  • Light ball sensors

    I have A.M.F. Light ball sensors with P.B.L. on 82-70s is there something better? Can I go back to the shock type rudder drive from the kicker ball lift if so what do I need to change?

    IMHO there's nothing wrong with your present setup!
    So it goes.

        Grab a manual and get it on.

          I'm with ya richard. Put on reduction pully's with your old paddle drive. You wont be able to use the old shock. As the reduction pully will slow down the paddle to much. But Any new spring type will work. All my LBS went into the dumpster.

            LBS are garbage put a reduction pulley on the kicker stytle rudder arm with a super rudder drive as long as ya have the rudder adjsuted to where it huvers to 1 side at a time for 3 secs to let light balls in and the stroke is even ya never have pins in ball door.all my rudders have this setup and rarely have pin in ball door!!

              Richard4wd, I'm with King on this one.

              I've worked on everything, LBS are the Rolls Royce of returns. Once you have them adjusted right, there's almost nothing to do to them but pour solvent over them once a month.Now I'm talking 2 ball stops a month, no exagerating.

              What's your problem with them? If you have an older version, you may be experiencing problems of them flogging out in the keyway, holding the LBS assy to the paddle assy. This can cause them to bind up the drop cams against the paddle frame. This can be sorted with a support bracket. If you are experiencing pins in the paddle, than it's simply not working and needs to be fixed, pull it out and find the problem, it may be out of adjustment, worn large cam ( rounded on edges ), If it's pushing out light balls, again it's not working as it's called a light ball sensor for a reason, so find out why?

              As for adjustments I always found, that I had them working best, if they stalled slightly when they get to the kickback, I used up the whole 1/8 clearence in the upper cam, this gave time for any pins to be removed by the carpets and not follow the paddle back into the hole.

              Good luck.
              Frank.
              always doing my best.

                Lbs's Are only garbage if you don't keep up on them. I love mine. pull them all out every summer and do the proper cleaning and replace worn parts and they won't run any better. Remember not to over lube them they work on friction.
