Taylormade Adjustable Driver Help

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I removed the adjustment screw from the head so I could send the head in for painting. I was wondering if anyone could give some advice on how to reinstall the screw in the head with the o-ring attached to the screw from inside the hosel. Also is the o-ring even necessary or will deleting it cause a rattle or vibration in the shaft.

What's the driver? 

 

Can't you just screw it back in using the same tool you used to take it out?

Also I would put the o-ring back in. Those are generally pretty important.

It's that really long club at the top of the bag that usually wears a pretty hat ... but that's not important right now.

Agreed.  Probably gonna want to keep that one.  (But what do I know ... I still haven't removed the sticker off my driver shaft from 2 years ago) ;)

It's a TM Stage 2 driver. I think that the o-ring (actually a flat rubber washer) just keeps the adjustment screw from falling out and getting lost during the adjustment but I could be wrong.

The moderators like to have fun sometimes. ;). I think it goes well with your username, but you can obviously always change it. :)

I really don't think that screw is supposed to back out, without looking I would assume it's turned down in the shoulder area and when the two halves are put together it captures the screw because the washer is a smaller diameter than the threads or the throat it goes through.

I was going to add that washer/o ring is probably real important in the tightening spec of the club, remember the wrench they supply you with is a torque wrench with a specific torque setting and the washer is probably integral in the engineering especially if it has any rubber insert to it.

Well I think I'm going to put some glue on the washer so it stays on the end of the adapter as I insert it into the hosel. Once the shaft is in the hosel I can attach the screw through the outside of the head and I should be good to go. You're probably right about the washer being part of the torque process.

Thanks for the replies.
