    I have a Toyo 45D with a cracked mount at the bottom of the rear standard.
    To repair/replace it, I need to get the mount off the rail. But to do that I first need to get the rear standad off the mount.
    When I turn the focus knob, the rail goes front/back till it hits a stop, and that stop keeps me from getting the standard off the mount.
    Can anyone tell me how to get the standard off the mount?

    thanks
