What's the procedure for rebalancing. If I have very good polar alignment

Your pointing model is not affected if you loosen the clutches to rebalance.
On the other hand, why do you need to do this? I image all the time without
ever rebalancing. It is not really necessary. I have been as much as 8lb out of
balance on both 900/1200 mounts, and recently ran 6lb out of balance on my
little bitty Mach1 mount. The tracking/guiding was spot on perfect.
