I've never seen inside an Atlas but if these photos help thats cool. In my case I had to tighten that screw that is seen on the last photo between the control panel and the brass gear.

In pic 4 it appears that the worm wheel has some damaged spurs, is that true or is it just the way the light is on the oil?
What were the symptoms that caused you to have to dismantle the drive?
Thanks, I also have an EM-200, this is just for future needs if needed.

Richard, what prompted me to take the mount apart was the small bolt that is in photo #4 was loose. I did not know this prior to taking it apart but that's what it was. And yes, the worm gear appears to be damaged but that is because of the flash. I used a cheapie camera and the direct flash did not help very much. If I ever have to resort to taking the mount apart again I will take photos with my studio lights and Canon 5D!!!
