Quick question about my Vbox

    Hey guys I was wondering if one of you had an answer to a quick question, I am pretty sure I know the answer but... Okay The picture below is what I found when I took the motor plate of my vbox, where the drag chain comes through it's bent up wards. The entire track area should be flat and level right? Or is this some kind of insider trick to keep the drag chain from getting bound up? I think the guy before me bent the sh*t out of it and I should heat and bend it back to level. Thanks in advance for any help, yes this is my first salter.

    Something was hung up in there, no reason to do that on purpose at least that I'm aware of.
     
  3. That is down like that from the factory. Do not make it level. You will get Hung up with the drag chain. Mine are all like that.

    I believe he is referring to the sides of the track were the pintle chain actually travels.

    I am talking about where the drag chain travels out of the chute, it's bent up and I don't think it will roll properly. The front tab turndown is not the issue.

    Thanks Basher I thought the same thing.
     
  6. Now I see it. Fix that soon. Bend it down a bit
