  • Here's a good one, and it's my fault.

    Lane 35 with a 9800 MP chassis developed a severe sweep drift, sweep does the first guard and run-thru to second then to home but does not stop at home it just drifts thru home and back under the table. Hmmmmmmm.

    Replaced chassis, same o, same o. Hmmmmmmm.

    Replaced C1 21, 22, 23 and 24 machine side OK!

    It started doing it again! Damn it!

    The problem has been solved, and it was STUPID SIMPLE, tell me what was not done. This is just plain silly on me.

    What type of motors are you using? Are you using motors with any breaking system? If not then make sure that the gearbox is not loose, and just to be safe double check that the cams for the sweep are set correctly, if your cams are out by even the slightest amount in advance with a loose gearbox the sweep can dribble a fair amount.

          Chassis side pins were ok, not burnt.

                You forgot to tighten the bolts on the motor head or forgot to tighten down the SA cam

                    Wire off or pin in the wrong place machine side C1 plug. Or a wire got yanked off a terminal in the front wireway.

                            Ding, ding, ding! Winner, winner, chicken dinner! I still don't know how I pulled the terminal loose for TS 27. The one that goes to CSM 2-2. The only thing I can think of is I was a bit rough while replacing the sockets in the C1. Or I wasn't paying attention while cleaning out the front wireway. Probably the latter because I've been finding that our table motor wires are breaking down from heat and age so I replace them, and wires get moved around in the process. The funny thing is the machine ran fine for me the day I was working on it, but when it was bowled on that was enough to knock the terminal and the fun began.

                            I gots to be mo careful.
