St8 feed roller gap

Recommended Posts

Open the hood, remove the springs and open the rolers with the lift bar and wedge open with a suitable piece of timber, if you look at the back if the roller frame there is some groves that frequently get filled with crud and stop it closing fully, not always the easiest to clean out but will sort your problems.




When you left the top feed roll all the way up there is a threaded hole which one of the 2 bolts which hold down the flywheel top cover will screw in to and in sufficient will stop the feed roller from dropping back down
This is not only safer (no chance of a block slipping but it also leaves everything free to work on but the important bit is you screw the bolt in sufficiently if not all the way.
