  • Preventative Maintenance - Brunswick Jets, A2 - Gum Rubber Ball Rod Cover Install

    The other day I helped a friend at another center install some of the Tan Gum Rubber Covers. Ouch !!! These went on with a battle. Ended up using 45 #s rather than the usual 35 #s. They then went on without too much trouble. It appears that this batch of cover had an inside ID that was much smaller than the older previous Tan Covers. I had put some on at another friend’s center a while ago, but that batch was older and went on very easily at 35 #s. I understand, that Brunswick may be including future shipments with a "Wire Ease" lubricant as folks are having so much trouble getting them on. There is a rumor that Brunswick may be using different vendor for this later batch and hence the smaller ID. I shared my original post with Brunswick Tech Center today: Preventative Maintenance - Brunswick Jets, A2 - Ball Rod Cover Install

    I still am leaning towards using the Gray AP Covers... IMO

    I have a funny story about installing a rod cover.

    Just recently I set off the shop smoke alarm using baby powder and air to install some covers. The smoke detector in the workshop was added about 6 months ago. We're in a shopping centre so that alarm is linked to the centres alarm panel which then calls the fire department. When that happens you're up for a $700 ish call out fee.

    The workbench is directly under the detector which was perfectly lined up with the path of the compressed air and powder when I was starting the cover on the rods. I've never bothered to think about how a smoke detector works so I had no idea the powder was capable of setting it off (I do now )

    Luckily for me they were already in the centre having lunch. In the end they waved the fee. Since then the smoke detector in the shop was replaced with a heat detector.

        Lol, hopefully not. I was told I'd virtually have to put a tighter up to it to false trip it.

        I should've pulled the security footage in the shop to see how fast I ran to call security to tell them it was a false alarm.
