    Anyone know how to properly maintain an Ajak motor? It has a screw on top. Should I put some kind of grease through it? Does it need to be cleaned first from any old lube or do I just apply in it new grease? It seems to be working fine but does it need to be greased or lubed now and then?

    No maintenance required. Don't touch that screw! It adjusts the primary worm drive inside the motor.

    optical switch 009.JPG If you want you can remove the reed switch cover plate (three screws) under that is a magnet wheel. It is held onto the shaft with friction. You can grab the wheel in the center with a pair of pliers and pull it off. Under that is that primary worm gear drive. You could put some grease in there. Not too much.

    There are not too many of these out there nowadays. Maybe with some luck you can find one attached to a HH cband dish. I was actually very very lucky to find one in Puerto Rico.
    Good Luck!
