Autolube settings

My autolube seems like it never worked quite right. My 1999 machine would have obvious oil residue on the rails and lead screw.

Specifically, the Y rails and lead screw seem dry to me. I can adjust the "drip" and the feed pressure to the point that I see the mist coming off the X and Z rails, but the Y doesn't show that. I can pull the outfeed hose on the reservoir and there is a mist. And, I know that air is getting to those bearings. Are the wipes on the Y rail bearings and lead screw just tighter than the X and Z bearings?
