  • Turret Time Delay Gear binding on??

    Hey there fellow Pinchashers (just kidding!) I got a problem with one of our American A-2s. After the 5 pin trips the tires latch the TDG to turn but then stops before the turret indexes. I already put in a new torsion latch after finding the old one was catching on the bottom of the gear. There was a washer under the latch so it was slightly to high and would stop the TDG.
    But the same problem is happening now after installing different latch without a washer. The whole turret clutch assembly is a pain in the ass to install by myself and I was just hoping for any ideas before I have to pull it tomorrow.
    Thanks for reading and any input.

    If the delay gear is not turning when the torsion latch moves away from the block on the gear you have a driving issue related to the friction disc. You could possibly even have debris in the teeth of the friction disc or delay gear teeth. Check the condition of the friction material and confirm the surface is free of oil or grease and ensure the teeth are clean and free of debris.

      Thanks for the tips I'll definitely look for that tomorrow. I have been seeing strange white "shavings" on that lane's turret clutch and the top of the moving deck. Looked like it's from the pads that rivot to the friction disc, same color anyway.
      Thank you Kanga

        You have the white nylon facings? Those have a nasty habit of glazing over. Take the upper pulley off, rough up the facings, and see what happens. Then start buying the black ones; they work much better, IMNSHO.

        If those shavings are on the top of the upper pulley, however, I'd be inclined to say they're not from the friction material, but the pins instead.

          If you're referring to the oversized black type you'll get a nasty surprise when they begin to wear. Once the contact area wears down enough the remainder of the facing will begin to contact the unmachined area and cause excess friction. The result is that the torsion latch won't be able to rotate because of the excess pressure from the delay gear block.

          I've never had any issues with the white facings. As long as you don't over tighten the rivets and the disc isn't bent you'll never have a problem. Just be sure to rub the installed facings and disc over a sheet of sand paper on a flat surface to ensure you have even contact.

            What serial # machines do you have. Big difference in the turret clutches. Completely check all linkage for wear and R&R as needed, (Pins, oilites, bushings, rollers, bearings, etc). Another good reason for energy savers. I've been out of Beloit for about 10 months, but before that I didn't replace clutch facings for over 10 years and we ran about 100 lines per week. I set mine to 30 seconds. Usually the pits were near dead quiet most of the time as all or almost all of the machines were off, (motor not running).
