  • Humpback Maintence

    We got a humpie installed on a pair, been on for quite some time ive been told. Lately we have been getting Ball return calls on this pair. But as everything in the industry, I have never gotten one on this pair since I started at this center, but the pinchasers have to sit on it. So I sat on it for about an hr and after cleaning the dirty belt I noticed two things. One, a 12lb ball would enter the exit, spin and the paddle would stop half way not allowing the ball to enter fully into the exit. 2nd was the belt condition. As I was cleaning I had a chance to inspect the humps, they felt soft. Is this how there supposed to be, it kinda felt like they were soaked with oil. Any new belts come out? What do you guys out there with this system do to prevent these problems?

      Check in this order.

      1. If the exit is too narrow take off the yellow wings to allow the ball to center under the belt.

      2. Check the lift height. 1/8 gap at the position where the ball give you the most gap.

      3. Belt tension. The belts seem to stretch over the years.

      4. Lift arm adjustment. Maybe the lift arm needs lowered or washers taken out from behind the top stud.
