AVX mount RA clutch lever
Posted 25 December 2013 - 12:57 AM
i just got a AVX mount, the RA axis could not lock very well.
when i tighten the RA clutch lever really hard, i can still turn the RA axis with my bare hands, not very easily, i mean when i grab the CW shaft and push it a little harder, i can still turn it.
i remember my CG5 doesn't behave like this, when i tighten the clutch lever, i cannot turn that axis at all.
is there anything wrong with the mount?

i mean i have tighten the clutch lever really hard, it won't be any more tighter unless i change to a bigger lever. then if i grab the CW shaft at the middle, i can still turn the axis.

Hi Mike, i tried clean the grease on the plug, it didn't help, maybe some grease got onto the surface of the barrel inside the housing.
Remove ths lever and screw out the clutch bolt. you will find a black derlin plug on the tip. Clean the grease of the plug and reinstll the plug and bolt. The clutch should provide enough friction now.
have to think of a way to clean it

Hi Stan, i try to remove the lever on my CG5, it's a little bigger, but something bad just happened, see here: http://www.cloudynig...6272113/page...
I had to go to the longer ADM clutch levers on my CGEMs in order to get a good lock on the clutches.
