Hello Om. I had the same problem on a Corsair II the only difference
is that mine would do it in either direction. I called TEN TEC and
gpt a vfo rebuild kit , about 20 bucks , fixed it up fine. I think 
the only thing wrong was the old Grease, clean it and regrease it
and it will probably be ok. Let me know how it comes out.
