  • Elco Plug Question

    Hey guys, I got to use one of my rebuilt chassis tonight, the one on the machine had a contact going to crap so I threw a spare on for the night to get it thru. Ran great, not one call. But one small problem arose, no 2nd ball light. I wiggled the elco and it came on. Which pin in the elco is for the 2nd ball light so I can check/replace the pin. I know one of you guys will know. Thanks in advance [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]
    All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

    Hey Rep

    Glad to see you are getting new stuff fixed!

    If elco corresponds to the same pins as the C23, you need to check pin 25 for 2nd ball.

      Don't remember the number, but top row, and I think 3rd from the front (foul line side). If you are careful, you can use a small screwdrive to carefully close the two brass contacts together to make a better connection.

        PM-E25 is second ball. Comes from PC4-7.

          <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Yup, I got all 6 chassis we had laying around all working again, so we have 3 spares on each side, they were just sitting there collecting dust for so many years so I figured why not take some time while it's quieter and get em usable again. Mainly for something like what happened last night. Thanks for the info guys, I'll check that pin today at work. Rock on BT [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

            1st ball - PM-E24
            2nd ball - PM-E25
            Strike - PM-E26
            Foul - PM-E27
            Common for all of these is PM-E29

              man if you guys saw the way i handled "spares parts" and being prepared for disasters, you would faint. Im what you might call "un-pre-pared." Makes the job a lot more fun when you dont get to just fix it in a flash all the time. Let them see you sweat. Make them love you. Nothing i like better than running up front with tools in the middle of league, fixing stuff for a crowd, sweaty and swearing, and BOOM! yeah its fixed. Whos the man? Thats right. Now get back to bowling , folks. Move along.

                  THE ONLY THING YOU ARE GOING TO DO "70-PINMONKEY" IS PISS YOUR CUSTOMERS OFF AND POSSIBLY COST YOUR CENTER LEAGUES WHICH IN RETURN MIGHT COST YOU YOUR JOB. I TOOK A CENTER OVER TWO YEARS AGO FROM A MECHANIC JUST LIKE YOU. THE CENTER WAS ABOUT TO LOSE 50% OF ITS LEAGUES, BECAUSE THE COMPANY PUT UP WITH HIM FOR ABOUT 5 YEARS. HE WAS ONE OF THOSE I KNOW IT ALL, BUT DO NOTHING UNTIL I HAVE TO MECHANICS. LET ME TELL YOU ANOTHER THING, HE NEW NOTHING. HIS WORK ETHIC SUCKED TOO. I AM NOT SAYING THIS IS HOW YOU ARE. JUST WATCH THE WAY YOU RUN YOUR CENTER. PEOPLE WILL ONLY TOLERATE SO MUCH.

                    People will tolerate exactly what i tell them too, buckaroo. Ware your high and mighty condescending, its unwarranted and makes you sound a bit foolish. Im sure you're the man and all, but I have a Dad to scold me about how to act. I'll say this, no league has ever had to go home on account of my not being able to fix something.

                      70monkey...Who are you and why are you here ???

                      Are you for real or are you just a joke ?

                      You type a lot of words but you say absolutely nothing worthwhile !

                      The only one that sounds foolish is you.

                      How old are you ??....19 ?

                      I'm a little upset with myself because you made me post this reply. Thought I never would.

                        Whats with all the nobility and propriety from you guys? We're all brothers in grease. I think im coming across different than what youre used to because im not using this time to sound like im the greatest mechanic in the world. Im not trying to sound fatherly and omnipotent. Im just a monkey, like you all, who turns wrenches for a living. Calm down, remember the beauties of free speech. In the words of Richard Pryor, "have a coke and a smile and shut the f up."

                          Personally, I prefer to fix stuff before it breaks. The nights the bowlers didn't see or hear from me, they were happy.

                          BTW, that comes from a guy who was not only the tech, but the owner. As "just a bowler", nothing in the world pissed me off more than machinery that didn't run. And having that perspective BEFORE I got into the business was a primary reason why I succeeded.

                          You can choose to be a fireman, dumping buckets on little fires as they emerge. I'd much rather go buy a hose and be sure the damn fire doesn't get started in the first place

                              <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">First...I don't put myself in the category of being a "monkey". If you wish to be one...more power to you.

                              Second...a good mechanic doesn't turn wrenches for a living. He inspects, lubricates and adjusts. You may need to turn a few wrenches to get to that point, but eventually the wrenches get a well needed rest.
