Title: Corliss valve trip cams
Post by: Les#053 on December 20, 2015, 03:27:07 PM
Hi,

 :headscratch: Does anyone know how the trip cams are fixed to the sleeves (is this another Loctite job) if so how are they set in relation to the cam lever?

There seems to be very little room for error as there is very little travel on the governor linkage and not much adjustment on the lifting links.

This is for the Arnold Throp/Southworth engine... part 345 the trip cam. I'd loctite it.

For the angle I would assemble it on the job with the arms in the right sort of position then adjust on the two links that go up to the governor

My drawings have a note under the trip blade "Assemble parts 343,344 & 345 using Loctite in positions shown on sheet 181M"

Thanks Jo and Jason,

Great help from you both, again!

Your drawings seem to be much more detailed than mine Jason, but then mine are quite old.
