  • Stash or Trash #6

    Damn, this is a tuff crowd.

    Stash-it or Trash-it?

    This one is very dangerous if you put it on the wrong handed machine.
    Trash it!

      If it was rotated just a little more so the end of the split wasn't showing, I'd say it looks like a piston from a diesel engine... [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

      But you're right... they tend to take themselves apart (quickly) if applied to the wrong side...

              That is a spring-type U-joint! I love those - no moving parts! They never wear out.

              Word is, those might be made again by a certain company I work for. Just a rumor.

                Chad,
                I don't like the U-joint showed above but I'm glad you recognise your own product.
                Talking about the big V..,I do like the pitbull u-joint, they don't last very long but they run very smoothly and they're not that expensive.
                Does anyone have experience with the Bull Dog u-joint(I think they come from Universal Revolutions-Chris), they look the same on paper but I haven't used one yet.
                I still hope that there comes a time we don't need a U-joint at all..

                          Well, the control panel on my machines have two cutouts on them... one is marked DIST STEPPER ZERO, and the other is marked DIST CB. I'm not going to deny that these machines are mutts, but the panel looks like every other '70 I've seen...

                          C'mon... with a little ingenuity and some creative welding (and maybe some duct tape and coat hangers) it shouldn't be too much of a problem to motorize the distributor...

                            GMAN,
                            Sounds like you have converted "A"'s. Do they have stepper chassis? Dist zero controlled a stepper in the chassis on the "A"'s and "CB" was a circuit breaker for the motor that moved the dist from side to side.

                              I think these machines were cobbled together before they bought them (they were purchased as reconditioned lease units)... the backends or panel overlays might have been from an earlier machine, but the chasses on them are standard 82-70 5-board units that we upgraded with MK-70s. No stepper is (or ever was, as far as I know) in the chassis...
