  • Sweep motor coasting.

    Apoligies if this does not deserve a new thread.

    16 lanes of AMF 82/70. Lane 16 suddenly interlocking after some activity on the lane (say 15 frames).

    The sweep motor is definately running on.

    Swapped out the motor 3 times - no joy.
    Swapped the MP chassis 3 times - again, no result.
    Swapped out the capacitors - guess what. Still the same...

    The only thing left at the back of my mind is the 'offspot kit'....

    1 inch x 11 inch carpet strap - drill a small hole in each end
    Secure the strap with a wire tie
    Operate pinspotter and tighten strap enough to stop coasting

    30 gearbox bust same idea:

      Check the sweep cams, levers, and switches. Also, check the M2 relay, it could be sticking. May have a bad term in C1-C2 plugs.

        What about bad C1 pins for the sweep, sweep wiring in the front wireway, or problems with the sweep motor cord?


        • #5
          I don't have MP chasis but mach.side c1 pins was my thought. ( don't forget the sweep rev. sw. it can cause some wierd things)

            Move the table motor cable over after it starts coasting and test it. If it comes to a dead stop then you know it is in your sweep wiring circuit. Just a loose screw in the plug could do you in.

              Could be contactor in chassis or P.C.board heating up and breaking down Bob.
              Give me a ring.

              MP Chassis Tester

              Good morning,
              I have built a tester for the MP Chassis for the 82-70 machines. Instead of using the cam switches
              I am using relays. My question is to anyone that may...

              4:1 Timing off..

              *sigh* Hello friends..

              I had a 4:1 go bad and I've never seen or done one before. Trying to search the depths of the forums, YouTube videos, it didn't seem too bad....

              Adapting the Bluffton end cap & terminal board kit to Franklin BE (and FE) motors.

              Left a rant about this in the bowling forum…

              I’ve already repaired a a number of Franklin FE motors using the Bluffton-style end cap and terminal board kit (090-004-582)....

              Turret clutch rebuild

              At what thickness do you replace the clutch face.
              Is there a minimum dimension from the clutch face to the rivet.


              Solderless relay conversion

              Is anyone running the solderless relays on the accelerators? How do you like them? What brand? How difficult to convert was it? Would love the feed back as I'm about to switch...
