  • Pawl?

    Once again, I appologize for my ignorance on this entire subject, but I'm working on it... I've read about this "pawl" a couple times now, but I have yet to see where or what it is. Any help will and always has been greatly appreciated.

    You spelt it wrong, but I am Paul....(LOL...JK)

    The Pawl is sometimes called the finger link. It is on the machine end of the respot rod, above it. It actuates the 'W' cam, sometimes known as the batwing. It is what causes the cells to open and close. It is about 4 inches long, smaller on one end than the other, and will have a spring on it when installed in the machine.

    Dont apologise. The only stupid question is the one that is not asked.

      Re: Pawl?

      The pawl is responsible for closing and opening the respot cells or 'fingers'. when the table descends to feel for pins, it pushes on the shifter link or (batman cam, slang) to close the fingers to pick up pins and when the table goes down again it will "flip" up to open the fingers. It is very clear in the manual. The book says 1/8 gap on the center point of the cam but with wear on the machines, I go with 1/16 gap. You can see it operate from the cat walk, then it all becomes clear just how it works.
      Yeah but, We've always done it that way.

        I hope this helps. If you look in the parts manual on page 9 (Table Assembly) item 45. The part is actually called a Finger Link. If you do not have an updated parts manual you can download one from the AMF web site. One way that I found to learn about what parts are and where they go is to just sit and look thru the manual. You will find that alot of names that people use for some of the parts are different. After a while the terminolagy will sink in. Good luck to you.

            Honestly I don't know where all these nicknames come from, it's strange how they are passed down from one mech.to another and from one center to another. Who knows in time maybe the parts book will start calling them what we call them.
