  • Another Jerry rig

    Some of our pinwheel belts are spliced.

    One of the ends of the belt on #1 ripped out tonight.....5 frames into the 1st shift womens league [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img]

    I drilled new holes in the belt and wire tied the 2 belt ends together.

    The lane completed the league without another problem [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif[/img]

    Are you planning to fix that when you finish that Back End Motor rebuild? [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

            Of couse what color of wire-tie you use matters, It was a womens league. And if you have a woman owner you better color code the shop towels too.

                IF I had 82-70s, I would keep a few splices like the green belts used on the 82-30s have. Just my pennies worth.

                  Heck... we run those green belts on our '70s. The only thing you have to do is take the tensioner off... it bends the belt backwards and breaks the clip. For some reason, the greenies will run without the tensioner just as well as a regular belt runs with it.

                  Makes it easier to change belts, too...

                              Ah Yes, Aligator clips. Many 82-30's have them. Do they still sell them? I wish AMF would have made a spliced belt for the 82-70 from the beginning. I hate having to unbolt the distributor just to get the pinwheel belt on and off. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img]
