shellacrx: @MrReadandlearn Thanks. Follow the link to MyTractorForum that I added to
the video description. It will provide all the details on the parts and how
I built it. I'm also looking to build a power lift system as well.
Qwhyitone: What motors did you use?
shellacrx: @Qwhyitone All the details can be found in the MyTractorForum link in the
description. Just click on it and read the forum thread.
shellacrx: @dhanscel249250 Sorry to confuse you. But you're correct, the actuator will
be in the DOWN position when the chute is all the way up. I wrote it up
wrong. However, my original point is still valid - meaning, when the chute
is UP (with the actuator in the retracted position) it will line up with a
single point on the bottom of the chute when the chute is also DOWN (with
the actuator in the extended position.) If you do it right, the up and down
movement of the actuator will provide full movement.
shellacrx: @1picklecox I did not change the plastic teeth on the chute. I have heard of
your particular problem though, but all the setups I've seen with this
issue generally have a poor contact angle between the chute and the spiral
gear (either too far away or too high of an angle.) This can typically be
adjust or the angle needs to be changed (lowered) for better meshing. All I
did was adjust the spiral gear to be as close as possible to the teeth -
just shy of hitting and it doesn't pop out.
shellacrx: @dhanscel249250 You just pick an approximate reference point on the top
chute assembly for the hole, and then extend the actuator AND chute up –
make a reference line (arc) where the bottom hole lines up on the bottom of
the chute (with the actuator mounted in the top hole); then move the
actuator AND chute down to find out where the intersection point is to the
reference line for the lower mount. There’s only one point where they both
meet – that’s where you drill the hole.
shellacrx: @1picklecox Also, check the MTF forum thread link in the description. There's
another guy with the same issue as you. He ended up buying the parts for
the chute rotation from the 341 snow blower (they fit for his blower even
though it was a different model.) You could probably do something similar
to fix the angle when connecting up a power window motor. Just an idea.
Good luck with it!
MrReadandlearn: Thats the ticket. I have a sims cab and it makes using the manual crank a
pain. How do you build one?
