers that sell cartridges and stylii and turntable accessories can help you too. I've just used LPG and GAR quite a lot.
