  • Interlock probe

    I had a problem with the 5 pin dropping thru the chute about 3 times a day. I found that the probe was too far back causing too much clearance between the probe & the blocking fingers. By comparing with other machines I found that the collar with the oilite at the bottom of the radius bend was welded too far forward so I cut it off just in front of the radius & welded 3/16 piece of flat stock to move the hardened end closer to the fingers. Maybe the part was made on monday or friday. Sounds hokey I know but no more problems. Anyone else found sub-standard parts?
    Yeah but, We've always done it that way.

    Funny you are having this problem now because I am also, but I know what my problem is. The 5 pin release lever commomly called the tongue is bent down too far allowing the 5 pin to slip through on occassion. The fix is to run the deck down and put an adjustable wrench with a pipe over the handle for leverage on the tongue and bend it back up. This will allow the pin to stay in the chute at the proper position and line up with the blocking fingers better.

      Ive had problems like that before and the one solution was bending the probe back up inside the chute [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img] however, on one occasition it broke off [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img] Later discovering a crack underneath when I replaced it.

        The pin release lever should have a 5 1/8" measurement from the end of the lever to the front face.(when measured across with a caliper.

        I always go thur a house take off the release levers and make sure these are on the money.

        Also when the spider is unlocked and the probe is under finger_the end (lenghth) of probe should be under the Full deck blocking finger.If it is short you will need to make longer probe links to extend probe. I had somone make me some up years ago that are 1/16, and 1/8" longer and plated to prevent wear.

        Just some Info,
