Maybe someone could help me ?
I bought months ago a Meade LXD 750 mount, the "little beast".
More sturdy than an EQ-6 mount, it easily supports a 350 mm
telescope. I like it, it's a cool mount of the 90s'!
It has been (badly) modified and I try to repair the damages ! The RA
motorization was not working. After investigation I find that the
worm was blocked because there was not enough backslash.
I don't want to repair the old electronics. I have an EQ-6 goto kit
and I want to fit it to the LXD 750. The good new is that the EQ-6
and LXD 750 have the same number of teeths on gear wheels (180), so the
same demultiplication. Bad new is that there is not enough room around
worm axle to fit the well-known Rowan EQ-6 kit. It uses 47-teeth T2.5
pulley (2.5 mm step). And the outer diameter of this pulley is greatly
over available space.
The only solution would be to use and fit MXL pulleys (2.03 mm step).
Finding a 48 teeth pulley is easy :
But impossible to find a 47 teeth pulley !?
Please, do you know where to find this "5 legs sheep" ?
Many thanks for your suggestions !
