{Collins} S line preselector mechanism

Clear DayI recently acquired a 75S3 on which the preselector rack was
slipping and binding....I completely disassembled,cleaned ,lubricated and
reassembled the mechanism..For those who attempt this operation be sure not
to lose the very small ball bearing on the rear of the large tube and the
small clips that hold the copper berrilium bands on the rollers!!..Also be
very cautious when lifting the mechanism not to damage the slugs...After
reinstalling and realignment the radio now works fine...E mail for
disassembled preselector.picture.....Lou...ND6W
