  • moving sweep over

    I have a sweep that is rubbing on the ends of the pins and are going down to the e clips.
    Also it is hiting on the 7 pin respot linkage. Anyone know how to move this over?

    Re: moving sweep over

    you can shim up the outside of the main sweep shaft under the catwalk. I usualy use pacman washers to do this. You can do it by removing the cat walk or you can do it from under the machine the first is easier than the second. Just make sure that you run the sweep to the 4 5 6 row to take the pressure of the sweep and pivot. this should want to rais the outside of the 7 pin side.
    They say that the **** rolls down hill but the smell always starts at the top.

      that is what I did seems to work fine now,
      was going thru way too many respot studs.

        We have a few we did this way also. pacman washers work excellent for this, we use these as well
        All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

              I call 'em "C" washers never thought of calling them packman.
              There is always more to life, but would someone tell me what it is!

                  This problem can also be caused by a machine that is not properly alighned on the kickbacks.

                  If the machine is too far over to the 10 pin side, the table was more than likley flagged or repositioned towards the 7 pin side to get pins on spot.

                  This can cause the sweep to contact the table 7 cell wireway.

                  A quick check for sde to side positioning, draw a pencil line from front to back on the pindeck through the center of the 1 and 5 pin spots, put the table at BDC spotting without pins, hang a plumb bob from the center 5 pin butt plate in the bin and see how the bob lines up with your pencil line.

                  This will give you a indication of side to side alignment of the machine, if its off you can loosen the 4 machine mounting bolts / nuts and move the machine to get it centered.

                  The table may need to be flagged and reset as well.

                  If it is aligned properly the pacman washer method will more than likely do the trick.
                  Please.....follow the instructions!!

                    Good tip there John on the plumb bob. I see that coming in handy.
