  • front roller bracket

    Have been replacing out quite a few front roller brackets this week.
    (You know how it goes. When one goes the rest of them start to fail also.)

    When putting the new bracket on found that they seemed to catch the bottom of the pit support brace. So bent the bottom of the bracket up a bit to gain clearance. But still the bracket would catch the "L" shape lip of the brace.

    In the end up, I grinded of the L shape lip and used the hole located in the horizontal part of the kickback, beside the machine leg, to secure the brace firmly.

    Has anyone elso come across this? I'm I missing something here?

    Make sure you're using the correct one for the corresponding side. There are 4 different front roller brackets for the 4 different sides.

    Odd Common--has longer tail
    Odd Exit Side--has short tail
    Even Common--Has long tail
    Even exit--has short tail.

    The exit side ones have shorter tails as not to hit the pit support brace since they sit lower on the kickbacks.

      There are four different front roller support brackets. Somewhere down the road, someone may have installed the wrong bracket without knowing the difference.

        hmmmm, ive always wondered this....

        is there any harm in putting nothing but short ones on? I think ive always done this when i didnt have the "right" one, and i cant recall it giving me trouble...

        You would just order left and right exits..

        Im sure if im wrong, someone here will bitchslap me.

            I have also had this problem, and yes, I had the correct support on. When the front roller was on it didnt seem to rub on the crossbrace bolt.

            Pinmonkey, using the shorter tailed brackets in the place of the longer tailed ones will not cause a problem. The front roller will still be straight and level. The only difference might be is that the spring will angle down. Both long and short tailed brackets are the same size from the mounting hole to the bearing retainer.
