Had a fellow call me tonight to ask some pressure plate questions. He had replaced the Auburn unit with a Rockford unit a bit over six months ago. After a short discussion, I asked if I could come and take some pics of the problem pressure plate and his remedy for the problem.
One of the adjusting nuts came off and this is how it turned out.
Pressure plate finger.
TOB - new ~ six months ago.
New pressure plate with safety wired nuts. Fingers adjusted to 1.25".
Closeup of custom built safety wired nut. Nuts had loctite applied as well.
Neither one of the fellows there, this evening, are members of this forum, however, there was a printed copy of this http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=6994
on the workbench. When asked about how they found it, the answer was "I just used a search engine."
As an aside, I got to bring these home.
Should make single handedly sliding the two halves of a Cub together much simpler. Much better than the ones I made by cutting the heads off a couple of bolts.
