  • Something New

    All year round I do different projects to my machines. We are not a super busy center, so I can do a lot more than other mechanics.

    Anyways, tonight I did a "NEW" project. I decited to pull off all my upper ball lift yoke assemblies.(only two at a time) I cleaned yoke and pulley, and lubed inside of yoke and ball lift tube(where yoke mounts). Most of them came off pretty easy but I had a couple that were stuck.

    Yes, I could of shot grease inside of zert fitting on yoke but I thought I could clean shaft and spring also. I did all 12 in about 3 1/2 hours. I didnt take long and now I have piece of mind that the yokes are well protected with red sticky grease.

    Just thought I would share.

    Clutch,Anytime I work on a ball lift I always do exactly what you did.Its way better to apply the grease by hand than to depend on that fitting.Good Job!

        Rake sweeping out of time, and pin launching onto lane.

        I work on some nice old Brunswick A-2 pin setters. Most issues I've come across haven't been to problematic to figure out. But being I can't seem to get it to recreate the issue...
