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.

Optional Extractor Tool

An optional HEQ5 Pinion Gear Extractor tool is available to allow
the pinion gear to be removed easily from the motor.

The kit includes:

  • 2 x 47 tooth pulleys. 2 x 9 tooth pulleys.
  • 2 x timing belts.
  • 2 x intermediate rollers.
  • 2 x 5mm mounting shafts.
  • 1x 8mm white acrylic cover spacer
  • 6x stainless fixings.
  • Fitting instructions.
