  • Ba-Doiiing!

    Well, I'd originally intended this to be a question but I've found the answer.

    I was napping on the catwalk of a machine, when I noticed a strange noise coming from it every 8th frame or so.

    "Ba-Doiiiing! "

    After fooling around for a while, I noticed that the Front Filler Pad 000 024 678 had one of it's front ends bent in and loose. So, I guess that whenever a bigger-diameter ball went through it, it went, "Ba-Doiiing!"

    I didn't take it out, but I'd wager that there's a big hunk of crap sitting behind it, keeping it from being flush with the frame.

    Just thought I'd share,
    Chaddy

    P.S. No, I didn't drive my car over it, but I'll try that.

    Re: Ba-Doiiing!

    About five years ago a customer has a ball that wouldn't go through the ball door on lane one. I could force it through with alittle push; so I pulled it from the machine and measured it.

    The ball was 1/4" bigger than specs and the ball door was alittle smaller than the others. The two did not work together.

    I walked the ball up front and talked to the customer. The ball was made by Faball and it was a second that he bought off the internet at quite a reduced price.

    So I came to the conclusion that if you want to raise your average and save money, request a second.

      Mike,

      Sorry to disagree with you.......if you want to raise your average.....just move to Toledo, Ohio.

        Hey Jerry
        Just saw your post about high scores in Toledo. I worked at several houses in Toledo from 1969 to 73. That city was score crazy then. Are they back to that again?
