I noticed this collar on the shaft for the blade height adjustment mechanism. It has two threaded holes for set screws.

The screws are missing and it’s just sitting there. What is it’s function? It seemed to be next to the pulley for the motor. Any ideas?

Its a Grizzly G1023 99’ model. I guess i should have grabbed a picture. I can see where the shaft is “clean” where it was, but it is touching the motor pulley so I’m not sure if thats the original spot or not.

Is the clean spot at the back end of the shaft right next to where it goes through the support casting? If so, put it back and secure it with the set screws. It keeps the shaft captive and without it, your elevation adjustment will be loose and subject to unintended movement.

No, actually. It was stationary next to (and rubbing on) the belt pulley off the motor. Glad I cought it.

I’ll have to figure out the size of the set screws and purchase more. They’re both missing. I feel it may have been like this long before I bought it. I never messed with it when I rebuilt it. Thanks for the image. I found the manual.

Have your say...
