I generated this one a few days ago, but didnt get a chance to post it yet.
And a high rez iso sectional:
The yellow rectangle with the notch is the worm wheel and the gold block with circle touching the worm wheel is the worm gear and mounting block. The grey block next to the worm block is the worm /servo mount.
The needle roller bearings are not shown on either axis so use your imagination where the cutouts are on the axis bearing preload shaft. The shaft inside the axis shaft is the clutch shaft for tightening the clutch.
