  • deck holding hook

    I have a holding hook that is catching. The machine is cycling through 1st ball. However when it is time to set new pins my holding hook is catching and will drop the pins from high and the hook stays in 2nd ball position after the cycle is complete. I did the out of range adjustment the I replaced the holding hook made the adjustment, but it is still catching.

    Make sure the OOR latch is not getting caught on the roll pin. Flip the latch up and run it to see if this is the problem. Another thing to look at is when your machine cycles does the rake sweep hook move? If it does shut the machine off at 0 deg. LOTO. Manually crank the gearbox forward till the rake sweep hook stops moving. Now make the deck holding hook adjustment. Let us know what you find.

        Are you saying the deck is held by holding hook and moving deck shifts and sets pins from that height?

        If so, you might have to also check your upper detector rod adjustment...

          Before making the holding hook adjustment, be sure to check the sweep hook adjustment. If this is too tight (high), it will keep the holding hook down more than desired and hard to adjust properly.

            Just to add a little more info, I bowl there on Tuesdays and It some times will drop pins from height with rake at 180 and throw pins up lane when rake sweeps forward.

              This can be a symptom of the bearing on the rake sweep hook cam follower (hook selector) in the early stages of failure... Do you have auto OOR kits installed?

                Sense the machine cant set anything at 180 ball 1 or 2 this sounds like another 2 adjustments are also off,"shotgun"not locking and the safety stop is not preventing the rake from falling behind the tailplank.
