Quote:Hi Chris: Thanks for the quick reply.I had a look at the dec ensemble and found the parts you mentioned.Before I replaced the spring I tried adjusting it in and out w/o any results.Cleaned the gears and tried lithium grease jsut to see.Same result.Tried to manually vary spring pressure by jiggling block.Niet.By now it,s +10 deg C and it runs fine.So much for short cuts.This is my 5th Meade sct but the first time I`ve had this problem.nOne question though:where does one get these exotic greases you suggested´.You`re in Hawaii.I feel you`re pain LOL.Walter in the middle of a heat wave.
