 As shown in figures 5-10 above, install the ASI z-axis drive onto the microscope'​s fine focus shaft. ​ Once you have securely tighten the drive shaft clamp as shown in figure 10 rotate the left fine focus knob.  No drag should be felt.  If no drag is felt tighten the Horizontal and Vertical adjustment screws as shown in figures 7 & 8.   ​Recheck the alignment by turning the left fine focus knob.  No noticeable drag should be felt.  If drag is felt at any one point with in a full rotation loosen the Horizontal and Vertical adjustment screws. Then slide the motor drive up and down, forward and backward slightly while turning the left fine focus knob until it is in the position where minimum drag is felt.  Secure the motor drive into position by tightening the horizontal and vertical adjustment screws at this point. ​ Since the drive is usually self aligning this second set is usually not required. As shown in figures 5-10 above, install the ASI z-axis drive onto the microscope'​s fine focus shaft. ​ Once you have securely tighten the drive shaft clamp as shown in figure 10 rotate the left fine focus knob.  No drag should be felt.  If no drag is felt tighten the Horizontal and Vertical adjustment screws as shown in figures 7 & 8.   ​Recheck the alignment by turning the left fine focus knob.  No noticeable drag should be felt.  If drag is felt at any one point with in a full rotation loosen the Horizontal and Vertical adjustment screws.

 Locate the cover and install it on the drive as shown using the Allen wrench and the supplied screws that are in the drive plate. ​ Before tightening the screws make sure the cover is positioned so that it does not rub against the outer clamp as shown. ​ Once the cover has been installed the original knob can be installed onto the protruding shaft. ​ Note that the slots on the shaft mate with the plastic tabs on the knob. Locate the cover and install it on the drive as shown using the Allen wrench and the supplied screws that are in the drive plate. ​ Before tightening the screws make sure the cover is positioned so that it does not rub against the outer clamp as shown. ​ Once the cover has been installed the original knob can be installed onto the protruding shaft. ​ Note that the slots on the shaft mate with the plastic tabs on the knob.
