    After you move the table forward readjust the respot rod and pawl.

      King is right. Follow the instructions in the manual under 'table adjustments' & 'to fix wobbling pins'.

      When Reno Hilton (50 lanes) got their synthetics installed, most of the machines didn't have enough room for adjustments. We had to 'reinstall' most of the machines. In other words, we had to move the entire front ½ of the machines to get them to spot pins correctly.

      It wasn’t quick or easy but it did make for some good stories.

                We put our pro anvil in during leagues towards the end of season. Dont ask me , I had no input as to when they were installed. In some instances I had an hour and a half to get four machines to spot correctly. I leveled and flagged the tables then went through the spot and respot adjustments and all went well. Maybe I was lucky.

                  This may sound odd, but check the length of the respot rod with a new one or one from another machine. I had many machines here that I could not get proper clearance for the pawl. One day I changed a rod on one of the problem machines and had plenty of clearance. When I compared the rods, the one that I took off was about 3/4" longer than the new one I put on. I cut and rethreaded the rest of the problem lanes with no more problems.

                    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">This is not a bad idea, even if the tie rod is the correct length shotening it would be a lot easier than moving your machine, especially if pawl clearance is your only issue.

                    Good idea pete!

                        <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">1) Loosen all the hardware that bonds the machine your moving to the next machine &amp; the rear 1/2. (Downsweep, plate next to odd chassis, tank bolt, etc)

                        2) Loosen elevating screws on top of kickbacks.

                        3) Use a pry bar to move the machine forward, back or away from adjacent machine. Use a pipe clamp to move it toward the adjacent machine.

                        Don't try this alone. If you do, you'll spend 1/2 your time climbing back &amp; forth from front to back. You may also need someone to hold the frame in place while you tighten it down.

                        Don't overlook the possibility of the catwalk being in the way. It's possible that it might have to be trimmed. I didn't have this problem but I came close.
