"Temporary movie for" ? I believe it should be a permanente movie. Don't delete it, as it is part of the question, and it will make the question incomplete for future readers. – Denilson Sá Jan 8 '12 at 22:57
Okey I won't delete it – Jkguitar Jan 9 '12 at 17:46

There are some glitches with redstone, the most likely cause is that it's the direction which the contraption is facing is causing the delays not to work.

The two sets of pistons are changing state at exactly the same time, but one set has to be handled first, due to the different orientations of the pistons, in the second one they are changing in the wrong order causing this glitch.

so theres nothing to do but hope for a fix? – Jkguitar Jan 9 '12 at 17:47
@Jkguitar It can't be fixed, not really, your best bet is to rotate the mechanism and try and get it to fit. – Ronan Jan 9 '12 at 18:16
I rotated the mechanism but it didn't work anyway – Jkguitar Jan 18 '12 at 19:27
@Jkguitar Did you try all rotations, because that should be the problem. – Ronan Jan 18 '12 at 19:41

The orientation of redstone contraptions can affect how they work.
