I can feel and hear a slight knocking when rotating the Dec axis of my AZ8 (not using the slow-motion control). It is not the worm gear but feels more like a bearing knock. I looked on the Losmandy site for instructions or a diagram on how to take the Dec axis apart but found nothing.
Can anyone share a link to instructions or pass on their method for taking the axis apart?
Which end of the Dec axis should be removed first?
How do you remove the slow-motion control knobs, there is no set screw?
Any tips for things to avoid when disassembling this axis, springs shooting across the room, etc.
Many thanks in advance.
