i recently took apart my eq6-i was attempting to do a total relube but couldn't get the RA axis out- so it turned into a dec axis relube and apparently making sure the gears meshed....which i hope i did right:

anywho- when i manually move the mount after reassembly, it seems way waaayy to easy. Is this a bad thing? I mean- there feels like no resistance at all when i move it with my hands.

Haven't had a chance to try it on the stars yet, the clouds are back, so any opinions are helpful!! Thanks!
