Forst ST6 Feed Roller Problem

Recommended Posts

So after messing about testing as much of the electrics as I could, the problem still appeared to be in the hydraulic block/manifold. 

 

The coils were energising when switched so we pulled the actuators (is that what they’re called?) off to find the internal rod siezed and immovable. Tapped it with a hammer and small drift, carefully, and a tiny slither of wood came out with the oil>:( 

 

After reassemby, running perfectly. The top up on Thursday morning was from a brand new drum, so possibly the contamination came about by a less than clean funnel or inadequate cleaning around the filler cap. 

 

If nothing else, we’ve learnt a bit more to add to the fault-finding/trouble shooting book of knowledge.

Blimey, thats a new one on me. Lucky the contaminant did not get to the pump, that could have been another job entirely!
