    check your eccentric rollers that the dist. tubes ride on. they might be tight. what will cause this is the tubes are bent.

      I HAVE HAD THAT PROBLEM BEFORE AND I LENGTHENED THE ROD ON DIST. THE ONE FROM FRONT END FINGERS TO TRIP LEVER. WHAT I SAW WAS GOING TO THE 6 SOMETIMES THE 5 THE DIST. WOULD EXTEND AND HIT TO HARD CAUSING DIST. TO INDEX AND SKIP THE 5 OR 6.

      HOPE THIS HELPS

      P.S. YOU WILL HAVE TO ADJUST ONE OF THE ROD ENDS TO DO THIS. MY MACHINES I HAVE TO TAKE BOLT OUT OF ROD END TO MAKE ADJUSTMENT. DO TO ROD ENDS UNLIKE SPOT OR RESPOT RODS.

            Last time I had this all I had to do was adjust the cable. When it would index forward that little bit from the 5 to the 6 the stop blade would move enough to allow it to index, put the cable in proper adjustment and not a peep since [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]
            All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

              THAT IS WHAT I WAS SAYING BUT I HAVE ONLY TWO CABLE AND 62 RODS (64 LANE CENTER). WHAT IS DIFFERENCE (PIN JAMS, PIN IN TABLE)?

                Most likely lengthening the trip rod will solve your problem. Wouldn't be a bad idea to check the eccentric roller adj. while you there as well.
                Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!

                    check several things.
                    1.are rods parallel
                    2.are rollers too tight.
                    3.is sleeve and pinion gear free on shaft.
                    4.is trip stop blade and clutch lining up ok.
                    5.is distributor shaft bent causing rocking effect.
                    6.is there a washer between worm and sleeve pinion.
                    7.is worm worn.
                    most likely is that the rods are not parallel and if you look at the stop blade and the rear of the clutch you will see that they do not line up.one will be a lot higher than the other.
                    hope this will help you.
                    there are other possibilities but these are the most common.
                    good luck. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img] [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]

                      Re: dist. skipping 6 pin

                      Quick fix &amp; test:

                      1) Clean carriage tube &amp; rollers.
                      2) Put the dist in the #5 position.
                      3) Push carriage as far back as it will go.
                      4) While watching the stop blades, release the carriage.
                      5) If dist indexes when carriage extends, lengthen cable (rod, for you old schoolers) 1 turn at a time until it doesn’t index on its own.
                      6) Repeat steps 3-5 at the #6 position.

                      When you have more time check the other items mentioned.

                            no, 2,4, and 6 are working at my mercy now. no problems there at all. it is lane 10 doing this. lanes have been running great though...here lately if we have 1 call a night it was a rough night. even on full or double shift nights.
