Got mine in today from RPP with the exact same problem but also the dig case does not fit up to trans near the top where the notch is on the dig side. I am glad to see I am not the only person with this problem but I am needing this fixed ASAP as I was going to run it at Nationals this coming weekend in Moab. I did send an email to Don about this issue. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Ryan

Assembling the dig, and I can't thread the rod into the fork at the correct side. It threads in ok at the wrong side. It really does not make sense as it should be able to thread both sides. Need help here. Thanks.

siggy, youll need a 6-32 tap($5) to thread it the rest of the way..... I read about this in another thread+mine came in yesterday(and yes I did tap it all the way thru with the 6-32 tap)..............but my dig unit isnt working like I think I should. Burned up a servo already, so, not sure what to do now.

even trying to shift by hand is kinda hard(probably binding), took it apart like 3 time now to check installation. The brass pin on the "cog" is true(to the eye), everything seems smooth till I put the cases together(dig case and tranny)+(tried tightening and keeping the screws(tranny to motor plate) loose)...........

also, having a hard time with the linkage.

Has anybody got this new batch to work perfectly?

its my first dig, so, maybe I just need to figure it out....

Even if it looks true to the eye, I'd go ahead and pull it apart and polish your brass pin all the way around and slightly round the end (so it will slide even if it's on an angle vs. cutting into the cogs).

Make sure there is NO grease on the nylon bushings either.

Once you can get it to slide easily by hand, put in the servo. Once you are there I suggest mounting the linkage to the back side of the servo horn so the link is parallel with the drivetrain.

Hopefully that all makes sense.

Yes. I followed the online manual and had it done and working flawless within 20 mins.. I have not had a single issue yet from it.

Although, I do not run a smaller servo.. I made a new mount and run a 645 on mine.

As far as grease on the nylon bushing, everything in mine is coated with a silicone grease.

I apologize, it is completely my fault. I spent the last week and a half with family as my 33 year old sister has been in poor health and passed away early yesterday morning. It's going to be a few more days until I can give the attention needed to take care of some things. If possible, Solomon will do his best to take care of those of you who can't wait.

Don

Oh sorry to hear that Don. I am not in any rush but I just am rebuilding my rig and wanted to get it all done during the rebuild.

Thanks
