  • spring rod bushing hole

    just thought of a permanant fix if the hole for your lift rod spring rod hole ever becomes worn to the point that you can't properly center your lift rods. i did this to one of my machines and it worked like a charm. take an old ball wheel pulley and cut-off about 1/4" where the set screw is. then weld that peice to the area where the bushing hole is. weld it on the side of the support where the bushing and spring are on. this works well if you model "a" ball tracks, since we don't have the option of replacing the lift rod support. if i had a2's i would just replace the support. but i don't, so i didn't . if you have anyother ideas for this fix pass 'em along for eveyone.

    by the way if you're wondering, the reason we have old b/w pulleys lying around is because we are slowing our b/w's down with smaller pulliesand it's helped get rid of a lot of ball calls. thanks for the tip peanut. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

    I have had the A2 Lift Supports wear as well and welded the spring seat to the support to reposition the spring rod assy.
