Seems like my idol motor and gear box is failing. Opts and switches all check out. But it seems when theres 3 balls locked in or sometimes 2 it doesnt have the torque to rotate the balls, also when I turn it by hand there no tension. I'm guessing it's the gearbox?

Is the set screw “hex head” tight to the flat part of the shaft? Can you easily pull the idol head up and off?

No all of that is tight. I even wedged a flat head screwdriver in where the optos are and was unable to turn the idol once I had the shaft locked.
