Recommended Posts

roma3112
hi guys almost a lil embarassed to ask but, i recently rebuilt the 42' blower for my 3112 as part of that i had to remove the assembly that rotates the chute. Well I put back the cable and re-wrapped it as i thought it was but it is not correct. When i turn the adjuster it gets all bunched up depending on which way and how far you turn it. Is there a correct way to install the chute adjustment cable? any help would appreciated john

Yes, I have messed around with those cables a lot too. My suggestion is to take the rotator arm completely off the blower, with the chute facing forward, wrap one half of the cable(on the fat part, #13) above the bolt, #11 in the drawing, and the other half below the bolt. Then pull the arm tight and replace it in the socket on the blower. Once you get it set right it shouldn't give you much trouble. I would suggest that you use some white lithium grease or other lubricant on the base of the chute so it turns easily. I have tried PAM spray cooking oil and didnt think that much of it, altough some people swear by it.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
