    Re: Ball Lift Assembly

    Be more specific. Are you talking about the entire assembly or the ball door area. Which kind do you have PBL or Kickers? Or are you just looking for any info on the entire ball lift assembly?
    There is always more to life, but would someone tell me what it is!

        Its kind of wierd to do by yourself untill you get used to it. You have to remove the rail at the top of the lift (with lift out of the machine) you then turn it upside down and re-install it leaving the bolts loose. I usualy lay the lift on the ground with the belt laying flat on the floor. You then step on the belt with 1 foot close to each of the pulleys. Then, with one hand, pull up on hte top edge of the belt. when you have the spring sufficantly compressed, you tighten the bolt (s) on the rail. this will hold the spring compressed, and allow easy removal of the belt.

        I wish I could explain it better...lol reading this with never seeing the procedure may be hard to visualise. Good luck.

          <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">It is even easier if you secure the bolts after putting some more pressure on the belt, the spring Will get tighter and the belt more loose .
          So it goes.

            I actualy usualy use the vise, and push one side of the belt with my foot, the other I pull by hand. the description of that was even less vague than what I came up with....lol

            To show it is sooooooo much easier....lol

              no doubt, its easier to learn this watching someone else. No amount of explaining will make it clear. Best advise is just to go and do it.

              Obviously that belt has a lot of tension so be careful when de-railing it

                Hey David

                It's not all that hard. I'm only about 2 hours from you. I have to go up north and install humpbacks across a 8 lane house. And do some other installs next week. But this weekend is open if you like some help.
