  • Chassis question?

    I'm doing sevice work at a 10 lane center. They have a mix of 6 SS chassis with creative solutions boards and 4 MP chassis with 2 different style bds, 2 spare SS chassis (1 working) and 1spare MP chassis (not working) with 1spare board (working). They are also running AcuscoreII and all are short X cycle and sweep rev on gutter - 1 pin count There is not a lot of money and I would like to see 1 style with a couple spare chassis. All of the chassis need work (contactors, wire nuts, pins ,sockets, blocks), my question is which way to go to have 1 style of chassis

      I would go with all SS Chassis if possible

              You know, I totally love the MP chassis, so much room in there to work. It's a really good chassis but it can also be VERY touchy sometimes. A good SS chassis, eventhough it is cramped in there (you can clean it up a little), with the right board conversion is a real tank and will damn near last forever- and they are not tempermental either. In fact I have 50 of these damn things still running without so much as a peep, and they are at least 35-40 years old, I think proves they are very good. The only issues we ever have (and you would think with 50 of these running it would be a lot but actually happens very infrequently) with them are contactors wearing out and sometimes C1 pins but on any chassis that is normal so I would not even count that at all. I want to upgrade to the MP just so our main 50 and separate 9 lanes all are the same (the private lanes are MPs) and so the scoring will short cycle in the main center but I think a better idea would be for them to spend the money on the expander upgrade for the SS chassis.

                Same here, SS chasis with new contactors and omega-tek (or other) with new gold c1 pins. Backend motor pins doubled up or bypassed, you can go 10 yrs. for sure. MP's are'nt as user friendly, ( with pinchaser type people) and any power issues.

                  One thing I don't like about the MPs is once the cycle starts it's locked in until it's done. With the SS chassis that is not the case. If I want to stop it mid cycle or before the time delay runs out I just press the stepper button, or if the sweep is at 270 and I want it to go to zero, stepper button.

                    Solid states with MK-70's and expanders... Can't go wrong, we'd pull maybe one chassis a year if that for something other than replacing sweep or table contacts. They rule, just run and run with no issues
                    All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

                      That's what I meant by pin chasers people, bartender, or the long time bowler that worked there 20 yrs. ago, easily screwed up by wrong button pushing.

                        I agree with all SS chassis but the last time I tried to buy SS chassis for a spare they were hard to find. Maybe someone out there is in the same situation?

                          We run MPs with very few problems, and we go thru them fully once every 2 weeks.

                              We run SS with a mix of omega tek and xop. Every 3months I try to inspect C1 pins especially. Other than the occasional contactor change they are bullet proof.
