Re: How to Re-grease a Mach1 with Auto-Adjust Motor Boxes?
Hello,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Thought I would share my regrease experience since I recently completed the task on a Mach 1 that I purchased in 2016. Not being naturally mechanically gifted I reviewed the AP provided directions that describe the process for several mounts. Also, searched the internet for a video and found a useful hint (the longer T shaped Allen wrenches to more easily reach the bolts and provide enough torque to break loose the bolts). I separated the mount and had the grease, Q-Tips, small cloth, gauze, several toothbrushes and was ready to go. None of the photos matched my mount which confused me so I sent George pictures of my mount’s motor boxes and asked for guidance. George’s reply was brief. “Directions for my mount were on page 10” which by the way had no photos.
The regressing was uneventful but sorely needed. The mount slews perceptibly smoother and quieter.
Certainly, I added the note “My mount directions” to page 10.to avoid confusion in the future as I plan to regrease annually.
I agree the directions can be confusing but I recommend seeking AP technical staff’s input if you are unsure about something. They are always there for you.
