  • What caused this worn pin

    Recently overhauled some different assemblies and I came across this pin. It was still in use but what surprised me was the location of the pin and the component that caused the wear.

    Anyone want to have a guess where this pin is located and what caused the wear?

    I have seen this before...Old style 180 link and the wrong pin. It should be the pin with the groove in it.
    let me be myself

          Correct. Lucky guess? or have you seen this before?

          I've now done 12 pin detecting links at this centre and this is the first pin that I have found with significant wear. Coincidentally, it was also the first link that I found that had the inner spring greased. The grease had gone hard and I had to actually get a pair of pliers and pull the spring from the link. I reckon only 1/2 to a 1/3 of the spring was actually working, the rest was frozen with grease.

            I've seen this type of wear in the center that I'm currently at in the upper and lower control links for the deck holding hook. Scary to think that this stuff is actually still working
            If its still broken, guess it wasnt in the parts budget.

                Yeh, I've seen similiar wear on those pins but it's not caused by the spring, its the tube that leaves a mark on the pin.

                  I didn't mention it previously but when I pulled tje pin out there was the center of another pin sitting on top of the spring. Nevet teally considered this as a high wear point. You never stop learning hey.

                        It connects the rear of the pin detector link to the bottom of the GB clutch actuator.

                              I used to see that all the time on Japanese pinsetters.
                              Not so much anymore on the older American machines.
