  • Pin gate locking

    Pin gate locks and holds the 5 pin from dropping.... latch is not worn... any ideas?

  • #2
    a loose cross conveyor hanging down can cause one to lock.Standing behind the machine will running watch the
    belts to see if one of them is hitting the pingate.

        check your turret indexing cam bolts. Might have loose bolts in the area of the cam for the 5 - pin

          Safari:
          The five pin position is the hardest one to hold for the pingate, change the strap and the pin and readjust.

            That's because the firmest stop when indexing is at the five pin.

            Have you checked/replaced the roll pin/bolt in the pin gate latch?

                An aside:
                If you don't have a solid nylon index roller installed-do so.

                  the "flick-test" never fails. try that and see if it locks at all when trying it like 10 times in a row. if it locks ONE time, change strap and bolt/roll pin

                            Strap....Open your Service Parts Catalog (Green Book) Turn to page 123. Find index #T89 The part number is 12-150057-003

                            Ok it's also called Latch Link. You can find the adjustment in the Manual. Page 3-40 #9. That has a decent picture also

                              Pingate strap. Here is a collection of different ones. The square corner means good. The sloping one is worn.
