I have aquired a HAM-M rotator and I am looking for some information/help.
First, does anybody have the manual/schematics that they could
scan/email/mail a copy to me (or know if they are online someplace)?
Second, I hooked it up and confirmed that it works, but because it had been
up for a while I decided to open it up. The bearings are dirty and the
grease is old and 'gunky' so I want to clean up the bearings and the
plastic bearing retainer and put in new grease. Does anybody have a
recommendation on what to use to clean up / remove the old grease form the
bearing retainer? Is there any particular type of grease I should use?
Last, is it possible to use one of the new (newer?) style control boxes (
brake release switch in between the CCW and CW buttons) instead of the
small rotator with the switch on the bottom that you move left/right to rotate?
Thanks to all who respond.
