What I would do is clean area with air (wear safety glasses) then I use a spray type of dry lubricant on the threads and also the plates that the motor slides on. You can also use WD-40 in a pinch. Hope this helps

Sometimes you just have to shim them. If you've worked the gibs and can't get any more adjustment out of them, you might try buying some thin brass or copper metal stock (you can get it in rolls at Hobby Lobby) and use it as a shim to hold the table in the appropriate position.
It sounds crude, but that was the only way I managed to get my industrial 6" powermatic to true up.
Also bring the infeed table up to zero, aligned exactly with the outfeed table and check with a known true straightedge. This will help you to keep a clear idea in mind of which direction to move things when you're making adjustments.
If you can get the edges and diagonals straight, you're well on your way to straight cuts.
Make sure beforehand that the surface you're fixing to is flat and you're not clamping the machine down in a way that's torqueing the base.
Castings just aren't rested long enough these days before the surfaces are ground, and things twist a bit sometimes. You may be working with a surface not flat, and unable to get it perfect.
Good luck. I hope that helps a little.
You may need to use an auxiliary roller stand to support the outfeed of long boards to keep the weight from causing a droop that lifts the tail off the tables and prevents a straight cut.
