  • Deck Hook Adjustment

    I have a deck hook that when you screw out both adjusting screws the hook stays in the high position and when I
    try to adjust the hook it will lower only when you turn the lower screw in first to where the edge is horizontal from
    the edge of the deck then you turn the upper screw in until it touches the pin which is ass backwards but it works.
    Anyone else ever had this problem?This may be the first FEMALE pinsetter I have ever encountered.

    The only time I ever had a problem adjusting a holding hook is when the machine was not all the way to 0 deg. Does the sweep hook move slightly when you first cycle the machine? Just a thought.

      Popeye is right about machine being at 0 when doing this adj't. You should then back the bottom adjusting screw out 'til it's not affecting the height of the hook. Then use the top screw to adjust the hook to where it's 'sposed to be. Then screw the bottom screw in just to the point where you can see the hook begin to lower. This ensures no extra play in the operation of the hook.

            The detector is timed right and the machine is a o degrees.The rake sweep hook does not move when it first recycles.Going fishing
            and will look at it next week. Wepauls this machine adjusts just the opposite.

              Check both x-washer pins in both tubes and check the tubes to see if the long holes are worn in the corners. I've seen some where the x-washer pin had worn into the corner and got stuck there and wasn't able to adjust correctly.

                Yeah, what Chip said. Your X-pins might have grooves worn in them and/or the control links slots could be worn badly which will affect the operation also.

                  unplug the power, and lock it out. i would check the control links, pins and x washers. another thing is to check the springs as well, they can break or jam up inside the link. they shouldnt be weak, and should have pressure against the x-pins. you say its at zero degrees, but is it at mechanical zero degrees?

                    The control pins,links,and x washers are all good.
