    Re: A-8A Counter disc seized..

    Yes, Eric, the outer disc should rotate freely on the central bronze shaft, within the limits set by the stop mechanism, whose operation will become clear once you have demounted the disc...

    I have some difficulty in visualising how the disc might have become stuck. Did you perhaps spray something into the mechanism that might have reacted with the plastic and caused it to swell? I would be inclined just to twist and lift as I am uncertain about the effect of WD40 on plastic.
