PRS-13 Repair Stand Info

This park tool stand has a rotating shaft that doesn't want to hold its adjustment anymore. My bikes front tire hits the ground after tightening the bolt. I found a parts diagram but no info on how to disassemble the stand to see what may be causing my problem.

I haven't seen or used the PRS-13, but it looks similar to all of Parks professional stands. It should be a simple as loosening the bolt on top, pulling the bike clamp straight out, and pulling straight up on the bolt assembly. Attached to the bolt are two wedge blocks; these are what tighten against the bike clamp's shaft to keep it from rotating. If it won't hold the bike in the desired position, I would grease the bolt, and make sure there is no (or very very little) grease on the two wedge blocks.

Have you tried looking at the Park Tool site? I fond it there very quickly, they have a PDF https://www.parktool.com/assets/doc/p...ts_5-30-12.pdf of the breakdown of the parts, you should be able to strip and reassemble from that. If that doesn't work, how about dropping them an e-mail/giving them a call for suggestions for replacement parts/a solution to your problem.

Awesome, thank you.

I looked first at the park tool sight and only found the parts diagram. That's when I posted this question. I wanted to make sure it was simple as some equipment is complicated and would necessitate a step by step approach to disassembly. If I have more trouble I will e-mail park tool.
