Transciever VFO worn out?

Hi all,

I'm a bit of a vintage radio nut and have just acquired a Kenwood TS530SP rig from a fellow ham who's sadly no longer around. Anyway, he must have been an avid band-scanner, as the VFO bearing has sustained significant wear; there's quite a wobble present when it's spun across the band and it can even be rocked from side to side slightly. I'm just wondering if this is something that could be tightened up as part of normal servicing or whether replacement is the only option?

thanks, cd.

A good many of them has/had screw in bushings that you can tighten at the axial post.

Also, check in with the TS-520/TS-530 group on Yahoo. Lotsa good stuff there.
