Can anyone help

The perforated disk is a heat shield and usually only comes down in the light path on still frame. At regular running speeds, it should not be in the way.

I wonder if what you're seeing is a smear of grease on the moving parts. If so you could replenish it, sparingly, and wipe it off where it's not supposed to be. Presumably it can get runny with the heat.
I probably wouldn't bother unless I were to do a lot of projection.

Thankfully I have run the projector successfully for a few hours now while I transfer my old 16mm movie to my digital camera.
All is well.
