You did tighten the clutches?
If you did the DEC gears are either loose and not meshing or have broken.
Dr. Clay in Arkansas can repair this scope but it would cost several hundred dollars-- Celestron will probably sell you the parts to fix it. Here is their web site. You can also return the mount to them for repair.

This is a simple reflecting telescope-- put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser-- take it outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

A vintage one eh? I have a later model, very good scope. Have a look at (you can place a WANTED here too)....
But why a vintage C8? Nostalgia? There are better buys in newer models. Beware tho there was a short period when they were all s***t. Details here
