Hi Tom

First thing is, the tracks are a pain to get "square" I cut a 
template from thin plywood, using the holes in a seat bottom for 
positioning and it is still a pain. If they aren't square, you'll 
have problems moving the seat easily over the entire range of motion.

The tracks can be disassembled, cleaned and relubed, which does help, 
but beware there are many small bits that have to go back together 
properly, so make diagrams or take pictures before you take them 
apart. For a lube, you need something that is not to tacky, so dirt 
won't stick, and one of the tricks is to use less than you would 
think, again to cut down on dirt collection.
