The VFO 'A' tuning knob on my FT920 VHF IF radio has, after a several month
period of noticeable stiffness, finally locked up tight.  I know this was a
failure point on other FT models of the 90's and early 2000's and am
curious if anyone has ever had a 920 apart for the problem.

I am assuming there is a bushing on the shaft that has given up and either
galled the shaft or disintegrated.  What does it take to get in there ?
