Don't do it!!! Have you tried greasing the gears or asking a luthier to take a look? A 60's Southern Jumbo in good shape that's all original is a true classic that you DO NOT want to compromise. Changing out anything other than saddle, nuts & frets will definitely take away value. Those old Kluson tuners, despite that their stiffness are highly prized. Check out this link. It's on Les Pauls, but applies to acoustics as well. http://www.doctorvintage.com/tuners/50s_klusons.html
