  • Distributor Rollers

    Rx
    Have you ever noticed when you are working on your distributor rollers how they have side slop in them after awhile. If you look closely at your distributor when it's out of a machine, looking down from the front you'll notice that they are not in perfect alignment with each other. As you tighten them up you stress them side to side. We've been trying out the above setup on our machines. By taking out one of the flanges, it lets the tube seek its own center between the remaining flanges. When I put the top rollers in, I put a 1/16 spacer washer between the roller and the frame. Readjust the rollers, sometimes a little tighter than normal, and check its tracking. When making these rollers, try and get them as smooth as possible. I now have about 16 machines done this way, and if you didn't know it, you would say that it was stock.

      Jerry:
      They are home made. It took some time and effort, but the results have been good so far. Don't forget to use the 1/16 thick washer between the distributor frame and the upper rollers, both of them.

        I have used washers before to reposition the back of the carriage if it rides too close to the Index cam. (I dont like shiming the cam, as you have to also shim the trip support, the lateral arm, and the safty link rod end)

        I have found that the sealed bearing style rollers from stahls do not get sloppy.

          I use flat plastic bearings for upper eccentric rollers. I never have to worry about upper-to-lower alignment.

          If all the way back, the rear carriage roller does not line up with the main pulley, then I do shim either the front or the rear grooved (lower) roller to align.

            There were "C" washer shims you could put under the rollers to correct any alignment probrams.

            Can't remember if there was a part number for them or not though (curse of being on "B" machines too long).

            When I rebuilt the distributors (all 50 of them down to the base casting) at the Hilton way back when there were a few that had to have the indexing cam and associated followers shimmed out for one reason or another. Usually it would be due something being warped.
