Hey. I’m, trying to get the top plate of an old Flyer so I can wire a new 3G SDI cable in there. I’ve removed this little bar that braced the top of the post (marked in red) and now the whole thing seems to be loose, held on only by this threaded bar (marked in green hatching) and red knob that controls the side to side movement.
The only way I can see to continue is to remove these tiny little pins (marked in green, second picture).
I don't like the idea of dismantling such a small component. I could just try and thread it through without taking apart, not sure.
I thought I’d come here and ask first to see if anyone has taken this top plate off to replace the cabling before. I’ve not found this old Steadicam to be very well made and I’m scared of braking it if I do something wrong.
I cant work out how to attach pictures, it just keeps saying I cant attach something with that extension but I'm guessing if you've done this job you'll know what I'm talking about.
