  • Which way does it turn

    Get this everyone I noticed something the other day when I was doing some motor repair. There is a AMF sticker on one side of the start capacitor of the B/E motor (Nationals). When on the machine it faces the bowlers indicating which way it turns. I found this out after I put a few motors back to gether to test them out which way they turn. But bad luck if you daon't have any stickers on them. I've get 24 motors and they all check out the way I descibed.
    There is always more to life, but would someone tell me what it is!

    I checked mine today and you are absolutely correct. There is no need to mark them since AMF did it for us 30 years ago.

      I'm glad someone was thinking 30 years ago. LOL

        Yuppers, our national BE's are the same. AMF sticker faces out towards the bowler
        All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/
