Bruce, sorry for the poor netiqutte, not saying the model, 8n, 1948. It looks like it has never been apart.
Back to the Main Control Spring Yoke, It would appear the place to put the heat is right on the (#41 FO146) Yoke. I have to look at the book (FO4) rather than trust what I see. I was thinking the sleeve that rides within the big coil spring was where the yoke threaded and woulda put the heat there. Thankful, didn't go down that long dead end.
This is fun stuff. Only a few ways that work.
So far, I found the gasket on top of the cylinder was blown. Also, the cam and pin for Position Ctrl are worn terribly.
The lift worked ok, despite the leak. I have a good idea where the adjustments are/were and may put it back the same and consider that issue more later.
I am about to cut some notches into the Lift Arms hoping a gear puller will do that task??
The Lift Arm bushings seem quite warn. I am not sure, maybe it was the 2n-9n had a one sided issue. Nothing mentioned in the book for 8n. All should be revealed in the fullness of time.
Thanks Bruce, for your kindness and patience. -russ
