The more I've cleaned the outer part of this machine, I've decided to I need to jump right in and take the whole thing apart and give it a thorough cleaning.  Everything's CUC (completely under control).

As you can see by the pictures, every inch of it needs to be cleaned.  

I took the thumb screw out of the shuttle race back spring and pulled the shuttle race back off (I think those are the right terms going by the fuzzy pictures in the adjuster's manual)  and discovered a crack. If these aren't the right terms please correct me.  Hasn't cracked all the way through, but close enough that I should replace it.

Does anyone have an extra one that they'd be willing to sell?  I did find them online, but I thought I'd start here first to help fund someone's SMAD  [biggrin]

Thank you! Bags

I might have one, on a 1906 15-30 head that's out in the garage waiting for me to take it to the scrap metal collection that's held in town once a month, unless we're in the middle of the end of civilization as we know it, in which case it might be delayed.

I'll check tomorrow.

I salvaged a 15-91, and should have one. It will take a few days to get there to check.

Thank you Paul and Dave!  I'm in no hurry.  As I've been taking this apart, some of the parts are stuck, won't budge.  So a waiting game has commenced.  Oil, sitting in a sunny window, (except we got 6+ inches of snow overnight and not sure if the sun is coming out today), try moving it, etc., repeat.  So it's not in a big hurry either.  lol.

I also discovered some screws don't want to budge either (waiting for a replacement bit from Chapman's [frown]  ).  I learned my lesson on that one.

The other thing I noticed while trying to find the correct way to take this apart, is some of the part #'s aren't the same #'s in the parts list for the 15-91, but I finally found them listed on the parts list for the 15-88.  What a great learning experience this is.  Yes, I mean that sincerely!

Thanks again,
Carol

I took a look.  Mine's a bit different than the one you want to replace, and has no Simanco number.   Dave's is the better bet.
