    Default South Bend Shaper

    I just picked up SB shaper and i'm taking it apart for clean, inspect, and paint. I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to get at the set screw at the bottom of the rocker arm? I'll have more questions as I go along. Pictures a little later.
    Thanks

    I've seen a few that had a square head set screw on the very bottom. You have to be a bit of a contortionist but you can get at it with a small ignition wrench after moving the ram all the way forward. If it is a socket head set screw you can grind down the short leg of an allen wrench to allow adequate clearance between the screw and the bottom of the sump. Patience is definitely required.

    Thanks for replying. Turned out there wasn't one there. That's why I was confused.
