Re: Motor Gear box removal instructions (newer auto-meshing model)

I believe the screws are deeper in those holes that have the cover screws. It takes a little precision to get the allen key all the way in there and hit the mark. That might be what you are missing.

Subject: [ap-gto] Motor Gear box removal instructions (newer auto-meshing model)


I'm looking for instructions on how to remove the motor gear box on my AP1100GTO.  I have the latest model (I believe) of motor gear box supporting auto-meshing capability with the lever for disengaging the worm from the worm wheel.  I can't find removal instructions for this specific model of motor gear box.  I'm wanting to re-grease the mount and the instructions that came with the grease kit describe an earlier model that has cap screws on the exterior.  I hesitant to proceed opening things up without the matching documentation.  

I checked the documents on astro-physics website and the files on but I may be overlooking which manual is the correct one to follow.
Can someone point me in the right direction?
