  • Grey Sure Pik Belts

    I have bought some of these form various distributors.

    They do not allow undergrounds, however the durability of them is not good.

    I just ordered orange genuine style belts from JCP.

    I will post on the durability of them after installation.

    Re: Grey Sure Pik Belts

    Are surepiks still running around? I had a housefull up until a few years ago. The ones that didnt have problems NEVER had problems. The ones that did ALWAYS had problems. Of course, now i have the C90 ball lift. Much better design for a ball lift. Not as rugged and durable as a surepik, at least on an individual parts basis.
    The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it which the merely improbable lacks.

        Re: Grey Sure Pik Belts

        I had no real complaints with the Surepiks, cept when the springs got tired, and changing out the fusestats. The only time mine ever let me down was in trying to return two 16 pounders at the same time. Sometimes they could, most times it was 50/50. I dont miss that big-ass hood , thats for sure [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

          <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">The Sur-pik is a good system if its maintained well. Worked at a place that had the old AMF wooden ramp upsweep with a wheel ball returns (not sure the name), talk about underground city! The best thing the owner did was buy another center's sur-piks who were upgrading to C-90's. Those used sur-piks ran pretty much flawlessly.

            We still have 32 of those beautiful Sure-Piks. For us they run great, rarely a problem with them. I love em ALMOST as much as King does [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]

              i havent worked with sure-piks in 3 years. but luved them. spent many a nights passed out on one. my fav belt became the new (at the time) AMF black one, it seemed to grip and rip anything out of the underlane.

                Too Many 10 pins, I think you are refering to the "Lazy Susan" ball returns, I remember starting in a center once that had them and there was no ball under 11lb's on the racks, I wonder why?
                willey.
                always doing my best.

                    DO not order the JCP orange belt.

                    I have 1 the V separated off the main body of the belt at 6 months.....and another that is not far behind.

                    Who has the best belt?

                    Does Stahl's make one?

                      Yes Stahls makes one but it is grey also. Tryed them like 8 or 9 years ago and seemed to work ok. the are the same belt that they sell for there back end ball lift and same rubber. Give them a try not sure if they are still selling them.
                      They say that the **** rolls down hill but the smell always starts at the top.

                        Jerry, give AMF a call.
                        If I am not mistaken, I think they MAY be using the canvas backed black belt now, with the solid v-guide. They changed their ball lift belt from the ribbed v to this style, so it is possible they changed the sure-pik belt as well. Worth a shot.

                              I Lied; AMF, OEM is alot like the bait and switch scam. "1979" green belts(some hard and some soft), then orange and now blk(with cogs on a non cogged pulley)?
