About this product

Model:  rowan_neq6_belt_mod_kit
Part Number:  10000013a

This kit replaces the NEQ6' spur gear drive train with timing belts. 

Reduces spur gear errors, which reduces tracking errors.

Slewing is much quieter - the 'grinding' noise that regular spur gears produce is significantly reduced. 

Uses a 6mm wide belt and does not require the slot in the mount casting to be modified (required by some other kits). 

The pulley ratio is the same as the factory gears so Sky Watcher SynScan hand controller functions are unaffected. All gain and no loss :-) 

The pulleys are designed and produced specifically for the NEQ6 mount and manufactured to a high precision (Rowan don't modify off-the-shelf parts). 

NEQ6 Belt Kit comprises of: 

2 x 47 tooth pulleys. 2 x 12 tooth pulleys. 
2 x timing belts. 
4 x intermediate rollers and mounting shafts. 
2 x RA motor and idler mouinting plates. 
2 x Dec motor and idler mouinting plates. 
Stainless steel socket head bolts. 

Rowan NEQ6 Belt Kit Fitting Instructions

An optional stainless steel tool is available to easily remove the worm shaft bearing retaining rings.

Q1. Do you have advice for tensioning the belts?

As a guide, when fitted you should just be able to twist the belt through 90 degrees. If you can twist it more or less then the tension needs to be adjusted.
