  • Slowing down pin wheel

    I have slowed down everything on my A2's, has anyone found a pulley size that works great on the 70's?

    I use the ones that AMF put on. Seems to work ok for me.

      I use the 5 inchers drom Stahls. They are about $10 a piece (for pin wheel) you may need to replace the 190 inch belt with a 188, stahls also has them. AMF has an adjustable one, but it is like $55. I also use the 5 inch ball lift pullies (biger) to slow down my lift. I tend to get them from vantage. The EBN reduction sheave is great to slow down your paddle, if you dont have LBS.

        I have the LBS but the guys want to try the 5" pulley so I thought I would check on here and then order 12 of them and see if they help things out a little. Did you have to change the belt on the XLI's or are they all 190"?


        thanks Paul

          Drill you will have to readjust all of the kidnys to make the pins roll out a little later to get the turn needed for good orientation. Good luck you will like them.

            On 90's, the Boxes are geared down to slow down the elevator. We actualy had to put the big pulleys and belta back on that pair.

              I have a mix of 5 and 6 inchers. I try to only use the 5's where no matter what I try, I just can't get good orienting. Kidney adjustment is crutial, or head first pins will prevail.
              Don't mind me, what you read is invisible.

                  I have always ran OEM pulleys with no problem.

                    All adjustable pulleys here. I've slowed down my pinwheels the maximum and have installed the B-188 belts. Orientation problems are non-existent. I've seen guys get the 5 inchers from Grainger with good success. Yes, you will have to dik around with the kidney adjustment, but once you've got it dialed in, you leave it alone.
