  • 82/90 XL pits

    Have any of you 82/90xl techs ever pulled a pit through the back by opening the pin elevator? I'm getting ready to pull all my pits and would like to take them out the back if it can be done. I've never tried it this way yet but if I don't get any answers here I'm goin to give it a shot on my first one...It doesn't take much time to open the elevator up, but if it won't work I don't want to waste my time doing it. So, with that being said...Have any of you ever tried it?

    We have that option here and Tall Paul has chosen to take them out the front. It is not a ton of extra work but any extra work is too much for him and I both.

      If that little extra work will save me from walking around like a little old man (bad back) for three or four days after pulling a pit, I'll be all for the little extra work...On the other hand if it's not going to make getting the bounce plates and carpet easier out I'm not going to waste my time.

      Tim, if we don't see that anybody on here has tried it...I'll be the guinnea pig and try it and let you know if the little extra is worth it or not.

        On 70’s I remove the cushion. A little more work, but makes it a lot easier getting in and out for forgotten tools, shagging calls and reassembling the pit.

        Kenny,

        Pic’s would be cool of that thing open if at all possible.

          I always pull the cushion as well.

          Brian,
          I will take some pics with it open if I go that route...Hell, I just might go ahead and open one up and take some pics for you anways...Only takes about 5-10 min to open one up.

              AMF explained that the pivot for the elevator wheel was going to be used as a quick pit change method for the 8800 machine. Somehow the pit assy.(inc. rollers) would slide in for a quick change.

                Found with the cushion out…..makes it much easier to remove the bounce board, carpet and both rollers (all at the same time)…a lot easier. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

                  Triac...

                  Before removing the bounce plate and rollers simultaneously, try setting a gearbox on each end of it, like I do. It will greatly aid in balancing the pit for easy removal. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

                          Ok. The pit is out and it was well worth opening the elevator up...I still pulled the rear roller through the hole but left the front roller in on top of the bounce plates...Got bounce plates off support weldments, walked the bounce plates to a slight angle and slid them bad boys right out the back...Much, much easier than laying on the pin deck trying to pull them up onto the deck.

                            Kenny... maybe if you'd stop posting every half hour, you could have that thing back in by the weekend. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

                            Good to hear that you enjoy taking it out of the rear.

                            Still waiting on Jen's pics....
