  • 8270 Distributor Idea

    What would you guys think if you could put a smaller pully on the driveshaft to make the belt ride just a little lower to make the pan deeper. I don't think that the distributor would speed up any because it will only go as fast as the driveshaft turns it right? Please give me some input because if I can find somthing that will work I think I'd like to try it out on my new machines.

    If i am not mistaken, a smaller pulley on the driveshaft would slow down the belt-

      I don't think this will happen May be not sure. I also forgot that you would still have to move the belt runner to make the pan deeper.

        I think the pin rail where it rides higher than the deeper part of the pan hinders good orientation. I have thought about trimming off the top where it is above the o pan.

          Why would you like to make it slower? You will get problems with pins coming too fast from the pinwheel. Giving your distributor less time to distribute the pins. That will give you more jams. I have made a new longer driveshaft and have put an motor on my distributors, and let them run 2-3 rpm faster in order to get the pins faster away from the pinwheel. The distributor motor is wired to the backend motor, when the backend motor runs, the distributor motor runs also. Since I have put the motors on, I almost have no distributor jams any more. Mail me for some pictures.

              Agreed, smaller pulley slower speed, more pileups.

                How would making the dist slower give it less time to distribute pins? Seems to me that is the dist was going slower it would have more time to reach the pin position.

                Don't a lot of you guys have smaller pullies that Granger sells so that you can slow down the dist giving it more time for pin orientation?

                I have been playing with that idea for one of my summer projects this year.

                  Pat they slow the Pinwheel down.

                    Pat,

                    I belive Lafarge is speaking about using a smaller diameter distributor belt drive pulley, the one under the o-pan, that would make the distributor belt speed slower, however, the dist will still index at the same speed because the shaft and clutch will still be turning at the same RPM it alway has.

                    If you slow the distributor belt speed down and maintain stock pinwheel speed you will have pileups, especially when the distributor is in the corners (7 and 10).

                    The pulley most mechanics change is the PW drive pulley, going from 6" diameter to 5-1/2" or 5" diameter, changing this pulley slows the elevator wheel speed, allowing more spacing between pins on the dist, this helps with corner pileup problems when the dist is at it's shortest lenght.

                      Ok well I guess then that won't work. Might still try it for the hell of it . all I know is the pan should have been built deeper for better orientation. Not saying that it can't be done but some machines can be a headache

                        You may get away with a smaller belt drive if you use an adjustable sheave on the pinwheel drive of the BE motor. However, if you slow the pinwheel down too much (wide sheave) there will not be enough pressure when you have almost 2 full sets of pins back there. There are several good posts on here concerning pin orientation, you may want to research those if your having issues. Good Luck.

                              Another problem with using a smaller pulley in back is you will end up with a steeper incline to the bins. And you may end up with the issue of the back roller on the carriage running into the belt when the distrubutor is fully retracted in the corners.
