  • Replacement Covers for 8230

    I happen to work at a center where the "a" mechanic is old and doesnt seem to beleive in keeping the covers on the junction boxes, and the pin-counter covers on. in fact, he threw them all away. This is bad since the cover helps keep the wire on the counter. This causes problems and since he is retiring soon, we need to get our hands on some covers. also i would like to know more about the Amf 4400 series pinspotter.the 9 foot tall giant.

    Well, I kind of doubt that you will still be able to get new covers for your machines. However, if you can find a center that has recently upgraded to 70's or is going to soon, that would be the only way I know you could get some. As for the 4400 pinspotter, what do you already know about it. I don't know a whole lot, but I might be able to tell you a few things.
    Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!

      Need covers for pin counters Hmm? They would be thin sheet metal approximately 1 3/4 wide and approximately 6 inches in length with a rectangle hole near the edge. Correct?

      I would suggest looking here on the Internet. I have 15 or 20 bookmarks for distributors of parts. Many of them have used parts. As many centers are closing down, I would think parts would become available. You might find a wonderful deal on some complete used pin counters, if spare parts is your bag. Also Greg at Hilltop Bowling Inc. in Ohio 1-937-882-6605 has used parts for sale, he might be able to help you out.

      If you would like me to e-mail you the list of bookmarks let me know, I'll send it right out to you. Let me know how you make out, if you cannot find the covers, contact me and we could arrange my making you some. How many lanes need covers? Also, just wondering, are your counters mounted on top or back of your distributor? Anybody use pin wipers on the distributors?

        Just a quick thot...

        The '4400' was not the "9 foot giant", but was the second chassis version of the 82-30. The beastie you have in mind was called the 'AMF Pindulator'.


        --- Just got a little center to call my own. Let someone else run the counter... I'll be running all over the place!

          As far as the 4400's go, a neighbor center of ours just put in 82-90's 2 years ago, his house had 4400's till that point, what info do you need, I'll try to find out for you.

            The 4400 was a great machine! The chassis was driven by a chain drive to the table. It had a replacable stepper wiper chassis box. Let's not forget the stop pin through the dist.head or the solid pin wheel! You haven't lived until you've replaced a cushion assy., up and over the pin wheel during league play! I almost forgot the nylon dist.gear!
            My favorite 82/30 machine would have to be the 6525 10th frame(pr 6&amp;7). The chassis was mounted over the b.e. motor, which made it easy to observe from a rear catwalk.
