  • Jackscrew repair

    Lane 8 was low on the opposite of the ball door. I tore the pit apart and the last mechanic had taken the allen tool out of the jackscrew. I tried to crank it down and level the machine up but it was frozen. I fixed it by taking a 7/8 socke and putting it under the jackscrew. Just lifted up the machine with a prybar and slid it under. Thought I would share this fix.

    I hope you used a good socke like a snap on so it doesn't break down the road. :p CRUD

      Re: Jackscrew repair

      We had a problem something like that... when they installed the new side after the fire, they only used 1/2" and 5/8" plywood under the machines, and after they ran a few months, the legs wore thier way right through the floor. We made spacer legs out of 1/4" steel plate with 1" pipe rings welded to them to spread out the weight a bit. We can raise and lower them by putting 3/4" washers in the bottom of the pipe sections.

              Dutch, I'll try to post it tomorrow. I was going through some stuff from a few years ago and found a bag full with the number on it.

                  Dutch,

                  They look like common grade 8 flat washers.
                  Size 3/4.

                    King,

                    I think you're thinking of something else. The thing that I'm talking about actually looks like a hockey puck.
