  • oil level glass leak

    What is the best method to remove the oil level glass? I am inquiring for another center and they have model A pinsetters. Many thanks.

    empty the gearbox oil and using a spanner undo the oil level glass nut or if you have a large enough socket would be easier may have to drop off the release lever and gearbox dashspot been a while since i worked on those
    im never wrong just askme

      Definitely socket, extension and ratchet. I had one break when trying to remove. Twisted the top straight off it leaving the threads in the box. When replacing, just a snug fit is all that is needed.

      If the glass is being removed to clean it, consider making a dipstick to measure oil level and forget the site glass.

          Yep. Agree with Lonnie. Not many times I disagree with Steve but, this is one of them. Using a dipstick is much easier than maintaining the sight glass.

                  Here's mine.... I had to tag it "SAVE !!" as the former owner would toss anything he didn't think needed to be there. I made a number of special tools to remove broken deck bolts which were always located in a tray next to my tool box. One day I came in to find the entire tray had been thrown out !! I asked him if he knew where they were. He said: In the dumpster as they had been on that shelf for years. I told him I had been replacing broken deck bolts for years and this was an ongoing project. He just shrugged his shoulders and walked out.
