  • Shuttle Adjustment Quickie Tutorial

    The height of the shuttle is adjusted by these rods at the rear of the bin...





    The starting point if you do not have the gauge is 7/8" from the shuttle tubes to the rear channel of the bin, on both sides. Or if you have the gauge use it like this...





    The front to back of the shuttle is adjusted by this rod end, not the rod. Unscrewing the rod end will make the shuttle sit further back.





    The starting measurement if you do not have the gauge is 1-23/32" (that's a goofy measurement but that's what my book says) from the rear shuttle tube to the rear bin channel. Or if you have the gauge use it like this...(it should easily fit in there straight up and down on both sides)





    The square of the shuttle is adjusted by this spring. Ideally it should be in the middle hole but if the shuttle is not square to the bin this spring can be moved to another hole. For example, if the shuttle is further back on the 10 side move the spring toward the 7 side, this will pull the shuttle over to the 10 side and pull the 10 side of the shuttle slightly forward.





    This is just to give an idea of the gap between the cups and pins when the table goes to spot. Remember, the greater the gap the more likely it can double shuttle.



    Also remember, these adjustments and measurements are starting points only and can be affected by various things. Some deviation may be necessary. The bottom line is it should smoothly and consistently shuttle one full set of pins when they are all pushed forward in the bin locations.

        The last picture is with the table at 355......the table travels up to shuttle.......you should always check for interference between the shuttle and the cups during spotting when lowering....do this my operating the machine on 2nd ball without pins.....just trip the bin switch.....I stand inside the machine

          Stand inside the machine...while its running? For the LOTO crowd this can be done safely outside and behind the machine by tripping the bin switch with the pinfork or a long broom handle or stick.

            I just wanted to add my method of squaring up the shuttle. On the side that the gap is the widest, I loosen the clamp stud on the shuttle arm and give it a tap. Then go to the back and give the shuttle boot. (Sometimes two or three.) Tighten the clamp stud and double check your shuttle rod adjustment and go. I have run into a stubborn one once where I had to loosen both sides and block the other side with a wonder bar. I just like to keep the springs in the center hole, cuz we don't use the rear bin rod for shuttle hieght. And I thought that not having the springs in the center hole would create a bind.

                I see the catwalk and the step between machines as ok to stand at while the machine is running. You can easily reach the bin switch from either of these positions. I would never stand inside the machine while it is plugged in as the back motor can run even when the pit switch is off.
                Failed safety course.Question #1:In case of fire what steps do you take? Apparently 'Friggin long ones!" is the wrong answer.

                    That is a major NO-NO according to LOTO. I agree with you, but LOTO does not.

                      This tutorial is great! I didn't realize how you could tinker with the spring. I might try that on our lane 5. Thanks!

                          I do stand on the bounce board.....yes...probably not acceptable these days...

                          To check for clearance....hit the bin switch and shut off the machine - LOTO - then go inside the machine and check for clearance with the shuttle forward and shuttling pins (no pins in bin)....then you can check for clearance safely

                            Was that a reference to increasing safety standards or increasing caloric intake????
