  • up stop for excalibur ex19

    I just finished replacing all the bearings in my Excalibur EX19VS and it runs smooth as glass,,, but,,,the upper arm will not stay up like it did before. I suspect something in the (rear) tension rod is not correct. My owners manual shows a coil spring below the Cross Trunnion, but my machine did not have one. any advice would be appreciated ~~~ i'm really stuck.

    I suspect it may have popped off while you werent looking. Have you scoured the floor for spare parts?

      I would call Seyco and talk to Ray. He knows the EX inside and out.

        Makes me happy just to hear of these old saws still in use. Parts are no longer available so there is not very many still running.

          Solution:
          The trunion (inside the back end of the upper arm) is not intended to rotate. it binds the adjuster t-bolt to hold the upper arm in a raised position. The trunion must be fixed to the upper arm.

          Fix:
          I drilled into the joint between end of trunion and side of upper arm and fashioned a piece of coat hanger wire to eliminate relative rotation. I was going to weld the joint, but that is not reversible, and I was not positive this was the fix.

          Works great.
