  • Deck Rebuild

    Have a question about the deck spring. I am rebuilding a deck and was wondering how many turns to put on the deck spring. When I took it apart it turned one full turn. Is that enough or should it have more? Thanks for any help.

    Yes, one full turn clockwise is all you need.

      If you put more turns than will cause undo stress to be applied to the moving deck/scissor cam. This in turn can cause you to loose the key/keyway on the 1:1. I have worked on a few machines that have lost the 1:1 and found the deck too tight from 2 turns on the shaft. I guess some mechanic somewhere sometime thought more was better...not always...

        Thanks for the help, just wanted make sure. Other than screwing up the 1:1, could that also be a cause for a cracked main deck?
