When you say right end winding bracket would that be from in garage looking at back of door? Would just like to make sure I am getting the right part
That would be the right side from inside the garage looking out.
Can i replace my broken torque master which is no longer available with the torquemaster plus. Would i need any additional parts?
Yes, you can. To upgrade to the Plus you will need to purchase new springs, cable drum assembly, and winding assembly. All in the Plus style. You can get all of those parts here by selecting the Plus style spring and adding the plus upgrade kit below the product options. https://www.waynedaltonparts.com/products/wayne-dalton-torquemaster-spring
I have two identical single car original torquemaster garage doors 8 ft wide by 7 ft high weighing 77 pounds - I have owned the home for 14 years but don\'t know how long the doors have been with the house built in 1975. Each door has an original winding ratchet gear on both ends indicating a two spring door from the literature; however, there is no double spring option for the 77 lb door weight. The four cable drum assemblies are very worn with some cracking and would be best replaced. I have both door tubes down - the protruding spring on each side disappears into the tube until it hits what sounds like the end of the (other part of the) spring but neither end will pull out of the tube. It seems like this is a single spring system and the spring is broken somewhere in the middle. Question 1: did older single doors have a two-spring system? Question 2: what could be preventing the broken springs from exiting the tubes? Question 3: can/should the doors be upgraded to the torquemaster plus system?
Yes, some of the first Torquemaster spring setups would have two springs for a door of that weight. They don't make them that light anymore, so we now use a single spring to lift a door up to a much higher weight.
When the spring breaks, tension is released. That can make it difficult to remove springs from the tube. Dirt inside the tube can also cause a problem. The tube is completely hollow, so there shouldn't be anything inside holding the springs other than their anchor cones and spring tension. You may have to use force to remove them.
We recommend upgrading to the plus style so that all of your assemblies and winding parts are up to date and easily replaceable if they get damaged. The winding assembly for the original style is no longer made, and the plus style winding assembly isn't cross compatible with the original spring. If you strip a gear out trying to reinstall the original style spring, you have to upgrade to the plus and get the plus spring, winding assembly, and cable drums. This is why we recommend the upgrade to prevent additional expense and time during install.
Can I purchase just the plastic end cap part rather than the complete kit? That\'s all I need.
Individual pieces of this kit aren't sold separately. Sorry!
Torque Master 130117; is this a correct model number. The right gear is damage and may need replacement.? What part number should be order, would like to confirm if possible before ordering?
The original style winding assembly is no longer made. If you need gears for the original style, you will not be able to get them. Plus and original style parts aren't cross compatible. You will have to upgrade to the plus system to replace that part. To upgrade to the Plus you will need to purchase new springs, cable drum assembly, and winding assembly. All in the Plus style. You can get all of those parts here by selecting the Plus style spring and adding the plus upgrade kit below the product options. https://www.waynedaltonparts.com/products/wayne-dalton-torquemaster-spring
