Classic Lodestar Large Frame - Limit Switch

Extended Limit Switch Parts

The parts listed above are for a standard 44 thread per inch limit switch shaft. The limit switch assembly can be modified with a 56 thread per inch shaft or a 64 thread per inch shaft to increase the maximum lift. The chart below shows the maximum lift of different models with each type of limit switch shaft assembly:

 MODEL 44 TPI SHAFT MAX LIFT 56 TPI SHAFT MAX LIFT 64 TPI SHAFT MAX LIFT
L & J 127' 162' 185'
LL 250' 318' 363'
R 64' 81' 93'
RR 124' 158' 181'

 

To replace the stock limit switch shaft with a 56 TPI shaft, you will need a 56 TPI Limit Switch Shaft, a Limit Switch Shaft Gear and a 56 TPI Limit Switch Nut.  A 64 TPI Limit Switch Shaft is also available and requires a Gear and 64 TPI Nut to complete the assembly.
