Could you post links to the instructions you have obtained so far?


Has anyone seen a case where the odo seems to 'ratchet' ahead instead of moving smoothly?   I haven't had it out, but I wonder if it is a lubrication issue.

Hey, thanks a lot for the input, Bob.  I have found instructions for a
solder job that's supposed to take care of the bouncing needle/odo too.  So
maybe with those two sets of instructions, I can find the right guy and get
it done locally.  But it's nice to know you might be able to do it as a back
up option!
