87 5kcstq questions (antenna won't extend fully)
As it happens, I worked on that exact problem last night ( antenna won't
extend fully). I took the antenna apart and tried to get it to extend by squirting
some penetrating lubricant into the back side of the mast without result.
I was successful when I used a pair of pliers (carefully) on one section and
a pair of vise-grips on the other section twisted the two until they loosened a
little, then I pulled on the tip while the antenna was extending. Once it was up
completely, I lubricated it with grease and ran it up and down a few times while
I pulled/pushed on the mast as it was moving. After a few times, it continued to
work without assistance.
***BE CAREFUL, it would be a major bummer to crush the mast.****
Hope this helps
