Out of curiosity can the bands be sprayed with a rubber protectant to try and help life. They are only stretching because of age and cracking. Has this ever been tried?
All new brushes. That was too easy. Lube jobs done. Rubber is good on all through arms. Made sure sure all targets were landing in the correct zone. Lot of other stuff with my air compressor wand and shop vac.Don't forget the brushes. Excessive wear makes 'em throw wonky targets.
Did all that .Did you change the "O " rings on the rollers and check the rollers themselves.The old style were bronze bushings and the new ones are roller bearings.The roller bearings freeze up with the target dust and then you get flat spots on the roller "O"
When you replace the rubber band did you notice one arm faces up and the other one is down.Did you loosen the one way clutch to keep everything in line.
I hope you have some one helping you.Two people make the job easier.
You can't go wrong following the manual. If you get in a jam you can call Pat Trap, they will help you in any way they can.Steve, your first post said changing the bands was pretty simple. Did you follow the directions in the PAT trap manual or just wing it? Asking because I have to get this done this year too.
