Hi everyone!

Hope you are all well and busy!

I own an ultra rig.

I just replaced my gimbal pan bearing with a new one.

My rig spins fine when its vertical, but when it goes horizontal,( tilt the lens up)...........gimbal locks itself.

I know, gimbal centring is needed,  adjusting  the  the two side screws,  turning them both on each side, 1/4 of a turn each time, etc.

BUT WHAT IF both screws ar totally unbalanced by a reason????  

What if the one is totally unscrew and the other  to an ''X''  (whatever) position?????

I am afraid, if I will not be able to start from a "default'' screw position, centric gimbal is only a mater of luck....
