  • AMF 3000 Solid State Chassis

    Ok guys...I have 2 AMF 3000 Solid State Chassis(looks like 2 chassis stacked on top of each other)I cannot get a strike cycle with these!!...If I put on an old stlye chassis I get a strike cycle.Table wiring is fine as I have continunity from J-26 to J-27.I'm thinking I might have to re-wire something or use a jumper of some sort.I'm not sure.Other than no strike cycle these chassis run fine.Any Ideas??....Thanks....I have 82-30's with chassis above table motor if that helps at all.

    I am not familiar with these chassis. I have never even heard of them. Where did you get 'em?
    Can I have some more info on them. What are the advantages/disadvantages? [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img]

      There are only a few centers in the US that still have them. Not sure who’s doing your board repairs but I know of a company that fixes them. If you need some tec assistance...call Jay @732-363-3421. He’s a pretty nice guy...I'm sure he will help you out. Just tell him I gave you the number.

              I think I stopped by that place once -- don't they have that funky joystick scoring?

                Don49er: Good luck with your problem. I was just wondering if you knew about the other differences in the AMF 3000 pinspotter. You obviously don't have the complete 3000 machines because they all would have backend-mount chassis and refurbished 6525's built around 1975. And since you only have 2, they must have been obtained later on. But I have a manual on the machines [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img] and the sweep carriage uses a shock instead of the short adjusting link. People I've talked to in the 30's world say that will probably help save sweep components from ball hit by absorbing more energy.
                If you,re interested, I'll thumb through the book and see what other innovations AMF put into the 3000 and get you some part numbers.

                  HI DON49ER,

                  THE BASIC PROBLEM IS THAT WITH THE 3000 CHASSIS IT USES EARTH RETURNS FOR MOST OF ITS CIRCUITS INSTEAD OF LOOP RETURNS. FOLLOWING IS THE DIRECTIONS STRAIGHT FROM THE MANUAL.
                  REMOVE THE WIRE #WH K FROM P16, THE ONE THAT GOES TO THE TABLE PLUG, AND CONNECT IT TO P25 (EARTH). THIS CHANGE PROVIDES A GROUND SIGNAL THRU THE GRIPPER SWITCHES (SW6) TO THE CHASSIS FOR USE AS A STRIKE INPUT.
                  THERE ARE OTHER CHANGES REQUIRED FOR YOUR PINDICATION TO WORK, BUT THAT DEPENDS ON STYLE OF MASK.
                  I HAVE'NT WORKED WITH A 3000 CHASSIS FOR 15 YEARS NOW BUT I DO KNOW THAT THEY WERE A GREAT CHASSIS. WE HAD SEVERAL CENTRES USING THEM HERE IN OZ.
                  HOPE THIS HELPS.
                  LEN.
                  Regards,

                  Len.

                    hi don,
                    got your email. i'll put together what i have and photo copy it then possibly fax it to you. can you email me your fax number if you have one. at the moment my email has apparently got a virus so i won't reply to you via e. i think the first problem could be board related. the second one could be with the connection from the p box to the j strip. try swapping j26 and j27 around.when you say the table was rewired, do you still have wires going to all the terminals of the sw6 switches or just to the strike side? i am back working on 30's (have to update my profile) and my machines have a circuit board which eliminates all the original k-l wiring and just uses the pinlite signal circuit. the circuit board is located in the p box.

                    regards,

                    len.
                    Regards,

                    Len.

                      Len...Yes the 1st problem was indeed a board problem.The second problem--I have not looked into yet.Will try switching J-26/27.All sw6 switchettes on all my machines only have the two front wires hooked up(strike cycle)the green wire and short black ground wire have been eliminated.Fax not working right now.Will send you my address.Thxs...Don
