We are looking all around, have'nt found anything yet. This place is the kingdom of Burbs & pick ups so something will turn up. Will take delivery next week but then I have eye surgery the week after so the earliest we could travel will be mid August at best. So thats a nice window. Did you see my comment about the toggle next to the lift motor. I thought it was a good idea.

Actually I MEANT to mention that- that is a good idea- I'm surprised Howie hasn't already done it! I now I will! I still need to figure out why the gear smoked itself....and after that I'll get that little tidbit done!

is fine

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by 56Nomad:

I just did mine and the resistance to move the
front upward is greater than cranking it downward. It still is a pain in the butt.

As soon as I get some time, I'm still going to
try using my 18V drill in low gear to operate the manual crank. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I fabricated a connection end exactly like the
one on the hand crank, although I attached it to a straight 1/2" steel rod

I first tried my 18Volt 1/2" drive power drill..... not enough torque.

Then I tried my heavy duty Bosch drill.... still
not enough torque

Lesson learned: Don't lose your hand crank

good job '56 with finding the fuse,
Sean, did you check that fuse??? is your motor running?
but still, the question would remain ... why did either of those two smoke, whether it is the fuse or the motor itself...


and '56, that was a great experiment trying a couple different robust drills with "RV Crank Gear attatchments" on the business end,...
..but i still remember that day we had to 'manual' the gears on Sean's rig. One man could have done it, hey... you do what you have to do,..... but we ran a three man rotation and it pooped all of us out. I could see Bosch drill might have a dickens of a time.

Sean, ... any news???

(actually on edit: it was a 3 man - and one boy getting that rig cranked up. I still feel a little guilty to this day watching 13 year old Bri working that mechanism all by himself right off the bat, while the rest of us stood around and watched!! Hey, Sean, let him have his drivers license a year early because he showed heart there, ehhh? )

Howie & Mike:

I checked ALL three in-line fuses off the battery- not one was fried...I hope they don't try to tell me it's my 6v battery install that did it!

We'll see!!

Sean,

Instead of taking your rig to Perris, why
not just remove the 4 bolts and remove the motor
and pick a new one up. It sure looks like an
easy install with plenty of access room.

I would try a 1/2 industural drill. If it works you could power it off the gen in a pinch and save I lot of hand cranking. Personally now that I have mine that motor looks a little under powered to me and they have quite the gear ratio because of it. I don't remember hand cranking being that big of deal long ago. Sure is sloooooow now.

Since we all air down our tires when we go to the dunes, and need a compressor to air back up, how about a 1/2" drive air impact wrench for these emergencies.
