  • new pins

    hey guys,
    this is for the guys who are running 82-30's.
    when you instal a new set of amf pins do you have problems with pins slipping out of the toggles when the pin goes past the apex head first? it usually takes us 2 - 3 pin washes to get rid of the slippery coating, in the mean time we are constantly watching for jammed pinwheels. this set of pins has already cost us 2 shafts out of the be box. the second one was courtesy of a slack casual not realizing that if a pin falls out once then it will probably do it again,and it did and cost us $150 for a shaft.

    I am going to do the 1 pin in each machine to see where our problems are.
