    Re: cups

    Take out the cup is not needed...they get oil soaked and get sticky sometimes....or the pin is a little deformed from play and does not orient right in the cup.

      Re: cups

      I agree with King on the cup liners. Get rid of them, they only cause trouble. You said the cup is plastic so the gap at the bottom should be right, but check it with the gauge just to make sure. If it is too close together it will not let go of some pins. Especially if they are beat up a little. With metal cups, when they pinched together a little all I do is take a long screw driver and CAREFULLY bend is open a little to create the 4 1/2 inch gap. But since the cup is plastic I would try removing the liners. The problem will most likely go away.
      Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!
