I make three. I'll keep an eye out and if I find anything I'll report back as well.

I'm sure there are plenty of places that are willing to do it for a fee if we don't find the answers we're looking for. Does anyone know who's worth it? I've had work done by Du-All so I'm leaning toward them. Any other suggestions?

I'd really like to be able to do this myself because I am based in Paris (where not many techs even know about Scoopics).
Just wondering if anyone has done this or has accessed a service manual showing lubrification points, if any.

I have the Canon Scoopic 16M repair manual. Its a wonderful mechanical guide about this camera and was very useful when I converted it to super 16. It doesn't have special part about lubrication... just notes how to do it in each internal part (necessary to open all the inside camera...).
All the best.
