      Re: amf 4400

      had toggles through the pinwheel. the pinwheel was closed, no hole in the middle (have fun getting a cushion out). electro-mechanical chassis, which actually had sweep/table style cams in it, vertical ball lift. the next model 5850 had little nicer chassis, and i believe open pinwheel, then the 6525, then some beast called the '70

        Re: amf 4400

        58/50's had a closed wheel and a third carpet roller that directed the ball to the door. It had four SA levers and a dist. that used a drop pin and track stops to feed the cups.
        My favorite 82/30 was the 6525 with the chassis mounted over the BE motor. The respot cells and the K&L wiring were the only things that a newbie had trouble with. And sweep carriage. And ball lift replacement. And broken dist. tracks. And ball doors.

          If you can get access to an 82-30 manual there should be a picture of a 4400 in it.

I hope she made sure they pulled the plugs on the motors just to be on the safe side. I wonder if that woman is still living? I'll bet she has a good story to tell!

                        That reminds me...I recall seeing an OLD Jimmy Stewart movie on TV where one scene was in a bowling alley. I clearly remember seeing those old sweeps. Does anyone recall the name of the movie?
