More LR3 questions

Hi,
So I’m looking at the tensioners and trying to figure out which goes where.
A better naming convention would help as I didn’t realise there were front and rear tensioners, since the front ones are called"Front Y…" and the rear ones are “Y tension…”.
Maybe something like “Y Tension Front Left Base” or “Y Tension Rear Right Block” would work better.
Anyway, I finally got it figured and just want to check that this is correct ?

The documentation also needs some tweaks, the front right block and base are in the y rails section but the last photo shows the left rear block and base.

Then there’s a section on the wiring and then the Y belt section finishes off the belts and tensioners, which seems to be in the wrong order to me. I assume that I go through Github if I want to update the docs ?

Thanks.

The second picture you show looks correct to me. I am trying to convey they are along the same line as the front blocks, not saying they are front blocks. Any way you can suggest to say that better?

It is easier to run all the wires before you string up the Y belts, in my opinion. I wrote them as I was building that one just to be certain things were in the order I actually built it. In what way would you suggest?

Yes.

My answers are reading really snarky to me but I promise they are not meant that way. I am genuinely looking for suggestions. I wrote them so just saying they are wrong is tough for me without suggestions on the way they read to you…and I am horrible at this stuff.

Heh, I was worried that I was coming across wrong by offering suggestions … :laughing:

I’ll have a play with the docs and see what you think.

I’ve forked the docs in GitHub but the words for that section aren’t there.

Am I missing a setting ?

Thanks

It is pretty far down the page. Line 678

Weird. Mine finishes at 674 ?!? :thinking:

It’s like the text has been stripped out.

Have you forked it before? Is that an older version?

I can’t find an actual post right now where Ryan said that, but I know that he’s posted it several times. :rofl:
