  • Brunswick lift rod cover installation

    Ok I think I have finally found a way to get these stubborn things on without soap or goo. I thread a plastic grocery bag through the rubber cover.then I put the rod into the bag opening that is sticking out of the cover.Just push it on and cut off the excess hanging out the ends. The rest of the bag just stays in there.

    I use an air compressor and baby powder. Very easy like this.

      I put Brunswick lift rod covers on all upsweeps for the Spectrum Ball Returns.
      An air chuck, baby powder, and hose clamp and you are on easy street. Sometimes easy street is a little frustrating, but better than the alternative, The covers work better than anything I've found. I also have Stahl's covers on PBL upsweeps.
      Absolutely No Problems.

        ffejbowl, now this isnt in the AMF manual but..... Quality sell's a fitting that will fit in the end of L/R cover. It's fairly inexpensive. The best way I have found to install them is first off you must get the rod clean. SPOTT LESS!! Then cut a peice of the cover aprox. 4 inches longer then the rod itself. You will need to put a bolt in one end of the rod to keep the air from blowing right through. If you can find something to make a gasket out of, that's even better. (a rubber gromit from a 82-30 spotting cup work's well if you have 30's that is) clamp the strait end of the rod in the vise laying horazontily, about 4 inches or so is good. Rub baby powder all over the rod(IM going to catch hell for that one) and then put the cover on as far as you can (about 4 inches) and insert the special tool in the other end. You want to set your air press. at about 25 Lb.. Now connect the air hose to the tool and gentelly work the cover on. It's very easy this way. Only takes a few second's to put it on once you have the air hooked up. When your finished cut the cover flush at the top of the rod's and I would recomend that you cut 3" off from the bottom and put 3" peices of the OEM cover on the bottom. This is the big wear point and once the cover's start to split it dosnt take long for the split to run up the rod.

        Hope this help's

            So I guess all you guys have a compressor. Maybe I need one.

              This is how I did it :

              Make sure you have a valve(or something els to close the air flow)at the exit of your compressor. Put the whole tube(about 30 ft.) on the compressor and place the compressor on the cat-walk near the ball-lift, also take a sharp knife with you. Disconnect the upsweep at the topside(where the ballwiperclothbracket-what a word-is mounted),and leave the downside connected(otherwise-besides that it is more work-air can go through the upsweep-pipe, making your compressor useless). Put some baby powder in the tube and a little bit on the upsweep. Put your thumb on the end of the tube to close it and start the compressor or open the valve.After a little pressure has been build up in the tube, put te tube on the upsweep and push it over right to the bottom. Be sure it's comletely down,hold the tube steady, close the valve and make a little cut in the tube (at about where the pipe ends)to let the air escape(hold the tube steady untill all the air is out of the tube).
              If the air is gone cut the entire tube of the upsweep, then go to the next pipe and start all over again.The tube will ofcourse get less longer after each pipe. This way you don't need a special tool and you safe a lot of tube.
              I hope I did write this down a little bit readable and without dirty talk(not sure about that).
