Any buddy got a clue?

Remove the actuator...remove the pin...remove the ball bearing if you can...using a grease gun pump 4-6 shots into the hole that pin goes in. Hold the nozzle square and firm to the countershaft so that the grease goes in. It is not necessary to remove the ball in order for the grease to pass through to the sliding parts that need grease, but it would be a good idea to remove it for a visual check just in-case it's busted-up.

Remove the CAM from the actuator to see if there is a lot of wear on the eccentric, (the surface that pushes against the pin).
