I have just resurrected an old 8 inch LX10 EMC after a number of years of disuse. There is a problem with the RA lock. With the RA lock on, there is still about 2 degrees of play which means the scope will fall back a little to the dependent side instead of staying centred on target. Any solutions?

Found the solution to the loose RA. I dismantled the scope and found that of the three screws securing the RA gear housing, 2 had fallen off completely and the remaining one was very loose. I was able to resecure all three and it is as good as new.
