  • Turret and clutch rebuild.

    I started here in Feb. I said 5 years ago I was done with Pinsetters. Now I got 50 lanes of this. But have 10 done so far. No mechanic for a 3 years there. I also have rebuilt 27 pits and 19 ball lift assemblies. I will post some more pics as I dig deeper into the abyss.

    looks good man. I rebuilt 10/12 of the one center I was at before I moved to another. Now I have 32 to help rebuild, hahah. I will look for the link to pictures I posted later. Plan on eating and relaxing for a bit. Nothing else, maybe somebody else will do it for me. | jsebeny <--YouTube | Cell: 309-275-2453

      Nice job Mike! Unfortunately the mechanic that was there three years ago is busy ruining another center in town. SMDH!

            I know the bowling center abyss feeling very well. Either they had a mechanic not doing things right or let one go due to cost's.
            You can do it,takes time but worth it and knowing YOU did the job well.

              it's super easy to pull the whole thing off the machine. i can do it in 30min by myself. makes working on the turret SO much easier. especially since you're able to "dry fit" parts to make sure they work (no binds, loose parts, etc) before putting it back and having to yank the part(s) out just to replace them. you should try it just once, you'd be shocked at how simple it is. i do recommend having a helping hand when installing the rebuilt one. i have mine 100% put together when installed. tried it once with just the frame and some linkage, then install everything else. too much of a pain! should you give it a shot... good luck my friend!
