    Re: 8290 pinwheel

    Joe C; I think what your getting at is lowering the dist./ which means ablong holes? From the dist elbow to the pin wheel. Try one and see what ya get. Can't believe I haven't made a new pan design yet! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img] Unless the dist. no longer bolts to the pinwheel?

      The only adjustment I know of is to replace the upper guide rollers if they are worn. The pin wheel is suspended from the elevator frame by the guide rollers. The frame is suspended from the kickbacks by the hinge blocks.

      If the reason for asking is that you have trouble getting the distributor off its post, try this: Loosen the lower guide roller, than block up the pin wheel with 2 2x4's (one on edge). That should give you enough clearance.

        Yes Felix, youre right on the money. The whole problem is mentioned in the therad "82/90 HELP PLEASE". It describes what I'm up against at the moment. Distributor is an addirtional problem along with the table. I was just curious if there was a height adjustment on the pinwheel. I think after we get the entire machine height adjusted properly, I may be able to bring the dist. down a little more.

          82/70 Back End Assy. Installation
          1. Position Back End Assy. so that the steel kickbacks are parallel and even with wooden kickbacks.
          2. Adjust front jackscrews until top of steel kickbacks are 22 inches above the pin deck. This should result in a minimum of 3/4 inches from top of pin deck to top of front roller.
          3. Adjust rear jackscrews to make Pin Elevator gaurd vertical. Check cross level of the machine.
          4. Insert shims[approx.3/8"] between the front end and back end assy. and secure with bolts.
          5. Install next back end assy.
          6. Check allignment between back ends by placing a ball lift shaft in ball lift brackets. Proper allignment will result in a free fit. Place a level on the shaft to check even machine heights. Insert all jackscrew locks. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif[/img]
