richmond powertrax

I recently got a richmond powertrax for my d30, used, very little. The pins that hold the center pieces together are tight, I would think the pins should be loose allowing the center parts to move freely. Anyone with any experience with the powertrax locker, please help, I'm at a loss. I think the persons that installed the unit used the wrong pins.

Re: richmond powertrax

pictures would really help here.

Have you done a search on GOOGLE or You-Tube for install instructions? I have seen an install video that was posted there. You can download instructions from the PowerTrax website - http://www.powertrax.com/installmanuals.html .

Read this - http://www.rockcrawler.com/techrepor...ront/page2.asp

Re: richmond powertrax

First of all, there are two Powertrax lockers - the Lock Right and the No-Slip. Which do you have?

I installed my own two No-Slips and helped with a friend's. And I don't know what pins you're referring to.

I cant imagine them being too tight,that should be a good thing.A worn locker has the holes starting to elongate!

Re: richmond powertrax

It should be tight, I had to use some persuasion to get it in. I'm assuming you're refering to the cross pin.

Re: richmond powertrax

not the cross pin. It's the two small pins that hold the piece together surrounding the pinion shaft. I'll post pics sometime within the next few days. It's a no slip

Re: richmond powertrax

Here is my D30 PowerTrax No-Slip. These pins ? They appear to be pressed in. Lockers are magic, just like computers. They have stuff that looks weird and I don't understand what it does.
