Can anyone tell me if the LXD55 uses the same worm gear assembly for both the RA drive and the Dec drive? Are they interchangeable?

Thanks!

Yes they are, Yet I have never swapped them out, but after tuning and disassembling / reassembling this mount, they do resemble each other and should work in either housing.
