    Re: exit paddle

    If you have kickers, check all the paddle drive belts, make sure they're all in good shape and not slipping. Also check the shock, make sure it's not loose and flimsy.
    All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

      Also check paddle and make sure it is not on rudder shaft too far and binding on rear filler pad.

        Bad shock, Paddle to far forward or to far back, And also check the drive pulley. Where the shock mounts to the pulley. There is a adjustment for travel length. If the bolts are loose,then the paddle will not travel correctly.

          Thought of one more thing. If you have PBL's check behind your rudder drive pulley. Behind that pulley is a bolt which tightens the plow. If the bolt is loose it can bind pulley.

            <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Ill second that notion. perhaps the rear filler plate screw(s) have loosened allowing paddle to touch and wedge against it. could be the paddle is not moving back and forth straight. need to slide rear brackets of paddle, or shim with washers to get the propper "up down left right" for it

              It'd help if we knew what type paddle drive. You running kickers ?? PBL's ?? Humpbacks ??

                  Does the paddle go completly from side to side freely pryor to the pin problem ? Are the pins getting stuck between filler plates ? ( where the paddle arm go's thru) Or up by the starter pad ??
                  Have you tryed changing the shock ??

                  Disconnect the shock and see if it swings both ways freely. Make sure it's not hitting the filler plate's or the starter pad. Paddle should be centered inside of the exit.
                  Adjust the drive pully so you have maximum travel.
                  Check the shock to see if it is good.

                    also make sure the bumpers in the rear filler that the kicker bodies rest on are both there-if one or both are missing the kicker will sit too far forward and the paddle will get caught underneath it. loose filler plate screws will also cause this to happen.

                      we had this on 1 pair of lanes. we found the shock was past its life and with no spares we used a spring to pull it to the side it would travel to. maybe worth a shot for temp use.
