  • orienting question

    Ok, we all have a trouble dizzy or two. I have a dizzy that no matter WHAT I do, it's just, well... not too good looking. I have moved "O" pan everywhere, moved "kidney" everywhere, added washers and took out washers to try to change dizzy angle. Installed one of them orienting kits from stalls. To no avail. I think it just hates me. And no offense to stalls, I nave a few in service that work absolutly great for me. I have looked at the ring tube for warping, thinking that it can cause an incostant feed off the wheel, but looks ok to me. Any ideas???

      Re: orienting question

      Have you tried slowing the wheel down? Do you have at least one washer under the dist ? In some house's I've found either no washers or sometimes three of them. Compare it to other dist's and try to find something different. Would this dist. be a RH mach? Drive shaft balls flat or universal joint?

        amfpinboy... reduced to 5 inch pully, replaced washers from none to five, even lane (my #14) shortened drive shaft, and the housing weldment and "u" joint are new. still orients like s**t.

          Change your dist pan.I have also created better orientation by roughing up the pan where the pin hits first whith emery cloth.

            1. Check the pinwheel cleats for tightness.

            2. Install a piece of ball kicker strip in the center of the o pan. This will kick the pin straight for perfect orienting. I run the strip from parallel to the dist. belt about 3 inches in the center of the pan.

                Or you can use a piece of dist. belt and contact cement to affix it to the o-pan.

                  Am I to assume that tape is designed to attatch to the kicker wheels ?

                  I got the tan wheels from Ed Fox...they cured 97% of my ball calls.

                      This is what I call a no logic problem, as in "there's no logic to it, everything is ok. Is should be working"

                      Anyway on our last "no logic" distributor someone had fitted the left hand (if you were looking from the front) support guide 070 006 103 in the wrong place. Just to be clear this was a odd numbered machine, and as you stand behind the machine. It was the rail on the 10 pin side of the machine.

                      What they had done (me) was when replacing the rail, instead of putting it between the casting and pan, they put in on the opposite side of the casting. So at the pan end of the rail, the rail was 1cm away from where is should have been.

                      It seemed to cause more probles at the 4,7 and 8 positions than any others.

                      It's a longshot, but it may help.

                          This is kind of a simple fix but sometimes overlooked..

                          Is your pinwheel clean?
