I'm wondering if anyone knows of a source for LX200 Classic
Dec Motor complete?
I have one that is weak and stalls sometime slewing setting up.
I can cold boot and realign and it usually works fine, I noticed that it can be turned by hand while running,
I know my other LX200 Dec motor cant be turned when powered on by hand.
Thanks
Larry

Sounds like possibly worn-out motor brushes.

The LX200 Classic Yahoo group might be a great resource for you.

I hope this helps.
