>I have just purchased an RL02 and while waiting for it to arrive, I am wondering what to do for cleaning and lubrication before power-up. I don't know how long it's been sitting (indoors). I have downloaded the manual from bitsavers. I know there has been some discussion on this list recently but I think that was on the care and feeding of RK05's...

?!? One of the shipping locks requires the pack to be removed. The early
RL02s used a plate that was screwed in over the head to lock them and the
later ones had a spring loaded lock that was active anythimg the pack was
removed. So head lock can only occur with the pack out no matter what.
This should be in the user manual.
