      Re: carpets stalling

      Let me guess, AMF Pumpkin? Carpets stalling can be a few things but I would first look at the tracking. You want to see at least a tiny bit of space each turn of the front roller between the carpet and the rim of the front roller at least for a split second. If you have the carpet firmly against and can't see a little gap at all, your tracking too hard and that can cause stalls and quick wear. Other thing is front roller tension and that being that the roller hinges are not stiff and that the springs aren't weak. My other thought which I hope it isn't, is the carpet stiffening up from oil drying it out. If thats the case, thats gonna suck. I think I got all the culprits, did I miss any?

        Front roller hitting against the kick-back. Carpet comming unraveled and winding around the roller & bearings. Pin laying in between the carpet. Bounce plate broken or a piece laying against the carpet.Drive pulley not tight on rear shaft.

        Roller tension & bearings already covered.

        Thats all I can think of off the top of my head indexer2

          Another vote for the AMF pumpkin. Theyre mean until they soften which is hardly ever.

          I will give credit though. They are some TOUGH mothers..

              Thats what I thought. Yes, I have had stall problems with many of the Vantage carpets. I now exclusivly use either the EBN carpet, or Stahls ugly white. The EBN seem to break in a bit faster, the Stahls claim over 14 years of service life.

                Vantage Premium I would guess?

                If so, I cant complain about those.

                Only had 1 out of several that gave a problem.

                    We thought we'd beat the stalling issue a few years ago by installing fresh springs on our fr.roller hinges.Got about eight lanes in and problem was getting worse!Well,stopped everything,scratched our heads for a bit,then decided to measure some of the new springs in from Vantage against old originals.Newbies were about 3/16" LONGER than oldies!!!Perhaps if they woulda missed 3/16" shorter(wink,wink-hint,hint)
                    that may've been more gooder me thinks...

                      just buy a good carpet, and you dont have to deal with it. EBN is very reasonably priced, and seem a good carpet... CALL ED!!!!!!!!

                          Amf Platinum carpets. Pricey, but damn good so far. Have like six of them. Been in for...ahwile. Have no concept of linear or exponential time. Six months? A year? Hard to say. They rock though. Right out of the damn box they rock.

                          Spray or liquid adhesives help, so will scuffing up your roller.

                          I have cut links off of support springs to help this, but its a b*tch to get the shortened springs back on sometimes.
                          The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it which the merely improbable lacks.

                            As a temporary fix-it, pull the edge of the carpet back and dump some of Mr. fox's pin deck treatment inside. It will get you through a few days without stalling.
