Rider roller frame

Hello guys —Happy holidays!

I installed a long lost taper pin for the rider rollers shaft on my no.4 and realized that the MR-113 Tie Rods where the M-123 Rider Rollers go, are definitely twisted or bent so they make the installation of the pin a very tight fit and makes the frame sit twisted on over the rollers.

What’s the recommendation here? Make new rods or straighten them?

Thank a lot!

    That makes sense, and this might actually be the culprit of the Ink Drum not getting contact on the Non-Operator Side.
    I’ll take the frames to him and we’ll take a good look, they are simple rods, which I can probably have made inexpensively.
    Thanks a lot, Paul :)

    Your machinist should be able to tell you the best solution. You might have other tie rods that are also slightly bent or twisted.
