How to change camber bushing on 2003 e 250 van

You need to take it to alignment shop with a good alignment tech. Because there are measurements they need to decide if you need a sleeve. So you must find a real good alignment tech that knows how to use it. The camber change is required to have the optimum settings and must be added or subtracted from the amount of camber on production camber adjuster sleeve. There's a possibility that the front end parts will be damage from impact or in just plain wear and tear and it's impossible to knock a vehicle out of alignment. You may have the best equipment in the world but it's no good if nobody knows how to use it.

Manual for TwinStar 1000mm focal length telescope and equatorial mount

Equatorial mounts need to be polar aligned to work correctly. Once the scope is polar aligned (see manual or look online for polar alignment instructions), turn on the RA motor. Loosen your RA and DEC locks and find a object you want to view, The motor should keep the object in view for a while (depends on how good the motor tracks and how good your polar alignment is.) Spending 10 minutes polar alignment on my C8 keeps the object in view for about an hour without adjustment.

Likely it is an alignment problem. Look over the machine carefully and align your vision with a pulley. Look at the other pulley ( s ) to see if they are in alignment. It could also be a mount for one of the components or pulleys that is flexing under load, knocking things out of alignment. Install new belt and rev the motor sharply as you watch the pulleys to see what is moving out of alignment. If you don't see any alignment issues, check over the belts route to see if something is moving in to the path of the belt and scoring or grooving the belt. Good luck - this will require some patience and good fortune!!

Meade LX200GPS The scope does not complete the 'Auto Alignment'

Once the scope has taken a GPS fix and knows TIME, and SITE, and you do a two star alignment your alignment stars overide any automatic alignment issues.

You could turn off the GPS put in Time, Date, and Site, do a two star alignment and everything would be fine. Centering the alignment stars is the "trick". Apparently the scope also finds NORTH OK, or the alignment stars would be way off. Since you pre-level the tripod already the software can FAIL on "tilt" and you still get good gotos.

I would not worry about it, especially since your gotos seem perfectly fine.

Message: "Press Enter to align cartridges" When I do that it starts to do the alignment, then stops and repeats the message. It also won't print.

My thought is that one or both of your cartridges are no good. The printer will not print until it knows the alignment is good.
