My dad (passed) did change the motors and covers from the 2000 stock to a 2002 upgrade. No idea what I am getting into.
I have been told that it is all really easy once you get the thing apart. but that is deep for me. I can fix modern TVs, and solder boards. Gears and worms are things I have never had to work with.
Thank you for any PDFs, or help. Adam

I sorry for your loss. Congrats on your mount. After being stored for 10 yrs you probably will need to clean & relube the RA/Dec axis. It isn't hard but, can be messy. Before you start you need to get a set of allen wrenches that includes a .5mm. To clean you'll a degreaser like simple green. To relube I (& many others) use Superlube. You can get this at most autoparts stores. Detailed instructions can be found at the Losmandy Yahoo Group. HTH

About 2 hours in to the break down. Taking reference photos of everything. It is easier than expected. I fount on random old cache page that there is little that I can truly mess up. Lube comes Tuesday after spending an hour calling around.
Hope to have it up and testing on Wednesday.
