Quote:I have a 8" starfinder EQ I know the 10" used the same mount maybe you have a mount for a 6" starfinder in that case is the mount even big enough for the 10" starfinder something to think about could be to small with the extra weight.....

George You know you're getting on when the equipment you farmed with is showing up as suburban lawn ornaments.
Quote:I'm a bit confused. The starfinder came with AC drive. Has yours been converted to DC? If the gear needs adjusting just loosen or tighten the adjusting screw inside the motor housing. Really no lube needs to be applied to the motor but use it sparingly if you do. You don't want to gum it up.
