  • My wrench is bigger than JJ's

    I am using a 15/16 inch wrench. What am I fixing?

    Come on Jerry, take your best shot. :p :p

    You are:

    a) Adjusting the crack pipe deal for the sweep. The one that's mounted on the frame for 66/270 adjustment.

    b) Adjusting nut for Super Clutch on distributor.

      Good thing you didn't say open ended wrench. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img] .

      Seriously though. Anything that looks over 3/4" I break out the big a$$ monkey wrench and beat the hell out of it with the sledge hammer. If that doesn't work I cut it off with the torch.

      Eccentric bolt???

        I keeping with the last 'wrench question':

        The other wrench did not properly seat the simple solution into the pinnie's head after beaning him with it... you reached for a larger one to 'drive the point home'.... :p

            I guess the street elbow on combo gearboxes is just for hash then...

            How about adjusting a Super Rudder Drive Link?
            I'm with JJ - break out Big Bertha and a Sledge.

            Or maybe it's for wireway cover screws. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]

              Are you guys total moron's or what? Obviously you're repairing our "state of the art" (1971) AMF double rail seating. I repair, tighten, weld, and duct tape these baby's on a daily basis, and a 15/16" wrench is absolutely critical! Still the most comfortable seating ever produced. Why? Because the seats (and supports) move right with you. You see, the crumbling ground supports and numerous chair welds allow your body to melt right into the seat and allow the bowler total freedom of movement. You're not always sure it's going to move in the direction you want or prefer....but take my word, it will move. I've also found the 15/16" a most valuable tool at lunch time, when my fingers are just to greasy to grasp the mini corn dogs. Those little suckers fit in the wrench perfectly, and hold on tight no matter what sauce your dippin' into. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

                Congratulations Kat. You have won the all expense paid trip to LA, California. Sponsored by your employer. Well done.

                The adjustment that I was making was the crack pipe on the front end frame for the sweep.

                I was adjusting the springs on the table yoke and when I cycled the machine I heard the sweep slam down on the 7 pin side when it whent from 66 back out to 270. I looked further and saw the 'Kat's crack pipe' twisting all over the place.

                All the answers were great. Next
