  • First ball cycle

    On the first ball cycle I have a table that is coming down and the spotting cups are hitting the top of the standing pins pretty hard. I've checked all my table height adjustments and they all look good. What am I over looking?

    Working for the Military I've got a tight budget and can't afford to be replacing spotting cups all the time. Could somebody PLEASE help me out!!

    Re: First ball cycle

    Is the machine spotting the pins well on 2nd ball? Are they on spot? To stop the cups from hitting the pins on respot you'll have to adjust your cup tilt (dunno the numbers but it's in the front of the table on the left side looking from the front; near the big spring) there should be a 9/16 locknut there and a square headed bolt, loosen the locknut and unscrew the bolt to tilt them back more. Just be careful doing so, check all your spotting after, if you move it enough the pins will move offspot a little and you may have to go through all your spotting adjustments again if it starts dropping pins or making them wobble, if it's not too too bad all you may have to do is just adjust that cup tilt. Good luck!

          <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Like I was saying you can definately get the cups to stop hitting by adjusting the cup tilt just make sure it's still spotting properly on 2nd ball after doing this, as the cup tilt bolt is what starts the table yoke moving away when it spots pins, keep up posted [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

            Rep...You are the man.

            That solved my problem. I had to re-adjust the toe and that was it after I made the adjustment...all is working GREAT now.

            One day as being a member of Bowl Tech and already got some great advice.

            Just think! You just saved you and all of us tax payers some money...lol

            Thanx

                If this problem persists.Do the following instead of making the distance from the rear of the table to the rear of the 7 - 10 spots at 8" move the table back to 8 1/4" or 8 1/2" .This has the effect of moving all the cups back behind the spots and you reset the yoke and this brings the cups up at zero in a more parallel position. This means that when it comes down to respot it does not hit the head of the pin and also helps in a double shuttle problem as well. Keeping the cups flatter under the bin.Try this sometime and you will be amazed, this i know is fact.When i go into older centres or military ones to bring machines up to a better standard , you see the cups hitting the heads of the pins and noone bothers until they start knocking the pins over or moving them from the original position.
                Good luck , post a reply to me if this is not clear. Or send an email to my bowltech address.
