Coach Step problems after new shoulder bolt
The shoulder bolt broke on my triple Coach Steps. I removed the steps and the broken bolt and replaced the shoulder bolt
with a new one. Did not know how to index the fan gear to the motor teeth, so
I extended the steps and put the gear near the end of the gear travel. Installed the steps and opened the door, the steps went out and inch or so, and locked up.
I removed the gear and moved it 5 or 6
teeth and then it went in and out fully, but was noisy. I noticed the heim jointed ends were both very loose, so I tightened them. When the steps are closed they seem to be bound up and under a lot of pressure, so i loosed the fan gear again and it seemed to want to rotate the fan gear another 5 or 6 teeth. Sorry for the long story.
Here are my questions.
1) How do you adjust linkage? I think it is too long. I found lots of info on the Kwikee, but nothing with fan gear and linkage.
2) Do I disconnect the Heim joint at the steps, extend the steps all the way out, Then adjust the link length until it fits in the mounting hole again?
