I have a 325, serial #6086, and I’m having trouble with the trip mechanism. The pedal is completely unresponsive. It would seem that there was a problem with a spring or the spring link, but it seems to be at least connected fine. It’s not “snapping back” to create the tension one needs to raise the grippers, but according to the diagram, all the connections are correct. . . . When i push the gripper trip lever from the other side, they go up just fine. I’m not sure how to access the push rod to see if the problems is there. I’m also thinking that maybe the spring has lost it’s tension?
Any help would be most appreciated.
