So I immediately went to the garage and slap the rest of it together. Then I did a high speed adjustment and re-adjusted the Gilmer belt as it was too tight and the motor dodn't want to turn very fast..... After re-tensioning the Gilmer belt she ran like a raped ape....... This thing seems to be even faster then my Mark VII but I have never done a speed adjustment on the Mark VII so she may be hamstrung a little bit. My Greenie came out awesome as far as I am concerned. There were some minor issues with the paint that disappointed me but I learned from that and won't have those problems again. I am really pleased with the way it all came out and now I am wondering if I should keep it or sell it????? Also this machine came with a sanding disc that measures 12" in diameter but I had another one from my Mark VII that was smaller which measured 10" in diameter. Did SS provide both 12" and 10" sanding discs???
The 10e/r had both 9" and 12" aluminum sanding disks. The greenie and goldies and gray magna-american had 12" alumiunum disks. The Mark VII had a 10" aluminum disk which is flat on one side, and slightly conical on the back side. All ss mark V have steel 12" disks with varying hub length(500//505,510,520) and the 'conical' sanding disk(again with different hubs).
BTW She looks gorgeous!!!!
For the Broken Arrow Guy!:D
