Whether the Zorki has slow speeds and therefore a governor or not, I don't remember. But said governor controls when the curtain is released, not the speed of travel; it wouldn't effect the shutter at all at full gate speed which is 1/30. And, a drop on the end of a straight pin is far too much for any pivot in the slow speed geartrain, indeed it would possibly be too much oil for the bushings in the curtain drums. The pallet pivots are lubricated, the pallet proper and pallet wheel teeth are not unless the maker specifically recommends it.
