I'm new to the CNCzone forums but have lurked around in the past to answer some of my questions.
I've gotta a nasty 1995 MIYANO MSV-43 VMC w/ Fanuc OM-C controls that came out of Zollner pistons in Illinois. It was used in a cell that made pistons for the 7.3 International diesel. This machine was so gross, it was like cleaning a septic tank... something I haven't done but may as well have after cleaning this thing up. I have no prior experience with CNCs or Fanuc or much machining for that matter but I'm learning. I've replaced the linear guides, ball screws, chased down numerous wiring problems, tweaked the 900 parameter list and finally got it making chips and made an ashtray to hold the end mills that I've train wrecked.
Today I got a #329 alarm and I'm removing the encoder right now. Is there anything that I should look out for?
Thanks a bunch guys!
