        the pad goes in the same as the old pad,it's shape is like a saw blade :p and they give you two more pads to add on by drilling 4 holes in the plate,but I didn't bother to put them on.the problem your having with the humpbacks is the reason I won't buy them, where you going to get the belt if they go out of business [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img] you'll have to put your kickers back in or buy pbl's [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img] good luck CRUD [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif[/img]

          I put out about 60 units and have zero problems with my kickers. I use all the original AMF parts in the ball door and murrey round kickers wheels with one spring on them. I tried the full contact kickers but I had better luck with the murrey ones. They seem last longer and if a ball does get stuck, they don't grind down to half thier size.
          Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!

            Bob,

            I do have a couple of tip on the humpy belt problem. I had 2 separate. They told me to take the ball guides off. I did so. But the machines I had the problems with were the ones I shaped the lift arm to the door rings. I now install the units with the lift arm with the radius supplied to me. This seems to have cured the belt problem. I still have 2 of their white belts in service with the lift arm installed with the factory bend. I havent seen any of the black new belts separate at all.

              Try this, it will save you 24.00 if it works. Take an old ball lift belt and cut a piece off the side of it,the rib beside the "v". Cut it about 2" long or what ever your main plate width is. Clean the belt piece and the filler plate about 1-2'' above the original ruber srip on the filler plate. In other words,put it in the same place you would the zot strips. Use a real good super glue and watch ball calls go down the drain. You might have to experiment a little to get it inthe right place. I had a couple of lanes that had to go in a different place,like right above the original ruber strip and right below the ruber strip. Trial and error should get you there. Make sure all parts are in good shape and installed properly-should fix almost all ball calls. Would still rather have PBLS.
              Let me know if this works for ya.
