I have a Von Weise 24" actuator that is badly rusted. Does anyone have disassembly instructions/pictures that help me bring it back to life?

after i cleaned mine up ( of rust ) it rusted up again
if i read correctly it was coated with a special coating , Zinc i think so once you clean it , it will probably rust up again .... unless you paint it with something ( haven't found anything yet) but looking toward something like brass lacquer or staybryte type of spray on paint.

one thing that needs grease is the acme nut/bushing thats inside the arm shaft. so once its apart.... grease it up good.

on a model v76-5
ok the block starting from the magnet wheel

little green , little orange , big white , big red

the big white , big red can be reversed and it will go in the other direction
so if big white , big red get you west when you press the east button then reversing them will get east when you press east button.


hope this helps
