  • 90's solenoid fix

    This is a quick disconnect of solenoid and rest of spotting mechanism. The pin part # is 030-001-231, x-washer # is 963-200-002. A small ty-rap must be applied to the x-washer end of pin so x-washer won't get caught between the plunger and the rail. We applied this to our 30's spotting mechanism several years ago.

    Good mod. How 'bout a mod to make it easier to mount that little bastard?

    I wish you'd of posted this last week. Now I have to go digging around in the garbage can. I just threw away a small drawer full of those pins, the other day, when Mechanic 82-30 & Dirt Man were at my place & ID'd them as 30 parts. (82-70's replaced the 82-30's in 1974. Still have a lot of misc 30 parts around)

      Sorry Dutch,
      Was going to post that thing about a month ago but I forgot how to downsize and transfer my pictures. The geek that showed me how to do this was too busy to come over so had to figure it out on my own.

        No problem. I haven't taken out the shop garbage yet. I'll dig them out today.

              Have been meaning to get back to this. The solenoid bracket is also hard to remove and replace. Here is what I do. Use the same flat bar fix that is applied to the angle fix. After measuring and welding your bolts to the flat bar make sure the fix will fit the mounting holes on the main frame. Then tac weld the piece to the plate that holds the solenoid. Now you can change the whole unit in five minutes, three minutes if you are good at replacing x washers. We have a 10" pair of needle nose pliers to reach in and grab those babies.

              We have a spare unit made up and ready to mount. Bracket, solenoid and spring mechanism.

                So your mounting screws go down, instead of up? Got a pic of it in place?

                    Raymond,

                    That's especially funny for me... Most of my 70's are still dual solonoid. Almost all of the R/S solonoids have welding rod in the lower end of the link [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]
