This kit replaces the factory spur gear drive train with timing belts.
The pulley modification reduces the spur gear errors that are typical and
therefore reduces tracking errors. The belts also make slewing much quieter
eliminating the ‘grinding’ noise that the standard spur gears produce.

The pulley ratio is the same as the factory gears. This means the
Synscan hand controller is unaffected by this upgrade. All Synscan
functions will operate as before.

Highly Recommended Optional Extractor Tool

An optional HEQ5 Pinion Gear Extractor tool is available to allow the pinion gear to be removed easily from the motor. If you do not have a fully equiped workshop we highly recommend that you purchase the correct size pinion gear extractor tool for your mount.
