            I think he's saying he glued the rubber into the bracket King. He said he drilled and bolted the bracket in.


            My question is how did you know the retainer broke? one time out of 5 maybe I heard it making a horrible noise, the rest of the time it just cuts its self off and falls down. So your roller is walking out of the retainer and pulling the pit sheave against the kickback? front roller not giving enough tension maybe?

              I understand what he glued - I have never glued the rubber piece - makes it too hard to get out - even on the ones I have replaced the metal retainer

                thanx guys i did bolt in place, the rubber insert i think put in backwards because one side is flat and other is cuerved smooth and i think the curved side should b placed inward 2 match the roundness of the retainer alowing 4 aflatt surface for bearing 2 rest heading in about an hour will check ,, just lightly glued rubber in place to hold rather than bending little metal edges down to hold in place hope this clerafies will let u know tanx chris,,as 4 catching problem i did not it did cut off however 5 min rolloer replace and emergency cobble trick was able 2 keep full house of bowlers wiening about loosing jackpots insted of broken machine [ lol]
