  • rear roller support brackets


    I have a rear roller support bracket (ball door side) that needs to be replaced. Not sure how to do this. Whats the best way to remove the one currently welded on there? Should I grind, or cut? Rear roller dropped, the shaft busted and created a notch on the side of the machine, making the existing hole bigger! Also caused front roller to move forward into the rear of pindeck digging itself a nice little hole!
    Also does the new pit bearing support bracket need to mounted on top? can I mount it more towards the front facing the rear, thus not allowing the roller to go forward again? (sorry for the novel)

    It's one hell of a mess!
    thanks for any ideas or help.

    I drill the four 5/16 holes out first then use a chisel and chop the flange off,then poud it down flat,then bolt the new one on and your done. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img] in other words leave the welded bracket on!CRUD

      Casey: I hate when that happens!! What I do is grind off the old bracket, then bolt a new one on. You will have to drill four holes in the side af the machine. I would mount the new bracket in the original place. Be sure to only use the shortest bolts possible, due to clearance between the drive sheave and machine side. The new bracket should be mounted in the original position because of the pressure from the front roller springs and the rear roller drive belt. GOOD LUCK!!

        Thanks guys,

        I took the grinder to the old one and bolted a new one on. I could only use 3 bolts due to the fact that the old one ate away some of the side of the pit when it sheared in half. It must have been running for quite some time to shear that shaft.

          too remove scrap, simply remove small plow and take a chisel and break off the protruding part. I always rotate the retainer counter it covers from noon to 4 o'clock(instead of 9 to 1). if anyone has seen a rear roller grind itelf upward....please call me. . .and mr guiness.

                  i do it a slightly different way, i clamp a bearing to the dead centre of the hole in the machine, then place the rubber and retainer in the right position, then mark it, and drill it

                  i just get real picky on making sure that bearing is dead centre, so i don't get carpet problems.

                  never assume that its in the right place, thats where half the troubles start.
