My radio is atleast 6 years old and the POT's have finally had it I think. So I ordered new ones from DIGIKEY. Before I start pulling things apart I want to make sure that it is possible to recalibrate everything.

How do I recalibrate my 14MZ?

There is no native calibration software in the 14MZ. It requires a return to the service center.

At one time there was a bootleg copy of a partial service program out there that doesn't even work with current firmware version. I would suggest you don't try to go there because I know for an unequivocal fact that the program in question has the rope required to allow you to figuratively hang yourself and destroy a model.

Thank you Mr. Ben for the information. I will try and track down a European service center to get it fixed faster.

Additionally they will put the new white pots in which are supposed to add a bit or two resolution and last forever. I am amazed that you got 6 years out of the original pots.

Great News...

Robbe will not service a NONE Robbe version Futaba. So I have to send it all the way back to Hobbico for service. Hopefully there is not a long turn around time.

Nah, they will typically turn it around within 10 days of receipt.
