Setting the caster on an L29? was created by Joel
Hi, I measured the caster and found it to be way negative. So I loosened the lower spring clamps and turned the adjusters to move the lower springs forward. After moving the spring 3/8", I re-measured and there was no change in the caster, but I noticed that a substance that looks like oakum had come out of the pocket surrounding the front tip of the main leaf. What is that stuff, and what is going on? If anyone wants to phone me rather than type, my # is 612-221-oh-nine-one-oh

Thanks, Joel.

I talked to Ken Clark about this and got it figured out. There is a rubber bushing around the front of each spring. If that rubber is deteriorated, it will be impossible to set the caster. what I saw coming out of that spring pocket that looked like oakum, is actually deteriorated rubber. Steele rubber products makes replacement rubber bushings. So it looks like that is the route I will be going
