Re: "Y" Cable Diagram for 900GTO and 1200GTO with GTOCP2 or 3
Clever idea using the slip joints in that way. The housings shouldn't
really be all that tight in the first place (I hope! As I've said
before - Don't think lug nuts!). The alternate method may really be
the safest in terms of avoiding scratches and tooth marks on the
Mag. 7 skies!

When unscrewing mine, I used a pair of slip-joint pliers across the
inner ring, with a tooth of one jaw in the gap in the ring, and a piece
of cardstock opposite to keep the other jaw's teeth from marring the
I haven't tried the needle-nose pliers yet, so I don't know which is
easier. The needle-nose method is certainly safer as there's no chance
of deforming the ring by squeezing too hard.

Anthony, Chuck, Richard and all the Gang!
I'm sorry this took so long, but I had to start from scratch.
if you go to our Tech Support section on the website and look
either 900GTO or 1200GTO, you will see a new entry entitled:
Troubleshooting and Repairing Your 900GTO or 1200GTO Servo "Y"
(GTOCP2 or 3 only) (11 -29-07) - PDF document. I hope that this
fit the bill and help you with your cable issues.
Good luck, and please provide feedback on the document. I
will need to make similar versions for the different cables used
other mounts. A tech guy's work is never done . . .
