  • An issue sliding on my Moving deck scissor cam

    Hey guys, so I am in the process of putting on a new moving deck scissor cam. I have gotten the cam on almost all the way, it looks like it might even be all the way. Hard for me to tell, but it looks like there is a tiny lip on the shaft that is preventing it from sliding back further, so as far as I know, it's on all the way. The issue being, is that the cam followers only half away aline with the cam. So only half the follower would be making contact. If of course confuses me. And I wrong about thinking that the lip is supped to stop it? Or is it supposed to slide onto it? If it is back all the way where it is supposed to be, then why are all the followers not aligned? Thanks for y'alls time

      As mentioned above,

      Did you put spacer on first ? cam goes against it..You did not put cam on backwards did ya? Hub should face outside..

        Hopefully you are using all thread method to install cam on the 1:1 shaft, and not using the force of a hammer to install.
        There is light at the end of the tunnel - just be sure it is not a train.

          If that is a new cam, does it have the split hub?

            It is a new cam with a split hub. And I am not aware of the threaded method. Please do tell, this is really racking my brain. Oh, and plus, I don't recall seeing any sort of spacer at all when I took it off

              There is a bolt in the end of the shaft. This is what you should use to put the cam back on. But when you are starting the cam on the bolt will be too short so use a longer all thread bolt to get it started. When you get the moving deck scissors cam on as far as you can with the bolt, start the rake lift cam on top of it and use it to push the mdsc on the rest of the way. At times the bolt may bottom out in the hole and you may have to use a shorter bolt.

                Use 5/8" all thread with a washer and a 5/8" nut, preferably a coupling style nut as it has more threads, use 90 weight oil on the threads. There is a spacer that goes first, 12-100185-004, pg,4 item #GB54

                  When putting on or taking of a split hub cam, I jam a large screwdriver into the split which will open it enough to pull on or of by hand.

                    You might not have noticed the spacer because it did not come off when you took the cam off. Look down behind the cam. The cam should not be all the way up against the bearing. You can see the spacer down there. If it is missing you need to pull it off again and put a spacer in there.

                      Highball, is the cam too far on or has not yet reached it's destination yet? Just so we know

                        The spacer can not come off without removing the key.
