My landboard deck warped?

Postby corbett » Fri Sep 09, 2016 8:21 pm

Hello,

To cut a long story short I've just fitted two brand new channel trucks to my used MBS board and like the old trucks, the board doesn't run straight. I thought the old previous plastic hanger was bent but it seems not.

Can my Powerlam (Fiberglass, Maple) MBS board be warped so that only 1 truck runs true(straight). It's wandering to the toe side direction and you can actually see the front trucks is squint.

It could be the springs In the channels not set up completely even. Could be the mountining of the channel slighty offset, could be a deck twist

Does it matter at all?

Do You notice when riding?

If the mounting roles are not even you could ovalise them. Then set the truck straight and tighten.
If its the springs uneven, re-adjust.
If deck is twisted, New deck or don't bother if it doesn't affect riding.

sounds like the board is a bit warped. I would drill out the holes a little bit bigger than usual so you can wiggle the truck around and then align the trucks properly reset them and then tighten it down. Make sure your have those adjusting screws on your channel trucks set right first of course.
