Install color press attachment as follows:
Adjust setscrews (4, fig. 5-4) so as to clear the opening in the top portion of each mounting bracket
Position mounting brackets on duplicating machine and install attaching screws (3).
Tighten setscrews (5) to provide for a snug fit against duplicating machine frame.
Tighten setscrew (4) on each mounting bracket.
Remove the ink and water oscillators and the number 2 form from the color press assembly in
accordance with commercial manual instructions.
Loosen the three main tie rod (16, fig. 5-4) attaching and adjusting nuts (6).
Position the color press assembly on the mounting brackets with the bolts on holddown bar (7)
protruding through the rear holes of the mounting brackets (13).
Position yoke shaft (8) through slotted holes in mounting brackets and insert screw (2).
Install holddown bar attachment nuts (1) and secure main tie rod attaching and adjusting nuts (6).
Place a level on the duplicator blanket cylinder and then on the color press plate cylinder. The level
indications should be identical. If they are not, adjust color press plate cylinder as follows:
Loosen holddown bar attachment nuts(1).
Adjust leveling screws (9) until level indications of duplicator blanket cylinder and color press
plate cylinder are identical.
Tighten holddown bar attachment nuts (1).
Loosen the main tie rod attaching and adjusting nuts (6). The center bolt acts as a pivot point in
relation to the turnbuckles (11). The two outside bolts pass through elongated holes in the holddown bar (7), to permit
movement around the pivot point, when adjusting the turnbuckles (11).
Position yoke shaft bushings (10) into mounting brackets, ensuring that slot in bushings is uppermost
and is visible in the bracket openings.
Secure screws (2) in mounting brackets at the same time moving the yoke shaft pressure handle (15)
backwards and forwards until a tightening in the handle is felt.
With pressure applied to the pressure
handle, adjust turnbuckles (11) until the color press plate and duplicator blanket cylinders are approximately parallel.
This is achieved by sighting between the two cylinders and adjusting each until any light visible between the two can no
longer be seen.
Check that slots in yoke shaft bushings are still uppermost and that slight pressure can still be felt in
the yoke shaft pressure handle (15).
Install the ink and water oscillators and the number 2 form in accordance with commercial manual
Fill the ink fountain of the color press and adjust flow. Overall flow is regulated with the ratchet
control on the upper right-hand side of the machine. Sectional flow is controlled with the individual fountain keys.
Start and operate the duplicating machine in accordance with commercial manual instructions in
order to run down the ink. Move ink forms down so as to apply ink to the cylinder. Stop the duplicating machine.
Move the yoke shaft pressure handle (15) forward to lay a stripe on the blanket cylinder.
If necessary, adjust turnbuckles (11) until an even stripe of between 0.125 inches (3.2 mm) and
0.188 inches (4.75 mm) is achieved.
Secure turnbuckle locknuts and recheck the stripe.
With the yoke shaft pressure handle for- ward, secure the main tie rod attaching and adjusting nuts
(6), tightening the center nut first.
Turnbuckles (11) should never be adjusted without first loosening main tie rod nuts (6).
If necessary, adjust plate to blanket cylinders pressure by loosening setscrew (14) in calibrated collar
and then moving the yoke shaft pressure handle forward or back to increase or decrease pressure. Note graduations in
calibrated collar. Secure setscrew.
Position the left and right guards and install attaching screws. (See fig. 5-2.)
Install knobs on ink and water feed control shafts.
Install the ink and water fountain control knobs.
