I've noticed my SW 12" GOTO no longer has a smooth rotation to it (when clutches loose).

It still turns freely, but makes more noise now and tends to have a stop/start feel to it.

Also, I see a "stutter" during AZ tracking although it's still otherwise fine.

 

I know there's a roller bearing in it somewhere but I'm wondering if anyone knows where it is and a suitable replacement.
