    Re: hanging 180s

    hey jordan,
    your 180 link could be adjusted a little too low and the vibration of the next set of pins dropping into the deck is enough to jog it loose and release the machine from 180.
    hope this helps,

      Re: hanging 180s

      jordan...the one thing you need to concentrate on is to prevent the "hanging" 180's. As the 180 degree interlock link rises, it is raising the clutch release lever to re-engage the roller into the actuator links. This causes the triggering linkage to get back in "sync" with itself. The rest of the cycle then resumes as normal. The cycle usually begins due to the clutch latch not falling under the roller on the clutch reset lever between 270 and 360 degrees. This can be due to someone pressing the reset button before the rake is up. This can be solved by rewiring the machine to remove the reset button from the circuit while the rake is down. There was a thread done a few months back that talked about this problem. I have moved wire 61 from the Y2 connector (wire nut in electrical box) and move it to wire 56 which is the common of TSC-1 or the #18 spot on the time delay module. This will remove the reset button from the circuit while the rake is down. This works on A-2's with normal wiring in the electrical box. If you're not sure, e-mail me and I will help you through it.

      Just my two cents worth...

        hey jordan,

        I work on some nice old Brunswick A-2 pin setters. Most issues I've come across haven't been to problematic to figure out. But being I can't seem to get it to recreate the issue...
