  • 82/70 TABLE YOKES

    Hi guys,Just wondering how many of you level your yokes from both sides as opposed to the way AMF does just from the one side.

    Re: 82/70 TABLE YOKES

    I DO! Thanks for bringing this up. In reality, what you're doing is using the combination square/level on the left side to allow sufficient "toe" so that the pins can be set on spot on their front edges and rocked back as the cups pull away. The set screw handles it and that's that. Matching that haalf-bubble on the right side to the left positions the yoke squarely over the table. That way the 7-pin and the 10-pin ccan get equal toe with similar cup adjustment, provided all the cup gaps are the same (4 1/8"). (I love doing tables!)

      im sure im in the minority.

      Look down the lanes

      If there are ten pins standin....on spot.............perhaps i was there.

      Im usin a quote...

        i apologize for the earlier outburst.

        i use no guages....i simply relative between shuttling & standing on the pindeck.

        Only my lack of common sense is not necesarily<<-----sp???? required

          If I can't get pins on spot I just move the table by way of the slotted holes in the table legs. Don't have to very often but it seems to work for me.

            I find it hard to believe that me &amp; Bowlequip are the only two that level our yokes this way. Has anyone at least tried this method?

              I have never adjusted both sides. On my machines the stop bolt is on the left. Do you guys adjust the right by moving the collar?

                How many of you lay on the pin deck and check for cracks in the yoke? I've thought about doing this. Is it a waste of time? Do the yolks just "go" without warning?

                Does everybody use 3 torsion springs? I've got about 20 lanes with only the back 2 springs on and a box with about 20 used spare springs. It looks like someone in the past took out the 4-5-6 spring for some reason. I can only guess they did it to slow down the yolk warpedge.

                Any input on this?

                    Jonas: Some don't like the third spring because the 8 pin rubs it if the cup is spread a little (see the shiny spot on iy). I don't think it hurts. Besides, if you have three springs, each gets adjusted a little lighter. The book doesn't cover this, but instead of adjusting so that the tighteninng screw is even with the cup/cap gap, it should be backed off until it is even with the top cap nut. Of ccourse, as usual, this is just the starting point.

                    KIng: Check the right side same as the left. To adjust, loosen the appropriate collar that's next to the yoke bearing and very slightly move the whole yoke over on the #1 shaft until you get the same bubble as the left. Do not move the shaft or you'll bind up at the cam follower. Don't do like me...always forgetting to tighten a collar or jam nut!

                    Good table setting! (Salad fork on the left, knife and spoon on the right???)

                        Speaking of yokes, there's a great repair kit out there that beats AMF's hands down! You all have or have seen AMF's yoke repair kit: it's made up of a couple of pieces if shuttle tube material and some bolts, &amp; requires drilling hole in the old yoke. A pretty decent splint, but only for the side. This other kit has a side splint PLUS an X-shaped one for the center front. And both splints require no drilling...just bolt it on! I've used the X-section to hold a yoke together that was completely snapped apart at the "X"...on for a year. A Stahl's exclusive. Price is the same as AMF's single unit.
