Anyone ever maintain this camera by themselves? I can't tell if it needs oil/grease or not but I want to be sure before I shoot my film. There are some instructions in my manual for the internal gears. But there's also a little oil knob on the claw itself, not sure where all the targets are. I want to avoid sending it out to Visual products if I can do it myself.

Thanks

You can easily grease the arri 2 yourself. your best bet is to download the arri2 repair and parts manual...you'll have to google for the source.

Here is the "official" Arri lubrication guide for the II-C. Use it in conjunction with the manual Rob linked.
