I recently had a bad problem with my planer where the out-feed roller froze. The bushings basically melted to the shaft and so I had to order new ones in order to replace them. It took about 10 days for the parts to finally get here and today I am trying to put it all back together.
Where I am having the problem is, the gear and chain that connects to the drive motor and the out-feed roller. I can’t get the snap rings to clip into the groove once you place the gears on the shaft for both, the drive shaft as well as the out-feed roller shaft. I am really puzzled by this and wonder if anyone knows where there might be a photo of how to configure the gears onto these shafts so as to allow the snap rings to properly snap into the grooves where they belong. 3 of the gears are the same and there is one smaller gear that should go onto the out-feed roller shaft. I don’t see anywhere enough detail in the mfg parts layouts that gives the orientation of these gears to help.
Please, has anyone ever ran into and solved this problem before?
Thank you in advance for your assistance!!
