Stromberg Carlson "Older Type" Dial Disassembly

The topic will show how to completely take apart an "older type" Stromberg Carlson for cleaning and proper lubrication during assembly.

The difference between an "older" and "newer" type SC dial is here determined as such:

1)  the older type has 2 screws holding the dial mechanism plate and pile up to the dial case.
2)  the "newer" type as 3 screws holding the dial mechanism plate to the dial case (the pile up is not attached to the plate)

Since the finger wheel, finger stop and number ring on SC dials vary from dial to dial, instructions for removing those parts are not included in this topic.

This topic only address disassembly of the back side of the dial once the front side parts have been removed.








WOW! Thanks for the great detailed info. That is a dial I am not very familiar with so next time I will have a guide. Thanks for taking the time to post that.
