  • Pit mounts

    Just wondering what type of pit mounts everybody is using. I have a mixture of different types of urethane mounts and was just wondering what you "super-techs" use on your babies. (Please, no Heisenburg compensators) LOL

      I use the old metal ones, I like them cause you can just replace the rubber mounts when they go bad. Makes more sense to me rather than replacing the whole mount. I got some pretty cool rubber mounts from Grainger that are slightly taller and just as tough. I have been using these on the front to elevate the pitboard slightly and improve pin flow. Works pretty good, if anyone is interested I can get the Grainger part#

        I use some of the traditional rubber mounts and some urethane, usually the vantage ones.

          I have always favored the traditional style as well, but my current center has lots of the red santoprene mounts, They hold up very well. I cant remember the last time I ordered any.

            I HAVE USED BRUNSWICK SANTOPRENE MOUNTS IN THE PAST, AND WHAT I FIND IS THAT THE STEAL SPACER TENDS TO EGG-OUT THE INSIDE OF THE HOLES, THUS, CAUSING A SLIGHT TICKING NOISE AND THE SPACER NO LONGER FITS TIGHT IN THE HOLE. NOW, I USED THE OLD BLACK RUBBER ONES IN ALL MY PITS, AND THEY SEEM TO LAST, PLUS THEY ARE A LOT CHEAPER THAN THE SANTOPRENE MOUNTS. JUST AN OBSERVATION.

              Personally, I like the green urethane ones that quality sells, they've been pretty bullet-proof in here

                We redesigned our urethane pit mount 2 years ago and also reformulated the urethane so it will bend like a willow tree in a wind storm. Our old mount was strong but like an oak it would snap if bent too far.If anyone would like to try one free just call us,E-mail,etc. Jim

                  I like the original bruns mounts 4 piece. I have found the one piece is too stiff. I like flexabilty. I believe the stiffer the mounts are the harder the shaker assy. has to work. Thus causing more wear and tear on assy.

                    I agree the old style black mounts are the easiest to change. I use a keps-it nut instead of the original acorn lock nut, makes it easier to undo if the mount comes apart.

                      Hey Bowl Techers.
                      Does Brunswick still sell the TORSIONAL pit mounts???
                      About 8 years ago they gave me 2 sets to try in a pair of lanes.
                      The rubber bushings inside the mounts were worn out after about a year and a half.
                      I tried to order just the rubber parts because the rest of the mounts were still good.
                      Good old Brunswick told me they only sold whole sets of torsional mounts and not individual parts for them.
                      Well needless to say they went in the trash!

                          Hey all,

                          We use the "green" mounts sold by QBC. Funny how we identify the urethane parts by color...heh
                          We did experiment with some home-made hard plastic shaker mounts that were capped with some type of rubbery material. The front mounts on the pin deck side seemed to work well, still have quite a few on the machines. The rear mounts ended up having a life span of about 3-4 weeks. Not very good, had to change them all back out again.

                          Go for the GREEN ones
