{Collins} Re: final problem: exciter tuning knob slipping!! HELP



Quick way or long term solution?
Quick way: tighten the set screw on the back of the tuning bar.
re-tighten periodically.

Long term: Remove the tuning unit and disassemble.  Watch for ball
bearings!!!
Clean and degrease.
Lubricate bearings, slides and rollers with white lithium grease.  Dust the
slugs with a little talcum powder.
Enjoy smooth, trouble free tuning that feels like it just left the factory.
