Meade LXD 75 mount

Martin Whitaker

Recommended Posts

Following my last post on my troublesome lxd 75 mount that would not slew I have been stripping it down and initially thought I had identified the problem of non actuation of drive motors as a loose auger screw, I thought I would continue to strip the whole mount and re-grease and do my basic version of a 'tune up'.

Unfortunatly I have now found the real cause of the dead motors as a partially stripped gearbox gear, the only plastic one of the 4 gears.

Now does anyone know where I might locate one I have looked on Meade site to no avail as yet, I have also thought about Maplins but will have to visit the shop.

The main problem is it is a double sized gear in one.

Any help would be much appreciated.
