  • Problem Distributors

    Every house has a few problem distributors.

    I have slowly used the Stahl's pin orientor on my worst distributors.

    They do eliminate the pileups due to poor orientation.

    They have the King's endorsement.

    Just as a side note, I loved that specific dist. belt, too bad Stahls dosent make it anymore. Yes, it would shed until broke in, but it would grab anything!!

      That has to be one of the best "mod" items ever made for the 82/70. It should have been thought of a long time ago, and incorporated into the 'spotter's design. The orientor pins stay in exact relation to the wheel at all times. instead of moving like they do now.

      Two thumbs up for that little beauty... can't wait to convert all my machines to them.

          Make 'em then! They're not hard to do... if you have the time to do it, it's not rocket science. 4 3/8 coarse nuts, 2 long 3/8" bolts with the heads cut off for orientor pins, some 12 or 16-ga steel for the frame, 2 1/4-20's and nuts to hold the crosspiece together, and a bent piece of iron with 2 holes in it that will match up to the oiler pot bolts to mount it.

          Not hard, just a bit time consuming so you get them all exact and alike.

            they elimante not only pileups but solve all other problems.such as head first pins on the distributor and also resolve pins over shooting the side of the distributor...I highly recomend it I only had 1 problem machine that had pileup problems I put this gadget on that machine and have only had 1 pileup on this machine since it was installed and that was 6 months ago!!!! I highly endorse the use of this product

              where do the posts from the pan go? Did you break them off?
              The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it which the merely improbable lacks.

                If you are that strong, be my guest...lol, most of us just cut them!!! (massive bendage, even with the help of a pin for leverage, too much work for this old fat man)

                  they dont work with twisters, i have had a pin sit across the whole affair, i am lead to believe they are awesome with proper pins tho (twisters are slick and dont come off the k-pan in the same place avery time

                    I sure hope that mod works because if it doesnt all your orientor pans are trash since you have to remove the posts.

                      Clutch, Smokie just bent them down, so if we dont like them, we cna bend them back. (the hole in the bottom of the pins fits perfectly) I was just being a smart a$$ in th earlier post.

                            Yeah that was my original idea but I found somthing that works even better. You take a peace of friction tape two inches wide by three inches long and put it on your oreintation pan to make the pins roll out of the pinwheel which inturn makes the pins turn befor they can fall off the distributor I'm lucky if I have two to three pinjams caused buy orientation a week. You do have to keep the tape clean, I use a small wire brush to clean the tape but it won't scar the bellys of the pins. The stuff I'm using is made by 3m it was about 30.00 a roll of 60foot. not a bad price to pay for a problemsolver. The best part is that you can set your kidney pan in two or three diffrent positions and it doesn't affect in any way.

                              Lafarge's idea works too.....I have used Brunsjunk kicker strips before...it is amazing.......however it does not solve the head first pin dilemma as does the Stahl's apparatus.
