    AB Dick 9840 Gripper problems

    I pulled the gripper assembly out of my 9840 and replaced the grippers. Cleaned everything up and reinstalled. Got the little spring on the side hooked back up and now the jaws don't open. What did I do wrong?

    This problem is fixed thanks to Mark and Tim. Loosened the 6 nuts holding the grippers and let the paper stops pop back and set to proper setting tightened up and all is well. What I intended to do all along was to stop my envelopes from wrinkling and that problem was solved by getting the back cylinder back in parallel. All is well in Daves printworld now.
