Elevator chain requires adjustment when distance between bottom of elevator frame and eleva-
tor chain is greater than 9 in. (229 mm). Distance between bottom of elevator frame and eleva-
tor chain should be 5-9 in. (127-229 mm).
When an adjustment is made to one elevator chain, the same adjustment must be made to sec-
ond elevator chain.
Measure elevator chain slack. Take measurement approximately half way between upper sprocket and lower idler, at
widest space between edge of elevator frame and upper side of chain. Chain slack must be 5-9 in. (127-229 mm).
Arm can be moved to another position to tighten elevator chain.
One link changes the length of the chain approximately 4 in. (100 mm).
