T1 under the hood

Post by Cole Gaskins » Thu Jun 10, 2010 8:48 pm

What's the best way to get inside the Taurus 1? I want to check the date of manufacture and I don't want to screw up something.

Hey Cole,

Just be happy to know that it was probably built in the last 6-8 months...please don't risk damaging your T1 and having to pay to have it shipped back to Moog for service. Maybe a Moog Staffer can cross reference the S/N and manufacture date for you.

Also, for us curious ones, just so we don't have to open our units to see what's inside, maybe a Moog Staffer can pass some internal shots for those who like to drool over technology.

Moog Staffer please check in here ___________________

I'm talking about the first generation Taurus.

Place the T1 face down on a carpet or soft surface.

Look for two large screws along each of the aluminum extrusions at each side of the unit.

Remove these screws and the pedal assembly separates from the shell. Everything is accessable from there.
