  • Funny now, but not at the time.

    I was doing some training today at a local center and myself and a young pinchaser were rebuilding a distributor clutch. I had the clutch on the bench with the new worm and outer clutchplate(old ones were toast). As he comes to the shop he grabs a hammer and starts hitting the new clutchplate. I said what the fu#@ are you doing this is a new plate, and then he starts argung with me that its the old one, I said NO, its the new one. Then Im thinking who cares if it old or new, why are you hitting it anyways? I think I have 14 more grey hairs then when I started.
    If it cant be fixed with a hammer, use a bowling pin.

          Or even better reverse the backend motor where you can and watch the worm pieces fly as the plate flattens out

            In fact, this place had the ball wipes on so long without changing them that the dirt was so thick you could actually peel it off in strips. Guess what we did today? We also pulled off the dust traps and vacuumed between machines.

              Don't ya love when the ball wipers get to the point they are putting more crap ON the ball than off it.....

              At a previous centre I worked in before I started there they had removed the dust traps as they "kept filling with crap" so we got rid of them ..... GOLD I tell ya GOLD!!!!

                  Thats exactly why we had to change the worm and outer plate. Dont know how long it was running like this. Pinchaser states that it was jammimg about 10 times a day. GEE I wonder why.
