  • Rear roller support bracket snapped

    Had one of the rear roller support brackets snap today. Fitted a new one in just under 90 minutes.

    The key today was having a really good metal drill bit ready. This is only the second one I have done in 12 years in our bowl.

    the one ON the kickback? Not the question mark one? Yeah, those suck, we drill em out and bolt em up nice with grade 8 hardware. Good job.
    The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it which the merely improbable lacks.

      Rear roller brsckets are the bane of every mechanic, especially during league time. An retired mechanic i know designed a mechanics bandaid for rear roller support failure.it works like a charm and for $40 bucks it is worth it. it allows you to get you up and running in one minute and allows continued linage till you have a chance to get a new support on. For more info.. yu know where to find me.

              We had some prior idiot WELD a few of those on. DOH! Talk about a pain in butt. Had to grind them off!

                <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">They came from the factory like that on initial installs. Bolt-ons were a replacement kit. If it was a replacement that was welded on, it seems it would be more trouble than it's worth and risking not aligning the retainer up properly. I like using the old one that's sheared off as a drill template, then grind the SOB off and bolt to kickback with heads in exit area.
