Atlas Wind Cup Replacment
« on: December 26, 2021, 10:42:39 AM »
I'm trying to replace the wind cups On my Atlas since the wind direction isn't working. I placed the cups on the shaft 3 times but apparently not correctly. As you can see by the attached documentation under #3 it is very unclear when it says align THEM, what is it referring to? Has anyone done this & can they make it clearer. It's very difficult to remove them each time.

Don't see any attached pictures/document.

Added Edit:
The wind cups just sit on the wind vane shaft and should spin freely.

The underside of the wind vane itself has a flat section that should match the flat section on the vane shaft. Match flat sections and press into place and it should snap into place and spin freely.

I think part 2 and 3 refers to wind cups disassemble and assemble.
There is a flat part to be aligned, then press the wind cups
