  • Actuator Arm for Yoke assemlby

    Hey guys

    I got 1 question. I know its possible to put the arm on backwards/upside down. If the arm is put on wrong, which way will it affect the cups? Will they be too low in the horinzontal position or will they be too high?

    Thanks for any help

          There should be a triangle on one side of the arm. The triangle goes on the inside. We did have one that was mis-triangled once....Viva AMF!

                  How about <span style="color: #FF0000">32</span> Factory 82-70 referbs with the XLI conversion !!

                  Oh they will spot ---- when every other adjustment is made to compensate....

                  Somebody tell me they are supposed to have the Triangles on the outside with the AMF converted 70-XLIs....

                    ok....after an exact count....only <span style="text-decoration: underline">20</span> of our lanes are wrong....have the Actuator Arm on backwards....

                    The first four are wrong and I assumed all 32 were....



                    But hey.... <span style="text-decoration: underline">12</span> of them are correct !!

                      Oh and strangely....one of the Actuators has no markings at all on it....no number or triangle....

                        There has never been a set way of this item to be
                        machined. For years it has always been one way or
                        other as the item has no side differences. If this
                        item is removed from the shaft, simply look at
                        the direction of the mounting bolt before removing
                        and replace the arm as before. If you are unsure
                        of the correct way to install, simple remove the
                        cam follower from inside the arm. The arm should
                        be pointing in a straight down direction with the
                        cups laying level. The table will not set pins if
                        the arm is installed in the wrong direction.
                        Prevent the problems. Don't do crash repairs.

                          I believe the part is cast iron....

                          Thanks though....the lane I am working on was big-time out of adjustment....

                          the table flagged perfectly ---- but to get the pins to spot on the spots, they had the top nuts of the spotting cups all the way tight and the bottom ones barely on....

                          Sounds like I can relax somewhat now....

                            Thanks a bunch !! Now I understand....

                            looks like the machinists over the years quit careing which side they punched the key way....

                            The yoke on the lane I am working on was so far out of adjustment had me wondering if something else was wrong....

                              had one that no matter which way round was just plain wrong, and when you put it next to another one the hole for the keyway just doesnt line up at all!!
