G50X Arm maintenance

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a Tiffen G50x arm and want to make a maintenance,

does anyone know how to disassemble it step by step and which lubricant to use?

At least to clean the main bearings.

 

thanks

Typically Tiffen asks you to send it in for maintenance, however I've in the past used contact cleaner (no residue) to clean out the arm while wearing it and then giving it some ACF-50. Once I couldn't get my hands on that so I used "Tri-Flow" in a pinch but I'm not sure about it since most folks here go for ACF-50! Best of luck

"Jerry Holway has agreed to help document the breakdown/assembly/parts replacement steps for G-50 and G-70 arms. Hope to have photos/text/diagrams as needed up on the web by the end of March, so these simple procedures can be done in the field with just a t-handle allen wrencn and a socket driver (and a cyclotron).

best regards and thanks for the good posts on our 'geo' arms.

But after ten years there is no document that helps disassembly the arm to clean it even because it is very exposed to external agents how it's done. It is very expensive to send it every time in USA or UK to service the arm.
