Re: Dec axis motor system faulty or newbie error?? #EXOS2

Paul Mogg

Well I fixed it, took me while as I'm not used to doing any mechanical stuff, and finding the right hex keys etc. but it was exactly as Robert had predicted, both of the set screws holding the large pulley in place on the DEC motor assembly were completely loose on their spindle, so the motor was turning but it wasn't turning the head.

Many thanks again to Robert for his help and instruction sheet, and to Tony for his helpful suggestions.
