  • Eccentric problems?

    Make sure that the slot and latch are clean of grease. Also check the roll pins, and have a little oil on the uni-ball.

        All of the above and also the eccentric latch finger isn't worn to the point that it does not smoothly go in and out of the eccentric. Of course there could be a problem with the shuttle operator not rigidly locking the trip lever down to trip the eccentric for spotting.

          Check that the latch still has enough grease for the latch to slide freely but not too much so that the latch gets glued into the pocket, make sure the bearings are not floged out and there are no rough or sharp corners on the top of the pocket.

          It would be much quicker and easier to just remove the eccentric and rebuild it, should only take around 15 minutes

            Hmmm, I remember having this problem once, and the usual suspects didn't apply. Turned out a roll pin in the latch assembly had sheared in half. Can't remember which one...
