Electric Aerial

Postby Tom » Mon Dec 26, 2005 9:26 pm

Packed in today. Goes up, but not down without assistance to get it started. I presume the stopper at the bottom of the nylon guide has broken/worn off. Please someone correct me if I'm on the wrong wavelength!
Ordered a new mast and going to have a go at fitting it, anything I need to be careful/watchout for? (springs and the like, don't want to go searching down the street for lost parts)
Any help will be gratefully appreciated.

Cheers, Tom.

No springs as I remember. Hell, if I could do it...

Cheers for that, Guys :D
Feeling a bit more confident now :oops:

Gonna just play CD's until the postman comes, in case I forget to lower the aerial and some lout decides to see how far it'll bend.

All The Best For The New Year!

I supposed you've greased the mast and sent it up and down a few times? (ooer missus :oops:)

Yeah, my mast is always well greased :oops:

Its making a different sound when its fully extended :? , like the motor is running on empty before it stops. Then if I push it in a little :oops: it'll go back down.
My first thought was it was just stuck at the top, but there was no stickyness at all :wink:

Cheers Graeme,
Tom.

From the description you're giving, I'd say your diagnosis is spot on.
