  • Shifter cam link

    My shifter cam links have a point 1/2 way on the curve. The ones I've seen on other 8270s don't have one. What is the purpose of said point and can I grind it off?

    Is it causing a problem?

      this must affect the opening and closing of the cells.not sure of this point. is it sticking down and touching the cam follower and as Kat says causing a problem.!

        I recently noticed the same thing. Changed one out because of it, and found the new one had the same thing, I have noticed no ill effects as of yet.

          If your shifter is hitting the the cam follower on your spot lever assy #070-002-578 the problem is not the shifter link. You will need to replace the spot lever(the "Y" shaped thing with the two cam followers).

            I can't think of a functional purpose for that point.

            Perhaps it's just an artefact of the manufacturing process.

            The link is cast (ours are at least), and then the cam follower surface must be made smooth. I notice that the point is created where two curves of different radii intersect.

            The design seemingly requires different curve radii for the two halves of the cam follower surface, so perhaps they just didn't bother smoothing off the point where the two curves meet (it would cost more if they did).

              The high spot of the cam is supposed to be there although I can't tell you the reason for it. My guess is that it has something to do with getting the RSC's to open quickly on a X-cycle but not to "slam" open.
