Move the telescopic conveyor in the exiting position.

Does it mean move the TC from another postion to exiting position? Or does it mean move the telescopic conveyor when it is in the exiting position?

I am afraid it won't help. The context and the sentence are not related. I couldn't get anything from the context.

Context is all important..
If you can't supply the context it's nigh on impossible for us to give advice that has universal application.

Just like I said, it won't help. The context won't help. But you just didn't trust me.

I am an engineer and recognise, from the newly provided context, exactly what is going on.
The positive rudeness in your last reply, however, disinclines me from making any further comment.

Automoon, you have been asked in several of the threads you have started to provide more context. As you have been told, isolated words and phrases frequently mean little.

If you don't trust us to be telling the truth when we say this, then you may as well not start new threads.

I am sorry. I am unlucky today and many things go wrong. So I am not good tempered.
Sorry, R21

I am not not trusting you, rather it's that you don't trust me.
You keep on asking for more context but why not give the most frequently used meaning of the sentence or all the possible meanings of the sentence? I don't give you the context because I believe they won't help. It's not a question of trust.

Most words have real meaning only in context. What is the point of us spending time listing possible meanings that may not be correct in your context? You believe that context will not help, but we are telling you that it is often essential. Either give us context, or we simply won't bother with your questions.

This thread has wasted enough time. If you have questions about any other words/phrases, start them in a fresh thread. Give the thread a helpful title and provide sufficient context. (see my signature, below).
