  • Trip rod goes up but not back down

    Ive got a machine that the trip rod will go up but not back down. I replaced the trip rod assembly, replaced all of the bushings, rebuilt the clutch and have had no luck. Ideas?

    When the trip arm in stuck up, back off the inner clutch plate so its tab is no longer touching the finger of the trip arm. Does it go back down then? If it does not, then there is a bind in the trip arm. Possibly the trip arms' rear mounting bracket. Or maybe the rocker arm's spring is broke or missing or out of its slot?
    If it does go back down, then there is too much spring tension on the clutch, no grease on the trip fingers and inner clutch plate tab, ot the tab and/or trip arm fingers are worn to a point where grease on the fingers does no good.
    There! Try to NOT work now!

      Has to be too much clutch tension. I did that yesterday but didn’t think about backing off the clutch tension. I replaced the rocker arm spring.

        I've had that issue caused by a sharp edge left on the clutch finger from the manufacturer. it was digging into the trip rod finger and not sliding down off of it. Took a file to it and readjusted the triggering mech. and made sure there was a whisper of grease on the fingers.
