LightBucket Posted May 8, 2017 Share Posted May 8, 2017 (edited) Hi all recently bought a secondhand EQ6 pro mount, and got a longer counterweight bar for it, Now my issue is that when taking the old one out, fitting the new one and then re fitting the big locking collar that secures it on as well as holds the RA bearings in place, how tight should that be before i tighten up the three grub screws...?? i did not really check this before I took apart, (mistake I know) I have tightened it up to take all the slack out of the bearings and then a tad more and locked down, seems fine, but it would tighten about another half a turn !!!....but on the Astro Baby strip down PDF I have it says to tighten as much as possible by hand then release enough for the counterweight clutch lever to be in line with the DEC clutch lever, well that's impossible on mine, as it will be either much much too loose, or I would have to tighten with brute force....and still not get it inline. i have looked at pictures of other mounts and those two clutch levers are hardly ever inline, so very confused about the Astro Baby instructions....any ideas guys Edited May 9, 2017 by LightBucket Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
