Below the tripod head you will see what looks like a "sandwich" of two chromed pieces of metal.  The lower one is the top of the tripod's center column.  The upper one is the bottom of the tripod head. Using wrenches or other tools, unscrew the upper one counterclockwise to separate it from the lower one. There is a 1/4" threaded stud which holds them together.
If you plan on replacing the head with a pro head like a Manfrotto, you will need a reducing bushing.  Most heads expect a 3/8" stud, and this tripod's thread is a standard 1/4" stud. The adapters are available through Wolf, Adorama, B&H, and the like.

I found the info on the following site worked for a Slik 35D tripod, and I expect it would work for most tripods. http://eit.tamu.edu/TDD/tddtripo.htm

Manfrotto 785pl

It may be possible. Unscrew this bit from the legs and see if you can reattach it to the rest of the head. Otherwise you will need to purchase a new head, but the legs will be fine.

When I bought the Slik 88M in Singapore (1988) I was shown how to get the camera lens very close to the subject on the ground (macro photography of plants). I remember it worked perfectly and have the...

Hi - had one myself years ago - excellent 'pod. Firstly, the auxiliary screw mount on the leg is for whatever purpose you choose - standard 1/4 " thread, so you can mount a flash gun on it. However, combined with the rest of your query (IIRC), to lower the viewpoint you firstly undo the leg locks where the bracing struts meet the legs - this enables you to lower the 'pod to its lowest level (don't forget to raise the centre column).
Then, unscrew the entire head from the top of the centre column, and mount it on the screw mount we spoke of earlier - this is about the lowest you can get it. Drawback is that you need to kneel down to see through the viewfinder. Hope this helps.

Tripod head

If the head is loose on the tripod follow these instructions:
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.

If screws came out elsewhere, we will need to know the model number of the head that came apart.

Head will not tighten on AF2100 Pistol grip

one of the treads in the tripodas head is broken try unscrewing the grip the other way to remove it, then examine the grip, if one of the threads on the part of the grip that screws in to the head, is broken then you might be able to get a new grip, and that might work, but there might also be damaged threads inside the tripod head, in which case you neet to replace the head if you can, but if you cant, then I do not think that you can repair that tripod

HOw to reverse Tripod reversible 3/8" - 1/4" screw

Hi there, welcome to FixYa.

That screw is just screwed into the top plate. Just unscrew it. If it's really difficult, you can use a pair of pliers to hold the screw, then turn the pliers. - Make sure you don't damage the threads that screw into the camera. You can help prevent this by using a cloth like a t-shirt. The cloth will help prevent damage incase you have to grip it hard. Just remember to be carefull.

Thanks for coming to FixYa.

701RC2 going on 745B sticks

Hey SkipHall,
As in most Manfrotto tripods this tripod should have 3 set screws underneath the head mounting surface. Unscrew these set screws and you should be able to unscrew the current head off the tripod by holding the center column and turning the head counter clockwise. Installation of the new head should be the reverse. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
