Peterson EZ Clutch Kit

This kit modifies the declination clutch system on Meade 7" through 12" LX200GPS telescopes and Meade 8" - 12" LX90 telescopes. When installed, lightly tightening the clutch knob with two fingers is all that is required to hold even the most unbalanced scope firmly in position.

Meade's design utilizes a "wet clutch" system where two steel plates engage the aluminum declination drive gear. The space between these plates is lubricated to prevent the aluminum gear from galling and having aluminum chips falling onto the worm gear drive below. The EZ Clutch Kit converts Meade's clutch design to a "dry clutch," adding a specially developed friction plate to the system.

The modification procedure is simple, and the 4 page photo illustrated instruction sheet contains detailed step by step instructions.
