          really any kind of push solenoid would do ... cant find one anywhere thats 110v


          • #6
            I cant see war that would be on a machine !

              looks like its been discontinued from the manufacturer. i also use these.

                Is that used in conjunction with some kind of electronic trigger device? If so, what manufacturer? At one time, had 12 lanes of Bowl-Tronics solenoid trigger system attached to shotgun, but not like that. Switched to Bowl-Tronics wired through TDM.

                  image.jpgimage.jpgDo if these solenoids are no longer manufactured .... Does anyone have a inexpensive way to replace this method of cycling ?

                    thinking about flipping the mounting bracket for the current solenoid so I can mount a pull type solenoid above the bracket the solenoid contacts/trips .... in my head it will work I will try and do a test pair on friday morning ...ill let u know what happens...incase anyone is wondering ... the rt solenoid recieves signal from sensors in camera....the rake then falls opening a trigger clip on the rake shaft that allows a signal to be sent to the tiume delay mod...then to the cycle solenoid... so if the rake trip solenoid dosnt fire to drop the rake the machine will not cycle ... the machine cycling is kinda important so im kinda looking for an alternative quickly ...the signal is sent to the solenoid via the camera sensors ... i have bowltronics still installed on everylane from the previous scoring system but either way for these to work the rake trip solenoid needs to fire

                      what a strange looking contraption.

                        You could use a pull style solenoid...using a bolt through plunger end...mount a L shaped link to the bolt and the small end of the L to the angle section you were pushing against. You will need to experiment with the length of the L shaped link. I think it would work...I think it would work better if you had links on both sides of the solenoid but not sure if you will find one with electrical connections in a way that would not interfere with the second L link.

                        Just a thought...

                        *sigh* Hello friends..

                        I had a 4:1 go bad and I've never seen or done one before. Trying to search the depths of the forums, YouTube videos, it didn't seem too bad....

                        Left a rant about this in the bowling forum…

                        I’ve already repaired a a number of Franklin FE motors using the Bluffton-style end cap and terminal board kit (090-004-582)....

                        At what thickness do you replace the clutch face.
                        Is there a minimum dimension from the clutch face to the rivet.

                        Is anyone running the solderless relays on the accelerators? How do you like them? What brand? How difficult to convert was it? Would love the feed back as I'm about to switch...
