  • Need Humpback P/N

    Good evening all.
    I have 2 humpbacks with lift arms that have the rubber basically GONE. They are very badly worn away, and I was looking in my lil part books that Lifelong gives you with each Humpback kit, but they do not show a number for this part. Anyone know what this number is? I'd like to order two of them to replace these. Currently I have cut strips of distributor belts contact cemented in place of the rubber, but I dunno how long they're gonna hold up.
    Thanks for any help.
    Bob

      I have scraped the remaining rubber off the lift arm and use Napa rubberized cork (the same that is used for Brunswick ball wheels) or EBN's kicker strip also works well. Use contact cement. If you use the 1/8 cork, glue two strips about 3/4 wide the entire length of the lift arm on the outer edges of the lift arm, then a wide piece over the top. I cut the wide piece wider than the width of the arm and wrap it under the lift arm. P.L. contact cement works best for me. When done, it will have an indent in the middle to cradle the ball. It works BETTER and lasts just as long or longer the the original. You will be amazed how well it works..Bill
      Yeah but, We've always done it that way.

        Forgot to mention but i'm sure you already know that the lift arm MUST be J shaped not slightly S shaped or you will have that 'dead spot' that king explained about a while back. Humpbacks work great for us. I also use two 5/8 collars on the upper yoke by the Xmas tree bumper to make the whole unit rigid.

              The cork idea is great. I will try that!

                You can also use the rubber pads that are used in spotting cups.

                  I tried the liners from the spotting cups. The balls just sit at the bottom of the lift. They have no grab at all once you get a ball with oil.

                    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Bg, if you would like I can send you a roll of material that was damaged during manufacturing and see if it works. If Brunsamf says it works I bet it does. He’s a pretty sharp guy.
