Okay, so it's a rainy sunday in california and I'm (actually Jazz, I'm his wife and I think I got dissed by Samurai during a chat where I was pretending to be Jazz, just act like it's Jazz talking) having an affair with a job that has me stumped. I've changed out the bearings and the v-ring cassette. First time with an ASKO, and didn't love it. Anyway, the drum shaft did not have a spacer on it but one was sent with the v-ring cassette. The instructions that came with it said to not use the spacer "with long shaft housing and cylinder with aluminum carrier". Not knowing the difference from one machine of theirs to the next, I decided it probably shouldn't be used since it wasn't present when I took the thing apart. Bottom line, I put the whole lovely thing back together only to find that the shaft slides in about 1/16" when the drum spins causing the pulley to rub against the crossbar.

With my confessions having been made, HELP ME MR. WIZARD... I MEAN SAMURAI. I want my husband back!!!

This job is fraught with peril and there are any number of things that couldn't gone wrong. Which service manual was he using when he did this repair? Did he re-install the wavy washer?

He was using the w600 because the w6900 gave no details. The biggest question is was the rubber ring suppose to be on the shaft. Since it wasn't there when he started he was assuming not. Maybe even bigger is does it matter? The wavy ring was in place.

If it was a rubber ring, it may have been there originally but got worn off... which may have created, contributed, or resulted from the condition that required the repair he did (or is doing).

Must have been worn off or removed previously...we were called after others had been to the home. I guess he'll just have to take that thing back apart and slip on the rubber to see if that fixes the wench. Much Thnx

OK...itz REALLY me (Jazz) this time. (back from band rehearsal), and... Thanx to my lovely wife (and "wanna be me")...I read all your notes and suggestionz-iz...I took it apart (again...), tried using the O ring and now I got 'less' space at the rear then before. no room at all for the thrower ring. It appears that the real problem is at the V Ring Cassette (I think). It seems that the v ring cassette does not seat deep enough in its enclosure and because it's not flush against the drum, the shaft doesn't stick far enough outside the rear bearing, for the thrower ring to stay on. then the pulley sinks in rubbing against the crossbars. My question, then, is the v ring cassette supposed to be flush with the wall of the outer drum, becauser right now it sticks out about 1/4 inch or a little more......

That's MY theory...Now...What the REAL story is, i'm anxious to know.
Obee Juan..You're my only hope... :teehee:
