  • Oil head timing problem?

    Hoping someone can help me. I've been struggling with a consistent oil pattern. The problem i'm having is if you play like the 8-11 board area you are fine, but if you miss right it has no chance of recovering, and if you miss left it hooks a lot. Even the straight up bowlers have this problem. In January the oil head belt broke and I replaced it and was wondering if it may be out of time a little. Here's my pattern for some help. Thanks in advance.

    50ml

    12-12 3 18
    2-2 0 26

    2-2 0 30 - 32'

    Your issue is lack of reverse buffer drop - when you buffer hits the lane at 41' it dumps a bunch of oil there

    8-8 2 14
    10-10 2 18

        Thanks King, I will put in and try. I'm trying to talk the owner into getting the reverse buffer drop upgrade.I told him it would make a big difference but I don't think he thinks it's worth it.

            OK King, I think i'm going to go nuts. I put your pattern out for a 3 man league tonight and i'm watching them bowl. If they got the ball right of 7, they either missed the head pin or washed out. If they got the ball in around 10 or 11 they went high. There seems to be no hold at all, and we know how bowlers need the hold in the middle. Don't know what to try next. Hoping you have a suggestion. Also, i checked and pump is set at 50.

              Scores were much better the 3rd game. There was a 290, 260, 2 250's, and a 230 in a 24 man league.

                  You said you replaced the head belt. Did you do the timing adjustment? Is the cleaner head in time with the oil head? Verify these first before tweaking.
