Default Re: Speed King query

Gerard, I'm out of town right now and don't have access to a Speed King, but - in my experience - I only put a couple turns on those bottom screws. Maybe the springs in your's have "taken a short set" (not as flexible as they should be after years of being tightened down.)

Of course, the number of turns on the screws is dependent on how ""tight" you want the action to be (how much resistance you want from the pedal). The more you turn the screws, the more resistance the pedal gives you, but also the more the beater moves away from the head.

Sorry, this is all I can offer you. Hoping an expert chimes in. Regards, MB
