      the front roller for the carpet... it popped out of the brackets... I'm having a hard time rotating the brackets back to get the roller set in. I'm sorry I can't help much more than that.

        Start the bracket back with a pair of channel locks. Then put a pair of vise grips on the top part of the “C”. Pull back with vise grips until you can pin it back.

          Pry it back with a crow bar and put a quarter inch bolt in the little hole in front of the roller.

              ok... I got the pins in... and now I can't get the roller bar back into the brackets... it seems like I can't pull it forward enough, any ideas?

                Channelocks are a godsend if ya don't have the flag handy. Sometimes the front rollers are tight to get in, I usually just get the bearings near the hinges and pop it in to the cups with a big long screwdriver or something along those lines, just get in behind the roller and pry so it goes forward and pops in.
                All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

                  Drop the rear roller with the J hook, this will give you a little more room to work with.

                  It's up under the plow opposite the ball exit.
                  Please.....follow the instructions!!

                    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Make sure the carpet didn't get trapped under the guides at the rear... it makes it shorten up... also... reach under and make sure you don't have a pin stuck under the bounceplate... that causes excessive tension on the carpet, too.

                      I usually use a Cresent wrench to pull my front roller hinges back if a roller pops out never tried the channel locks.

                        I have always used a Shifting Spanner, about 12 inch, but you seem to have a different name for the spanners to us. Maybe adjustable spanner would be a more apt name.

                        I find the adjustable spanner much safer than the Flag.

                        Ottomatic use a big screwdriver to pop the roller in on the opposite side to the ball exit, with the help of your knees.

                          Oh, I must add, Ottomatic if your still trying to get that roller in, than you certainly are persistant.lol.

                            Willey, I think anything is safer than those bloody flags!!!

                            I don't think my flag has been off the tool board in 10 years! Get them mole grips on it - I guess mole grips are called 'channel locks' in the US.

                              I use two spring pullers on each side of the roller and lift, pull and drop it in the hatchets. This will save your fingers and a lot of good swear words for future use.
                              There is always more to life, but would someone tell me what it is!
