  • pin damage

    I had a pin get caught under the lower pulley of the ball lift. It was a pain to get out becuase I had to hold the lift up and get the pin out. When I got down there, it was making a grinding sound obviously becuase it was stuck. The pin got burned pretty bad.......take a look

    Replace the end cap on the lift rod and it wont get stuck rookie.

      i still enjoy seeing pins make it all the way to the c-90 underground... Makes me very happy. The phsyics of the journey blow my mind, but i giggle like a schoolgirl just the same when it happens.

        we have mendes c90 clones for ball returns and the underlane track runs in a tall channel, so pins in the ball return are common

          Is this a common Brunwick problem ?? I honestly have not seen this. I have pins get caught in ball return. But never had one get grinded on like that.

            ive had pins go all the way to my c90s up front, underground, and sit and get mauled by the pulleys.... Usually the c90 gets the worst end, and ive had to replace the pulleys on account of it. So now, we use holographic pins, and damage is no longer an issue , as the pins are not even really there.

              wow
              where do you buy them holograhpic pins ??? No more bitching on pin carry. Program the holograph to give strikes everytime the ball is in the pocket. I'm surprised King dont have them in his house.

                  it happens on Brunswick machines as well. About a month ago I had to pull the underground track cap off and dislodge a pin as well as 12 balls. Those stupid idiot just kept pulling balls off the rack and throwing them down, drunk college kids anyways. It was still funny to see it though.

                    Hey King, hook me up with some of them Holoflite II's. My game has been real crappy lately and I could use all the help I can get. LOL

                      Lumpy, i can relate. Ive had to pull upwards of thirty feet of capping to get to the line of balls stuck underground. Damn kids and their rap music boom de boom.
