 c) Use the 7/64 Allen wrench to loosen the clamp that is located on the ASI drive shaft. ​ 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 and slide the brass clutch plate onto the ASI drive shaft. ​ The clutch plate should slide onto the drive shaft with the milled out portion pointing away from the encoder. c) Use the 7/64 Allen wrench to loosen the clamp that is located on the ASI drive shaft. ​ 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 and slide the brass clutch plate onto the ASI drive shaft. ​ The clutch plate should slide onto the drive shaft with the milled out portion pointing away from the encoder.

 d) As shown in figure 1., slide the ASI drive assembly towards the left fine focus knob of the microscope so that the baseplate slides under the microscope. While holding the right fine focus knob 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.  Push the drive / baseplate assembly completely onto the microscope until the small black stop plate located on the baseplate, as shown in figure 2., is completely against the side of the microscope. This stop plate should be parallel with the bottom of the microscope. d) As shown in figure 1., slide the ASI drive assembly towards the left fine focus knob of the microscope so that the baseplate slides under the microscope.

 e) While holding the right fine focus knob push the clamp on the ASI focus shaft in towards the microscope so that the brass clutch plate is firmly pressed up against the silver spring washer locate on the microscope’s brass assembly. Please refer to figure 3. Use the 7/64 inch hex wrench to securely tighten the clamp. ​ **Note The Clamp Must Be Securely Tightened or the drive and clutch may slip** e) While holding the right fine focus knob push the clamp on the ASI focus shaft in towards the microscope so that the brass clutch plate is firmly pressed up against the silver spring washer locate on the microscope’s brass assembly.
