  • dizzy makin me dizzy

    This one I haven't seen here yet.
    I have one lane where the distributor hangs up and double feeds on the 8 pin, then won't index to the one pin after feeding the 9. I've cleaned the tubes and rollers, rebuilt the clutch (twice) and adjusted it. Every other pin drops fine. Need a clue here. Anyone got a thought?

    Your spring is gone or has broken and fallen off that runs at a 45 degree angle from the bottom of the index cam to the area where your dist belt makes the S turn.

    If it is there your rollers may be adjusted to tightly. Add a kicker spring to it and see how it runs.
    Pinspotters do not break down when they are not running!

      In addition to what Mike has already mentioned, check the adjustment of the eccentric rollers and the trip cable/rod. this adjustment is critical at the 8 and the 9 because the ass of the carriage wants to sag down and make the carriage tubes and the trip stop rod non-parallel. Adjust the rollers and cable per Service Manual procedures and go from there.

        Posted before I went to work......Took 10 minutes to fix it [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

        Main spring was, in fact, gone. Also, linkage was out of adjustment. Replaced and adjusted...all OK now. Essentially a brain cramp from staring at the sucker for so long. Thanks guys for the help. Much appreciated.
