  • Double indexing after 5 pin drop

    Lane 15 started double indexing after the 5 pin drop. And the trip lever does like a half twitch right before the double index. Any ideas

    i would check your turret clutch and the rotation of the time delay gear. I would also keep an eye on the indexing latch to see if it is fully closing and short link

      Change the short turret drive belt, most common cause.

        The indexing bellcrank roller might be riding too high on the time delay gear...it is supposed to be just low enough so that it only contacts the ramp on the time delay gear. It it rides too high the second dip you may be seeing could be from the roller on the bellcrank rolling over the holes on the time delay gear....might have to adjust your trip lever down a touch....then if your idexing becomes too sensitive because of this (muti-indexing problems on the rest of the pin positions)you might have to lengthen your short link slightly (if you don't have the adjustable type, you would acheive this by reshaping it).

        Try the short turret belt first because it is an easier fix. If the short turret belt is streached too much it could be causing the problems. An indicator would be if the post for the torsion latch is underneath the shaft on the turret frame for the trip lever if you are looking from above.

            Could be a number of things....please descibe what you are seeing happening....deos the lever strike the torsion latch? does the gear then turn or not? Do you see a dip in the trip lever if the gear does turn? Does the turret start to index but hesitate?
