What methods or techniques do you use to resolve a horizontal bolt bound condition when performing a routine alignment task? Do you ever slot the foot bolt holes? Do you beg for more time from the powers-that-be to allow you to attempt to reposition the driven component? We have encountered what we believe to be situations where the OEM has not adequately aligned the component and modifications to the mounting base is required. Does slotting the holes of the feet have an adverse long or short term affect? Is there a maximum that a foot hole can be slotted? Your input is greatly appreciated.
