  • swapping out '30s

    Being a brunswick guy, I thought I'd ask the AMF mechs out there ... know a center that has OOOOOLD 30s (like there's any new ones) that are getting very tired.

    Can an 82-70 machine be put on the same kickbacks that a 30 is on, what modifications would be necessary (if any), or would the kickbacks have to be replaced along with the machines?

    Obviously, it would be much easier to drop a new machine onto the existing kickbacks, but what things would you need to watch out for doing so??

    THanks for any input you can supply:

    Kevin, I was told years ago that new kickbacks will havr to be used. The length and height are different. What the diff is I don't know. Good luck.

        70's can be placed on the same kickbacks as the 30's. true 70's requirements are shorter. but its well woth it. in a house now where same kickbacks were/are used for '70's all's well

          Yes you can use the same kickbacks, they just need to be cut down a little, I have put 70s in when 30s came out(2 houses last year) but I can't remember the height.We had to trim height a little,length will be ok.If you can't get the info let me know and I'll get the #s for you.
