I came across a one owner 1981 orange tube C14 at an estate sale over the weekend. Got it set up and tried it out last night. I'm sure this hasn't been out of the case in many years, but the old triangle tripod was in the worst condition.
The AC powered clock drive for the forks still works, the DEC motor works, the RA slow motion DC motor seems to work in one direction but not the other which could be simply a bad connection. Overall the old fork works pretty well.
I'll need to tune up the collimation but the focuser is pretty smooth with only a little image shift. Seeing was on the poor side of average last night so I can't judge the optics yet. Haven't tried the stovepipe diagonal. The set came with two eyepieces, a 25mm kellner and a 6mm ortho. Can't imagine the owner got much use out of the ortho.
Here's a picture of my new toy:
