What fluid do i need in my 3066 tripod


they don't use fluid - maybe some grease in the tilt and pan of the head, but the tripod itself doesn't need any.. you might need an adjustment somewhere... I own 3 of these.

How can I fix the jerky motion of the 804RC2? What kind of lubricant can I use on the head?


Parts and a diagram can be found here: http://www.manfrottotripodparts.com/head804rc2-3.html

Silicon grease in very small quantities is the best lube to use. DO NOT use oil or liquid lubes like WD-40. These will flow and make the head messy and may "wash" the other lubes away.

Can't get it off the tripod, any ideas? J


These things can get on tight specially if it was factory installed. What you should be looking for is three or sometimes four set screws on the underside of the center column flange. You need to extend or remove the center column and look on the underside. You need a slot type screw driver that fits down inside the slotted thread and loose then right off I just take them out cause even a little bit of the set screw can bind it up tight while attempting to remove the head. Once these set screws have been removed lock the tripod head from moving in any direction and then remove the head by turning it, same way you would remove a bottle cap. Yes it's going to be tight but it will come off. There is a center stud in the column that you are unscrewing the tripod head from. Sometimes depending how hard it's been used or the environment the tripod was used it the head might need a little penetrating oil to help it along (a little) goes a long way. This should get that head off for you

The knob/screw that loosens and tightens to move the brace up and down the center base broke off. I've only had this tripod for about a year and have hardly used it.


very cheap tripod. might want to find a better tripod.. they don't have a long life expectancy as they are made for cheaper camera systems and not suited for heavy cameras,, have you thought of buying a better tripod. i don't want yo uto think i am making fun of your tripod but quantaray anything is usually not that good.. quantaray products are usually sold in packages that you buy on-line when you buy one of their lenses and they pitch a tripod in which are chinese tripods and made very cheaply.. i would not trust one of my cameras on top of a quantaray tyripod ever.. they are just too unstable.. sorry . but you may want to try a kalaimar or a manfrotto or go to craigslist or ebay and buy a used bogen or manfrotto (same tripod) for a fraction of the price of a new one and they are considered to be professional and will last for many years.. i have used the same one for over 20 years and it still works as good as it did the day i got it..

Fluid head platform is moving before the fluid


Below the head where it attached to the center column is a set of three screws. Back them out a little bit and then tighten the head, then screw those three grub screws back in to lock the head.

How do you get the head off the tripod?


There are three small set screw (grub screws) that are under the head, net to the center column. You will have to raise the center column and look under the head. These are slotted screw heads and a small to medium screwdriver should work. You don ot have to remove the grub screws completely, but you should back them out at least half way. The head will unscrew off the center column. The gray part below the head is half the head attachment and half the center column end plate so it should separate in the middle line between the two.

Removing Tripod head from center post on Manfrotto Modo 785B


I have the national geographic branded version. Here is how you remove the head.

(1) remove the center post from the tripod
(2) lock the ball head with the trigger lock
(3) grasp the body of the ball head with one hand and the center column with the other.
(4) turn counter clockwise.

If you're intending to replace the ballhead, be warned that the thread is non-standard. I have a new "plug" with a standard 1/4" thread made for free by the machinist at my job. I don't know how you would go about adapting it without such a capability.

Manfrotto Tripod Ball-grip Head 322RC2


If you look on the ring that goes around the ball, on the side by the red tension gauge, you'll see an indentation. It is just barely visible on the product shot above.

In the hole, you'll find what looks like an odd shaped bolt. It is actually a threaded post inside a nut.

Use an Allen wrench (hex key) to tighten this post.

Be careful though, a little tension here goes a long way. You should probably turn it no more than 1/8 to 1/4 turn and then test it. If it still isn't tight enough, repeat until you are satisfied.

You should probably also talk to a trained technician at somepoint to see if the loosening is indicative of a larger problem. I really wouldn't know one way or the other. I just discovered the calibration post by taking mine apart.
