Delta 17" DP - Head raising worm gear shaft

Postby Wheels » Tue May 22, 2012 10:37 am

The shaft in the pic below did not come with my DP. I picked it up somewhere along the way. When I insert it into the head casting the end extends out the other side by about 3/4" so it makes me think I have the wrong part. It extends far enough to be able to put cranks on both sides. I've also ordered the spannnut it for the other side of the casting from mikestools but don't know if that will ever show up....I assume I'll need that........?

It might be helpful if someone could post a pic of theirs with the spanner nut installed so I can see how far in this shaft sits.


I'm in it for the parking...
