Tamron 24-135mm 190D Aperture

Hi .
New here and hoping this will be the place to share and ask..

I bought a Tamron 24-135mm (Tamron 190D) that had a strange clicking sound when zooming or focusing. At times it makes the noise alone. I have changed the zoom and focus brushes and also the flex cables for these functions. Still the same problem.

All that was left to change was the Aperture flex cable but I can't figure out how to get the Aperture barrel out to change the flex cable. It is striped down to that point. Can Someone please clue me in? HELP HELP hehehe

Garry the new guy.

I buy , repair , sell and convert manual lenses. Destructive conversions.( FD to EOS ect.)

Well , I just became retarded or is that spelled retired? lol I have been a tech for many years but the better part was in audio video electronics. I became interested in Photography electronics about 2 years ago. I asked my question because I know from experience how easy it is to destroy an older lens. one mistake and you can't get the parts because they are not available..
Thanks !

Welcome, Garry.

If you haven't already discovered it, the Articles Forum here has useful info -- and you might find stuff to contribute there too.

And here's a useful resource I found on Amazon books a few years ago.
