  • My back end put back

    Sorry for my bad english, but i am french.
    I have a big problem, my back ends put back, it causes that many balls blocked between the front roller and the pin deck.
    I want to forward the back end, but i don't know what is the split in inch between the front end and the back end, and i also don't know what is the tall of the back end between the pin deck.
    If somebody could help me ???

    Thank you.

    First off your english is alot better than my french. You can try putting washers under your bounce plate on the ball exit side to raise it up. You can install a ball idling kit on the bounce plate or a quick fix until something permenant screw a piece of wood to the back of the tail plank. If you take a good look at the ball when it is idling there you will notice that it is not touching the tail plank. The ball is sitting in a trough between the front edge of the bounce plate and the front roller. Good Luck.

      Front end assy to pin deck = 35-3/16" Measure from lower edge of the top bar

      Front end assy to 7-10 line = 16"
      Back end assy to front end assy = 3/8"
      Pin deck to front roller = 22"

      Good luck,

          Barouf: the relationship of pit to pin deck is as follows:
          From the 7-10 line (center of pinspots) to the front edge of the steel kickbacks (pit side plates): 6 3/4" maximum.
          This can be reduced if you have room up to the wood kickbacks, as long as your distributor clears the back of the bin, and the 8 aand 9 pins roll off the distributor without locking up at the butt plate in the bin.
          Good Luck! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]
