 The ASI motor drive attaches to the silver horizontal adjustment bar that is attached to the base plate. The motor drive slides within two lips on either side of the horizontal adjustment bar so that it can slide along the vertical axis and is secured to the adjustment bar via two 4/40 vertical adjustment screws. The adjustment bar is secured to the baseplate with a 4x12mm horizontal adjustment screw. The horizontal and vertical adjustments allow the drive to be correctly positioned so the drive shaft on the ASI motor drive can be slid over the fine focus shaft of the microscope.  ​ The ASI motor drive attaches to the silver horizontal adjustment bar that is attached to the base plate.

This clamp is located at the end of the drive shaft as it protrudes out of the  black encoder cover. ​ Once the clamp is loose slide it back towards the encoder. While holding the right fine focus knob with one hand align the ASI drive shaft with the microscope’s fine focus shaft and slide the ASI drive shaft over the microscope’s fine focus shaft. ​ If you do not hold the right fine focus knob the microscope’s fine focus shaft may be pressed over towards the right of the microscope. ​ If this happens simply push the right fine focus knob in towards the microscope to push the shaft back.    c) Locate the adjustment bar, and the motor drive. ​ Use the 7/64" Allen wrench to loosen the vertical adjustment screws as shown in figure 6.
