"Stiff" TV EQ mount
Posted 27 February 2011 - 12:51 PM
It worked fine in the warm weather but now (winter Ohio) it is very stiff and I don't think my clock drive will drive it. It is actually hard to turn the slow motion controls by hand.
Anyone have any drawings or directions as to how to disassemble? I think it need different grease for Ohio! Is there any way to adjust the clutches?
It came from California. It would probably work fine there. Thanks; Don T.

I took it partway apart and sprayed a light oil into both ends of the declination and RA and then worked them by hand.
I did not remove the shafts. That was probably the best way but what I did worked. Don T.
