I just purchased an 8-inch f/6 Coast Instrument Treckerscope on eBay. The mirror is signed by the optician, and dated 3/31/1959.

I'm not new to Treckerscopes, having visited the store in the 1950s, but I need help from anyone who has one with a complete clock drive. Mine is missing the motor and some other small parts and I need to see a detailed closeup of a fully functional Trecker clock drive, as well as the motor specs.

Any info. that you Trecker experts can provide will be sincerely appreciated.

Thanks,
Lew Chilton
