    Re: Hello! Need Help Again!

    Is the ball rolling in the middle of the bounce plate ?? Or is it rolling back against the kick-back. If it's back by the kick-back. Is it right on a rubber rivet?? When you had the bounce plate out did you check to see if all the screws where in place & tight in the steel supports under the bounce plate boards ?? How far is the front roller away from the tail plank ?? Is both the brackets the bounce plate sit on. Tight against the side plate. Only 2 bolts hold them on & if one breaks the bounce plate will slip down. Also check the front legs.They might have worked there way down.

      Most of the time the ball rolls against the kick-back and gets stuck there. It's because of the rubber rivet's or a loose facing. Did you happen to change any of the angle brackets the bounce plate sits on ?? Those are left & right brackets. If you put one on & it's not the right one for the side you replaced. That could cause the problem.

        Assuming all parts are good:

        If light balls are the only problem then put in a new carpet, or swap it with an adjacent machine (so the seam is going in the right direction). Some carpets are notorious for curling up at the ball door and developing a crown for the ball to “surf” on about 18” from the ball door.

        If balls are riding in front of roller, you have to much gap and need to put a board along your tail plank.

        If balls are riding behind front roller, there is a kit you can install or just put a flap on your tail plank

        If balls are riding against cushion put in a urethane rivet not rubber, I prefer the AMF blue ones.

          These guys are both dead on. If all else fails, remember your jackscrews that hold the frapping pinsetter level. Ive had screwy ball return problems on account of bad kickback levels. Good luck.
          The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it which the merely improbable lacks.
