    Hey guys, well i got my d-tuna that i got off of ebay in the mail today and i got it all set up and everything. There's only one problem, and that's when i push in the d-tuna it only goes up to Eflat not E. I've been sittin here for like two hours tryin too figure out this thing and it's frustrating the shit outta me. I'm installing it on a Franky replica that i got from Rol. Please Help!

    You sure you installed it all the way? Sounds like you missed something...

    First, make sure the Floyd is flushed, which means it won't pull back.

    Second, Did you replace the locking screw on the Floyd with the new, longer locking screw for the D-Tuna? Very important, Grasshopper.

    Third, tune the E string to D, then lock it down and fine tune it to D. Push down when pushing and pulling that little puppy to alleviate some of the tenison.

    Try it again, and let us know if you got it back to where it can go from E to D [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    they work better when the fine tuner is not engaged at all back your fine tuner out till it won't turn no more, once you have done this turn you little set screw out a bit so it isn't touching the clamp screw, tune your string to D and lock it down, then engage the dtuner and use the set screw to adjust to E.
    Note, once you floyd is older you may have to use the fine tuner screw to make up for lost tention in the clampblock screw spring but that is a few years down the road.

    </font>[/QUOTE]when I say fine tuner I mean the one on your floyd not on the dtuner, I refer to that as the set screw, just so there is no confusion.

    Here is a webpage from the Van Halen site about the D-Tuna that I saw awhile ago.
