I seem to be getting a creak in the pivots of my Sewanee. I tightened all the bolts and it subdued a little for a short period of time. Any suggestions on pivot/bushing maintenance to eliminate the squeak?
fixing the creak
On my Sewanee LS the creak was in the lower pivot. If you have a new Sewanee call Litespeed and get new dust covers for the bearings. The new dust covers lightly preload the bearings into the race and eliminate the creak. You can test prior to contacting litespeed. Remove the dust covers and lightly press bearings back into bearing race. Install dust covers, "do not overtighten". The creak should be gone.
