I have an older meade LX2000 EMC 10

The main problems encountered with the mechanics of the telescope centre around the mechanical swarf, grease compound, the liberal use of grease and the quality of machining of the main DEC and RA gears.
1. Remove the motors from the telescope. Be careful when removing either motor as there is a compression spring between the motor mounting frame and the worm shaft assembly.
The RA motor is located under the telescope body, removing the 4 screws and 2 Allen bolts will allow the bottom cover to be removed, thereby allowing access the the 2 Allen bolts holding the motor in place. Unplug the motor from the main PCB before removal.
The DEC motor is in the the fork arm containing the clutch and fine DEC adjustment control. (Never to be used with power applied to the scope). Remove the 3 small Allen screws holding the plastic cover plate in place and the DEC clutch knob to allow access to the motor. Remove the RJ45 connector located inside the telescope fork arm. Then remove the motor by unscrewing the 2 Allen bolts holding the motor in place.
2. Remove all grease from the motor worms, especially around the RA motor's magnetic pulse detector and the permanent magnet built into the worm shaft.
3. Remove all grease from the main DEC and RA gears, making sure to clean into the gear teeth.
4. Lightly re-grease with a Molybdenum Disulphide based grease (Castrol MS3 is great for this application if you can get it)
5. Assemble in reverse order. But before doing so, carry out the electrical adjustment above then, (a) relocate the the RA and DEC control PCB's in the vertical plane thereby gaining access to their respective backlash Allen screws. Adjust for 20thou max clearance when in final position. Note:- the DEC adjustment screw has to be replaced for a longer unit complete with a thin bolthead as this adjustment has to be carried out with a spanner....there is no room for an Allen key adjustment here.
6. A drop of Loctite must be applied after adjustment.
7. The final part of the process is to run in the gearing. Apply 12 volts to the motor wires, either at their respective plugs or to the motor direct. Allow to run for 2 to 3 hours in each direction by reversing the battery polarity to bed the teeth engagement. Remember to release the clutches.

I need to adjust my clutch cable on a 1994 1200 sportster harley,wont fully engage and hold bike while it is in gear

That is not a difficult task. There is an adjustment on the cable at the front of the frame. This adjustment should be loosened up and the derby cover removed. After removing the derby cover (that is on the Primary on left side of bike) there is an adjustment screw on the clutch. It takes a allen wrench (dont remmember size) and an 11/16 wrench. Loosen the lock nut with the wrench and screw in the allen in about three turns. Then pull clutch lever all the way in and leave it there. Take the allen wrench and turn out the screw while watching the clutch lever when the lever comes all the way out and the screw tightens then turn it back in 1/2 of a turn and hold it with the allen wrench in that position while tightening the lock nut with the wrench. Then go to the cluctch lever and hold the cable tight looking at the gap between the end of the cable and the clutch lever housing there should only be 1/16 to 1/8 inch play there if there is more or less then adjust the cable at the cable adjustment on the front of frame of bike till you get that spec. A quick way to check the cable is use a nickel if it fits tight it is right. I hope this helps you.

Snapper won't go forward but will back

You're in luck, if your Snapper is of the type with a record player2.gif drive. Let me explain myself. Look under the motor. You should see that the shaft connects to a disc that has a rubber coated drive disc (or tire) under it. Works like this: when you are in the forward speeds, the tire is on one side of the disc. When in reverse, the tire moves to the other side. This means to me that it is neither your clutch or axle. Snapper dealers sell a tool that allows you to adjust the friction of the record (disc) against the drive wheel (tire). You loosen two allen screws on the disc where it mounts to the motor shaft, and the special tool screws into the center of the disc. With the tool installed, you screw down the jack screw to tighten the disc against the drive wheel. You then tighten the allen screws back up and you're done. Sounds too easy, 'eh? There are other variables you'll need to consider, mostly the condition of your drive wheel. The rubber on it will wear over time, so look at it carefully. If it is cracked or damaged, it should be replaced. It's easy to do. What about costs? Good question.... It's been a while, but best I remember, the speciality tool is ~$20. You'll need a long allen wrench to fit (~$2), and maybe the drive tire (~$15). The best news is that the speciality tool lasts virtually forever, and you'll use it again if you keep your Snapper
Hope that you have found this to have been helpful.
Best regards, --W/D-- Please feel free to rate this solution!

Wheels off an Allen Scythe?

The wheels are held in place by an allen screw in the centre hub, the square pin which is usually sticking out also needs to be removed. If the centre hub is stuck fast, use a plastic hammer to strike the inside of the wheel to drive it off the axle until you have a gap to get a puller in. The centre hub should be a nice loose fit when you reassemble it and use a decent grease on it.
