Thanks, Igzazio. I understand your explanation of your method... basically you're installing the head on the carrier before installing things into the housing. I reversed the disassembly procedure given by Tony Duell in his Sept 2005. This makes the print head installation on the carrier last, after everything else is in place. But, I don't see why that should make any difference as long as the head is properly positioned in the carrier.
Does anyone know exactly what typically causes the fracture? For example, is it:
a. Improper positioning in the slot it's supposed to register in on the carrier?
b. The head being pushed too far or not far enough into the carrier?
c. Simply overtightening?
d. The head interfering with the cam?
In other words, just saying "be careful" doesn't help if one doesn't know what to be careful about.
I haven't removed it yet, but I will now and see if there any clues.
