My hybrid ceramic worm wheel bearings finally arrived today so a bit more progress to report. The worm mechanisms are now reassembled and feel nice and smooth.

I've also adjusted the mesh on the idler gear as per recommendations from the EQ6 group. The recommendation is to use a thin piece of paper to set the mesh clearance. I tried a few different thicknesses and settled on 0.07 mm thickness paper as this resulted in no noticable backlash without making the mesh feel too tight.

Hopefully my replacement spacers will arrive tomorrow and I can finish putting the mount back together (just in time for the clouds by the look of it).
