Here are the images i promised..
I don't have a macro-lens, so it's still a bit tricky to image this well, but on the first two images you can see the cage that holds the rollers not having a square edge, but it looks like something touched/shaved off the corners. I think it's best to see by the different reflections of the light.
Looking at the play of the rollers it doesn't really seem to be causing any actual impact, so I will not replace this bearing, as it seems to be a bit tricky to get it out.
I also attached an image of how the inside looks like from the other side.
The worm gear housing had quite a lot of paint, so i have cleaned this off right away.
I have also ordered SKF bearings for the worm-shaft, so i will replace those.
Can anybody please give me a pointer on how to best remove the RA shaft?
I know to first remove the polar scope, then I removed the "pointer", and I am aware that there are 3 grub screws that have to be loosened/removed through the holes of the RA clutch.
That's basically where I am stuck now, as i don't know how to best remove this assembly then.
I understand on the regular EQ6 it's best to use an oil-filter-extractor, would this be the same on the AZ? can you mount one of those with the silver ring of the clutch still being in the way, or can this clutch-ring be removed individually?
