    Default Setting Up Forward/Reverse Nozzle Cable

    Can someone tell me the proper way to set-up the handle travel in relationship to nozzle movement? I am going to have to buy a new clevis (at the nozzle end of the cable) because the flapper isnt traveling all of the way up out of the nozzle opening (I would say about 3/8th" into the opening). Do I just need to clear the opening or is there a set spec that I should be above it? I probably need a clevis end that is about 3/4" to 1" longer then I have now.

    Joe

    Here is a photo as it is. The cable threads only engage the clevis end by about 3/8" and as it came from Commander.



    This is as the it would be if the clevise was about 1/8" from getting the threads to engage the clevis.



    This is the flapper as high as it can go before contacting the Bowl.



    Is the 2nd photo high enough or should I aim for in between photos 2 and 3?

    Joe the reverse bucket should completely clear the entire opening of the nozzle in full fwd or "wot" position and completely close and cover the nozzle in the reverse position. The travel in the shifter ,along with the adjustments at both ends should provide for this , call me if you have questions i'll pm my cell , I'll be around all weekend Tom

    Check the backside of the shifter handle too. If that little tang gets bent out, it will drastically reduce your bucket travel.

    DUDE there are rocks in your bowl

    thats not good. Impeller is damaged and bowl veins are probably hurt. That bucket is the least of your problems.

    Thats what keeps happening to Me. The cable "rod" at the shifter gets "kinked" and it won't travel back to full forward. It could be due to my "panic" reverse pulls in the Sac. River in Redding. It's pretty swift up there!

    I havent had to chance to see what is inside the bowl but I figured out what the problem was. Someone along the way must have slammed the lever into reverse very hard and bent the cable rod up at the control lever. I got it straightened out now its good to go.

    Cool , Now get some kid to stick his hand in the end and work the rock out of the end of your bowl for now .
    Chris is definatly right about alot of shit being wrencked in there from that rock going through . Probably not the first rock to go through there either.

    I finally got in there and discovered that indeed Mighty Mouse had built a nest in my pump! How do I know it was Mighty Mouse you ask? Because the nest was built with rocks! I figured I would show you what I found once I took the bowl off and removed the impeller. The impeller puller was something I used a Presidential Solution to make with junk I had laying around the garage and wasnt made to look pretty but it worked perfectly. I think I am going to change a few things to make it look better and actually take my time making the next one. The impeller was junk so I figured if it didnt work I couldnt ruin the already ruined impeller anymore.

    The wear ring shows absolutely no wear whatsoever so it was just the impeller that is no good. Everything else looks as good as new as far as I can tell.







    Thanks,
