Reattach Bottom Roller Assembly to Lift Arm on No. 3

Hello all, here’s another question for a No. 3. I got brand new rollers and have secured them into the bottom roller assembly, but now I need to put the assembly back onto the lift arm bracket and want to make sure I’m doing it correctly. Any tips on how this should go? I have the assembly propped up on a box now so I can screw them back in, but I noted that my rollers may prevent me from putting the nut on the end of the screw that attaches to the bracket. So is there a way to put the assembly on without the rollers, and then put them on afterward so I can get that nut on?

Thanks in advance for the help.

    Paul, so we figured out another way to reattach the form roller assembly by actually unscrewing the bolt on the lift lever screw (BS-151) which allowed the entire arm to come off and enabled free access to attach the bracket back onto the roller frame. No dealing with the cotter and clevis pins. Just as a note for anyone who needs to reattach their form rollers, or others who may want to have better access to the friction spring assembly/friction fingers (for cleaning or adjustment).

    Sheet 99 of the manual shows that MR-44 Lift pin connects the lift arm with the bracket on the bottom frame of the form rollers. Remove the pin, fasten the bracket to the roller frame, then attach bracket and lift arm with the lift pin. The pins are common 3/8 x 7/8″ clevis pins and if missing are available at hardware stores. Clevis pins are held in place with(as noted) 1/8 x 3/4″ cotter pins, also a hardware store item.
