  • Jack shaft battle

    Just completed my first and hopefully last. 10 minutes to go in lg. and snap she went. The bright side she could have went sooner. Notice it had a cracked bearing also. Wish I would have changed pin wheel clutch when I had her apart. Noticed it was not running true all the way around to the face plate. Sometime in the past, someone skipped the bushing by the cross conv. drive sheave. That caused a few step's back and tossed my hat! Went to the book, (thanks Mr. Bayne), got her going. Have to mess with pin wheel clutch Tue. Thanks for letting me vent.

            Good job with the replacement (really), but it must have been fun to back back on those hundreds of belts!

            I guess I'm lost on here too!

              Had a chance to work on 8230's years ago. Have to say, I liked them. Never got a chance to try the 8270's though. AMF had some great ideas. A-2's can be a real battle. Getting too old for this.

                      I read the title of this thread and thought someone decided to post about my trials and tribulations over the last two months. Between the two houses I work at I've had to pull 3 jack shafts and 3 completely destroyed bearings in the last 6 weeks. One of them has almost no calls on nights I don't work, and when I am working anything and everything that can go wrong with a full house of leagues does. I believe there is a ghost there (for many reasons, but that's for a different thread). It hates me, and knows enough about pinsetters to know what is a true PITA to limp through a league shift with.

                      I will say this though: I will never again curse at a pin wheel, cross conveyor, or turret again. I've had to do their job, and it's not easy. You don't know what you've got til it's gone, as they say.

                        It sometimes seems to me that these things run in a pattern. Just like your jack shaft's coming in bunches. It is bad when it happens with a full house, but we sure want the house full. Good luck and hang in there.

                          I, too, have noticed the same things. If I had a turn pan jam on one lane, it happened on two or three others, and during the same night. Ball calls were another issue. If one had an issue, two or more pinsetters had similar issues. And on other nights, it seemed like all hell broke loose. On those nights, I was not a happy camper.

                            Tonight had a major dose of humidity in the building. Had pan jams all over the place. Some of the pins just went right over the pans onto the floor. Was surprised did not have pins sticking in chutes. I picked up more pins tonight, than I knocked over in lg. Wed. Well it seemed like it.

                              Centers with humidity can run a farm size fan at one end behind machines or one at each end depending of size of house and it helps incredibly.... I run a fan like that in summer behind mine
