    Are all moving deck-sissor cans interchangable

  • #2

    no they are not interchangable. one style is for the scotch yoke style and the other is for the lowering link style 2 to 1's. i don't know what will happen if you put the wrong one on a scotch yoke but if you put the wrong one on a lowering link, not only will you get a LOT of pins sticking in the bucket....getting the pins to set without wobbling is next to impossible. either a lot of wobble on first ball, a lot of wobble on second ball, or a little on both(which isn't noticable from 60 feet away). hope this is what you were looking for.

      Re: DECK CAMS

      i ask same question a while back.They are not interchangable. If you go back about 4to 6 months ago and look for a topic on 2 to 1's, there was a few responses to this.

        Re: DECK CAMS

        The cams are designed for one of two types of deck lowering systems, links, or scotch yokes. I kind of marveled at the appearance of the scotch yokes, but love the simplicity of the lowering links.

        The newer cams both now have a split hub, to ease the installation. I dont think its as strong as the original, but I can use a much smaller sledge hammer now

        The newer cams (compared to the orginals on the A's) have a slightly different curvature to them. The timing is the same, but the moving deck shifts MUCH more smoothly with the newer cams. I have been changing them out as time permits, maybe 1-2 per month. The roughness I was seeing was at the 2 major shifts of the deck. The initial rearward shift, when leaving 180 degrees, and the final forward shift around 0/360 degrees.

        Anyhow, thats my 1 1/2 cents worth (inflation)

          I'm sure the sledge hammer comment was in jest, however on the off hand chance it wasn't, give some thought to the fact that only two quarter inch grade two cap screws are resisting that applied force.
          Much better to use 5/8 all thread with a nut and washer to pull cam and hub on shaft.

            Why not a press to install the cam?

            unless you're speaking of installing it while the 1:1 is on the machine. Is that what you meant?
