    Hey guys, well now the drive motor has gone out i should say.. It first started as i would run the machine down the lane it would go about 4 feet , stop , then come back. Well the other mechanic ran into the same issue. Now that i have it proped up i was running the machine , the drive motor work for a few runs then it just stopped working. the buffer motor works fine, I can hit the start button and it just keeps running.

    I have checked all the wiring to make sure there was no loose ones. There are no kinks in the belts or chains to stop it from not working.

    Does anyone else have any idea what I should be looking for ?

    There are DBA Excel, Phoenix, and other AMF Summits or Silver Bullets for sale at reasonable prices

          In your area I would contact Bowling Supply Company in Nashville or Ace Mitchell in Ohio. Both of them have good lane machine techs.
