Hi all,

Machine has a shudder on stopping

Any ideas?

Cheers, John


Probably needs the clutch adjusting or the leather clutch pads replacing

Have a read through this page. If you have the manual read the related chapter.
If you haven't got the manual it is available in the Metal Type Library. Click on the link at the top of the site page.

Thanks to you both, certainly have the book, just need to read more.

Pity there is not a troubleshooting section, guess in the day all were properly trained mechanics.

Nothing worse than an operator being a wannabe mechanic.   :)

Cheers, John
