  • Changing Bracket support

    Is there a special puller to pull the spring (000 021 204) for the bracket support assembly for the front roller? I have changed a couple and by myself it's a pain in the a**. I'm sure there must be an easier way to change this part. Thanks Joe

    We have 2. One is a carraigeway tube, ground down on one end to fit easily over where the spring sits.

    simply put the "tool" tool in position. Put the spring on the tool with no tension. Pull the tool back towards you, and the spring will slide onto it's home. We've had this tool a couple of years now. On average we get all springs on it 3 attempts. The other tool is a ground down dissy driveshaft. Same principle. There was a thread a while ago on these tools, but I cant find it.

      Yes there is a easier way. Buy the spring tool that stahl's sell. #000-021-204T While your getting....might as well get the Bracket remover tool as well. (no part # for this) Those support bracket's can almost seem welded to the pivot pin. These two tool's make short work out of that job.

        Ditto from old school,the stahls tool holds the spring in position with pressure on it, as long as you dont have to replace the spring it slides right back into place. If you havent used stahls before, get there catalog, its great shopping!

          I’ve used several different tools for the front roller springs. My favorite…

          ½“ conduit – 24” long

          On 1 end, cut or grind ½ of the tube away for a length of ½”- 9/16”.

          Hook the spring on the front roller support. Put the other end of the spring on the tool. Hook the end of the tool that you ground off onto the spring pin. Pull the handle of the tool toward the pin wheel. The spring will slip right on.

          I’ve used the spring tool from Stahl’s. I’ve had springs shoot off of it. It scares the hell out of me. The bracket removal tool from Stahl’s, however, is one of the greatest things since chocolate covered cherries. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

            I have it pretty easy because my machines are jacked up quite high. I cut a 5" piece of wire and twist the ends, connect it to spring, then take 5 more of the same springs hooked end to end, attatch one end to wire, have a friend with a spring puller sit behind machine and pull springs, I slide under machine and slide spring on stud. Takes about 30 seconds, and can be done with bounceboard still in.

                  I love the Stahls tool...I would recommend 2, if you like to pull everything apart and clean and inspect (as I do) before puting anything together...If you dont care about doing one side at a time, 1 woll work.

                      Didnt vantage have a tool like that in the late eighties. Or has stahls had that around for this long? It was accompanied by a tool to pull of frozen brackets. The other tool was a cylinder that had a notch in it to hook on the zerk. It also had a threaded end that had a screw that you tightened to pull the bracket off. I prefer the cut conduit to pull springs on. Takes only a few seconds to get them on.
