    Thanks

    Re: GE Pinsetter Motors

    i hate to get off of the subject here but speaking of motors. i was wondering if anyone has fond a replacement motor from grainger, or any place other than a "bowling company"? i can't stand paying those prices for a motor. just wondering i've never been able to find an exact match, it's usually the frame that doesn't match. i could live with a frame conversion kit if i paid half the price for a motor.

      Alex...Grainger does sell a motor that will fit, but it does not have a thermal overload. This is fine for older A's that have thermals in the electrical box...but a modification would be needed to work on newer A-2's. I used a circuit breaker mounted on the motors wiring box to solve the problem.

        Mike, get a cap. as close to the OEM as possible, do not go below the value, a little above will not hurt the motor. Check voltage rating on cap. do not go below the pinsetter voltage.

          Larry:
          It's the physical dimensions that pose the problem in this circumstance, there is no problem meeting the voltages nor Ufs, The caps are stored in the motor legs, and everyone has trouble finding proper caps meeting those requirements.

              Hi Mike, Grainger has an exact replacement, Stock #1A568 at least they did in an older catalog I have. You can check on grainger.com. PJ

                I realize size is the problem, I found the caps at my local motor shop. They had to be ordered, but I have them.

                  Thanks PJ, but already been there. With the old GE models the capacitor is stored in the foot of each side of the motor. The 1A568 will not fit. its too long.

                    Hey Alex, Ive got a different motor on one of my pinsetters. I have no idea where it came from, it looks alot smaller than the others, seems to purr like a kitten though. Ill get the specs off of it tomorrow.
