    Check your orientor pans, make sure they're pretty close to the pinwheel itself. Should be just enough space so that it doesnt rub the pinwheel. When theres a gap there you'll play hell tryin to adjust the kidney. If that's ok, I'd say keep playing with the kidney and also wipe the o-pan out (in case it's oily, dirty, or whatever) and see what happens [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]
    All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

        4. Mount to lane 2 with the top end still up with the rolled edge toward pinwheel
        5. Use cushion shock spacers and 5/16 bolts and nylock nuts.
        6. Watch FPS # go up.

        Have you slowed down your pinwheels? Sometimes that can cause pins to come out head first. I've always thought slowing down the pinwheels was a bad idea. Instead of doing that, all they had to do was make a tackier belt. If you have slowed them down, put the bigger pulley back on and get a rough top belt.

          An ongoing and STILL intriguing thread/post:

          What continually keeps me confused isn't flipping odds w/evens of these kidneys.[Got that much]

          What still confounds myself(and a couple of others I've tried to make heads&amp;tails about this conversion is):

          cushion what shims &amp; 5/16 whats WHERE

          Detailed pictures PLEASE!

          What replaces those rubber thingies &amp;

          Especially how [VISUALLY]!!!

            Throw the old rubber mounts away.

            Use the sleeve inside a cushion shock the xpin goes through fo a spacer.

            Use a 5/16 (1/2 head) bolt and lock nut through the sleeve to secure the kidney.

            Adjust and go.
