Ok, gunna pull this one back out.
Eksinger, did you keep a parts list of all the items ?
My transmission (1-'91 VF-1) and tho still full of oil, it has rubber "cushions" surrounding the 6 mounting bolts which prevents me from tensioning the belt in the manner found in the '93 and newer manuals. Does ANYONE have info on these bushings, a part number (hahaha) maybe an actual service manual for the '89-92ish machines etc ? I measured my belt as the 800-8MGT-21 and replaced it with the 20mm GT3 version instead due to cost and availability of new old stock 21mm belts
diyengineer253, you mentioned having 3 extra transmissions. Do any have the rubber cushions ?
Mine is such a great machine, I want to keep it running as long as I can. I did a full teardown and repair/replace back in early 2020 and only have had a few "minor" issues since. Most all were plunger switch related and cheapish to resolve. The most recent, and the most frustrating is my spindle drive (Mitsubishi FR-Z220) is acting up and periodically turns off/on during a program. It's a physical issue as I've made it happen when gently tapping on the removable chips on the main PCB so I cleaned and reseated said Chips and fingers crossed. If that didn't cure it, time for a new VFD.
