All,

I have a Coronado 90 DS.  I would like some information as to how the rich view tuner works and if it's possible to break the etalon if i move the pin and turn it too far.  I havn't broken it, but I'm scared to death to move the pin.       

Thanks

Dave

As far as I can tell from my unit is that rotating the the adjustable part of the rich tuner clockwise increases the compression of the etalon plates and vice versa.  Presumably, one could over tighten the adjustment to the point where it could cause damage to the central pin that passes through the etalon plates.

Over-tightening can potentially cause a break. Don't push it to the extreme. flowerred.gif

 

Very best,

Thanks guys, When I turn it I don't feel any resistance.    Should I feel some resistance whey it gets close to over tightening?
