  • Need help ~ready to throw machine out back

    we have a machine that keeps pushing the 4 pin off spot after u cycle to second ball BUT if u respot the four where it needs to be and cycle it again it will work right we changed the cell about 4 times and the stud for the cell changed the 1 main stud it was bent but if u undo the carb on the 3 cell it will work right no matter if u set a new rack and cycle or what but when u put back the carb on 3 cell it mess up changed the 3 cell cant figure out what it could be the rest of the studs look fine [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img] [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img]

    Check and see if the wire way is bent and contacting the r/c arm.

    Check and see if the bottom of the cup is hitting the top of the pin.

    Check and see if the 1/4 screw is adj. too tight. Make sure the r/c gauge can fit in the r/c closed.

    Make sure the batman cam stop bolt is adj. correctly and the cells are not closing too tight.

        if the carb for the 3 is too tight it can prevent other cells from closing tight.....we had that this past sat on lane 13.....the 4 carb was too short and nothing wuold lock on at all......hope this helps

          three pin finger probably has a groove in the rear bolt which fits thru the rear finger. turn bolt 180 degrees/replace bolt and give a generous amount of grease to the bolt and finger slip opening

            The four-pin hmmmmm I have had things like this as we all have. Depending on what type of linkage you have for the 7 pin I would check that out also. My guess is that something like the wire way is bent and hanging up one of the fingers. I have also seen spotting cups hitting the pin cause this. The rear link is also really close to the four-pin link there may be an issue there.

            One thing is for sure that this will probably be one of those things that will take five days to find the problem and 5 minutes to fix. I hate these kinds of things they are so frustrating! Look close and the problem will reveal itself to you

            Best of luck. There is light at the end of this tunnel
