Broken clutch on EQ8, in need of help....☹️

Recommended Posts


Hello all,

I am not a regular poster on here, but wondered if anyone can point me in the right direction, I have a broken clutch on my EQ8 mount, see picture below, and can’t source a new one, I have sent several email out, but no luck as of yet..

Its a light weight alloy (I think as it is very light, at first I thought it was plastic) and as you can see it’s broken a piece where the adjuster bolt fits onto the ring...so will not hold at all
any ideas on where I can source one or get one made...if possible...

thanks in advance ☹️☹️

We have our resident expert Graham, on here, who is a genius at this sort of job.

I'd drop him a PM, although he's been quiet of late.
