  • Distributor Mods.

    Hey Everyone. Alright I know everyone has his or her own mod that they believe in when it comes to distributors. I want to know if anyone out there is running succesfully without any mods, and if so, what are the key adjustments pertaining to correct pin orientation.
    thanks ~jake

    MIKE (Clutch Plate)!!!! Here's somebody after your heart. Clutch Plate isn't really into mods and he does have some good running distributors... Myself, I like to try out mods that I see on here.

      Is that even phsicaly posiable? This is just my opinion but anything that is not AMF gnuine parts could be considered a mod of some type.
      There is always more to life, but would someone tell me what it is!

        Most of my distributors are factory. No mods at all in most of them. I rebuild 4 or 5 every summer. 18 lane house means they get rebuilt every 4 years.

          Actually most of the centers I deal with have little or no mods, some experimenters, but by and large most are box stock.

          Keep them clean, keep them adjusted, watch out for bent carraige tubes, don't overlube the pinion...........so on and so on.
          Please.....follow the instructions!!

            Re: Distributor Mods.

            I have 32 lanes currently, no mods, I average one dist. jam every two days.

            The reason mostly, Excellant Pin rail and O-Pan marriages. If the marriage isn't true, the distributors are pressured to perform at their peak. Excellant distribution will make poor distributors perform well.

            Also, I do not have untrained hands messing with adjustments in the back.
            Pinspotters do not break down when they are not running!

              <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">That's the word I should've used "experiment". I like to "experiment" with mods that I see on here. The only thing I've done to my distributor's that isn't original is remove the belt runner....Other than that all of mine are original.

                  So as far as mods go, are we all in agreement that King's mod (belt runner removal) is the best?

                      Removing the runner is the best mod we have ever done.

                        Yes I agree with the runner removal mod, I have always believed that the 70 Distributor did not fit properly so they compromised, because the angles would'nt allow it, they needed a deeper pan like the 30, which did not have orientator problems if it was maintained properly.

                        Frank.

                          I like to position the pin guide quite low to the pan. Someone else also talked about this in another topic, and I totally agree with what he said. I also keeping the guide quite far back.
                          At the end of the day this adjustment is different for each machine, its just what SHE likes. Dont use any mods at the moment, but if I was to I would be tempted to go with the adding of the rod onto the top of the kidney / pin guide rail. Dont feel that I have enough stops of this problem to warrent doing this.

                            We didn't do any mods to ours and pileups aren't too bad. Humid days make them act up but other than that they run pretty well. I just try to keep up on the clutches and tweak the kidneys every now and again if they get out of adjustment
                            All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/
