    1. Distributor post is not level. If it's that wacky, you can probably see the tilt on the distributor.
    2. Clutch tension is too tight.
    3. Stop blades need some grease.
    If it's the latter two, you would probably see double-indexing and jams elsewhere too. Especially at 7 and 10.

      Or maybe the distributor is not centered on the 1 and 5.
      Or maybe someone has put a front roller spring on opposite the safety link spring [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]

          Dirt, you're a riot! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

          Seriously, a quick fix, until you can find the problem, is to take a wire tie and squeeze the spring on the back, 10-pin side, maybe 3 - 5 loops of it, together. It will make the swing less severe, and you won't have that pin falling through that empty space.

          If the B/E motor weldment is not "plumb", it can put tension on the dist at the "3", and when she "lets go", -sproing-...! We had that problem, and when I jacked up one side of that B/E motor, the problem went away.

          A good clue that's the problem, is the dist "wobbles" as it's idling at the "1" pin pocket. I think they all do a little, but if it looks like it moves more than a couple inches, there IS a problem.

          Bowl-Tech guys, YOU helped me with that a while back. I hope this returns the favor...if it works...

                make sure to check the 4 bolts that holds the dist bracket on are tight. I have had that problem a couple of times ..so now everytime i see a dist. swing thats the first thing I check.

                  -check to make sure balls of the u-joint are not bottoming out in the horseshoe. (sliding in all the way into and binding against back of horseshoe)

                  -remove one of the washers off of the ball joints, to make the ball spread narrower

                  -check horseshoe for groove, apply lots of grease in the horseshoe/balls. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/usflag.jpg[/img]

                    Quirky thing, ain't it?

                    Even a BRAND NEW machine, I don't care if it's an AMF, Via, Xima (sp?), they are succumb to the dreaded 3 to 2 sproing! Lampie, I think it was you, who posted the solution. I had to dig, and sift to find it, but man, it took care of it, and (dropping into Yoda-like voice, the Force strong in this one)..."Grateful I Am, That So Lucid You Are...(echo, echo)!"

                      Will.....the problem can also be the pin too close to the trip arm when it moves.....the weight of the pin out that far on the carriage acts like a lever and makes the distributor swing too much.
