I'm just in the process of putting the head together and have come across a small problem...

The M3 x 14mm Cap Screw that holds the lower mixing arm onto the washout base is to long. With it as tight as I can get it I still have 2 - 2.5mm area that the lower mixing arm can move back and forth on.

Now I can grind the screw down to 11mm but has anyone else had the same issue or is my washout base faulty???

Have you verified they were in fact 3x14 and not a 3x16 included in error?

Also that bolt should be a 3x14 button head bolt not a cap

All sorted, the hole wasn't threaded far enough so the screw bottomed out...

Apparently this has been heard of, just tapping the thread a little further sorts the problem.

That was a typo on the cap head I knew it should have been a button head ;o)

I also had to do the same thing with the top and bottom main shaft bearing blocks... The thread was short and only accepted a 6mm screw out the box, tapped all holes now as stated in the manual I can fit the 8mm screws!
