Dont use WD-40! Get some bushing oil from your LHS.

If its full of dust and crap it wouldnt hurt to waterdip it to clean it then dry and re-oil the bushings.
The vibration and noise you hear is the armature oscillating in the bushings because of lack of oil .

Are there any substitutes for bushing oil? I'm only asking 'cause I have a concauction of marvel mystery oil and mobil 1 engine oil to lube bearings. So it's like a cheap, long lasting alternative.
