  • Removing hook selector with detector on machine

    It seems to me that all that is needed is to knock the roll pin out of the flag selector and remove it from the shaft and to knock the roll pin out of the strike cam follower. It would seem that this would allow the shaft to be moved toward the 10 pins side and the hook selector is free.

    Am I missing something?

      That was ridiculously easy. I don't agree with pushing the shaft toward the 7 side. Much simpler to push it toward the 10 side.

        If you have a spare detector, why wouldn't you simply replace the detector?

          Rather more work to replace the whole thing, isn't it?

            Based solely on time, probably yes.
            Personally, I would spend the extra 10 minutes and remove half a dozen pins and a few bolts and replace the entire detector.
            Gives me the chance to clean where I can't normally reach and install a shiny new refurbished unit.

              I've done it both ways (swap detector and pulling just the D-shaft).

              If the detector was rebuilt recently and the RHS bearing just broke I preferred doing it in the machine.

              The ONE caveat in removing the D-shaft in the machine is if you happen to have any brass shims on the shaft. Some detector shafts are shimmed to keep the selectors aligned with the cams. This happened to me once and I wasted almost an hour trying to get a shaft back in before I realized two shims next to the 180 stop selector had slipped just 1/8" and blocked the shaft from going back in.

                Forgive me if wrong but, isn't this the shaft that the strike cam follower is pinned to?
