  • AMF 82/70A

    New to the club and would like to say its awesome!

    Subject at hand...take a look at the cool post by TheGman143 in "other pinsetting equipment" of the AMF 82/70A. Now, I'm a rookie mechanic (3 years), but I noticed something interesting about this machine. On 8270s that I have seen, there are extra recesses in the rear control box for non-existent switches (Dist MTR CB), (Dist Zero), (Bin CB), and (Dist CB.). Since it appears that the MODEL "A" has all these motors and functions, is that where those came from?? Did they not update the control box cover? Or was there another model before the 82/70C (our machines) that also used these??? What do ya think?

    Check back in earlier posts for info on the rollover 70 machine. Probably 3 months ago!

      Personally knowing two people who were involved in the development of the 70, I can be fairly sure of the following:

      The clear plastic on the box was not reworked when B&C models came out because the cost was ridiculously high. So, subsequent machines had places for switches where switches didn't go.

      Same is true with shuttle cam (timing is a bit off), and chassis mount(though that problem was solved with the suggestion that the chassis should be unclipped from the mount, slid sideways, then unplugged) and 7-pin/main link (though that problem was solved later).

      Also, it has been suggested that a version of the MP was nearly ready when the 5-board entered production, but worries about Brunswick's competition and faith in the 5-board's ability ruled it out until much later.
      I notice in the 70A pictures that the chassis is a big unwieldy beast.

      The pictures from A manuals are incredible! Thank you verrahmuch for posting them!

      I wish I could see an A machine. This is too much.

        Funny that this post is here. At my old center we found uses for the empty spaces. Some of the things we did were "Cont. CCD/ Cont. RPO" cycle switch via 3-way toggle. Day/Blacklight switch via 3-way toggle for dual pindeck lights. (what a pain) AMF's RPO relay. (What a waste).

        Well thats just like your opinion man...
