  • Bad chassis...

    Got a machine that won't feel for pins after 1st ball. Wants to set full rack on standing pins. If 1st ball was a strike, it will set a new rack then sweep it off and set another one. Swapped chassis' and that is the problem, but I don't know where to attack the issue in the chassis. Is it contacts? Relays? Machines are 82-70s with one board chassis. Any tips will be appreciated.

    pot relay is bad. If changing relays doesnt help check the C1 plug at terminals35 and 36.
    Good luck. Paul

        Ditto that, sounds like the spotting relay to me also
        All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

            Strange sweep problem
