Funny... I just read your original post and was about to reply and then saw your second post...

Originally, I was going to say that sometimes, it's best to leave things alone if it's not broken -but in some cases, a little preventative maintenance goes a long way. Sounds like it benefited from a cleaning and now you know the condition of the guts. Good luck and I hope you're able to get it working up to snuff again...
