Detailed Ergopower rebuilding question(5 posts)

Detailed Ergopower rebuilding questionPINA
Oct 10, 2001 7:42 AM
This is my question (I first wanted to know if there were others who did it):
I have both the Campagnolo drawing of the Ergopower and the official Campa video with instructions, BUT...
the problem is that in the video, they show a small gold coloured ring that fits exactly in the cam's bottom part (EC-AT061 Record model), but in my Daytona Ergopower there is no gold coloured ring and of course I got the rings mixed up. I rebuilt the EP with a small ring in the cam. This one seems to be smaller then the one in the video, but there is no wider ring in my EP.

Did you experience the same thing? Do you remember if this part fit exactly into the cam?

Is there a way to tell which ring is which if you happen to mix them up? The drawings are not to scale and I can not tell from any drawing I know which is which.

Thanks in advance!

Hi PINA,
I have rebuilt, and replaced some parts within my ergopowers, and the gold ring"washer" you mention is in front of the cam(how did you get the rings mixed-up?). The Campy video that you have, what year was it made, and are the ergopowers shown in the video a current, or past model? Also Daytona ergopowers rely on bushings, not bearings for the shifting action, so there probably would be no need for such a part in Daytonas(I might be wrong though, check the Daytona specs on the campy website!)

If you look at it from the handles it is :-)

>(how did you get the rings mixed-up?)
I dropped the whole tray with components....

2000

Record model 2000

I checked and you are right!

Do you know how you can tell one ring from another? (there are 4 if I remember well)

Thanks!

I don't know how to tell one from the other, for when I rebuilt my ergopowers, I didn't go as far as removing the washers. If you have 4 washers/rings, according to a printout of a EP schematic, there are 3 thin: EC-RE008,EC-AT061,EC-RE065 & 1 thicker ring/washerEC-RE127. GOTO the Campy website and call up an ergopower schematic and it will show where each of the 4 washers belong, during reassembly!

I plan to have to rebuild my Daytona Ergos someday, so went to the schematics, and think I can easily make a bearing version out of the bushed version.

1. Replace the "axle" EC-VL036 with an EC-RE435.

2. Replace the unnumbered bushing with two EC-RE026s.

3. If the unnumbered shim on the Daytona is not an EC-AT061, replace that too.

Did I miss something?

Cheers...Gary
