  • Spare Parts A2

    Well, they tell me I will have a budget soon.
    Can someone provide me with an honest spare parts list for the A2's?
    I know that I need carpets for the shaker tables, and chutes in all machines, but what other parts should I have on hand? (i.e., nuts, bolts, screws, belts, relays and wiring parts.)
    Please help me. You may e-mail me directly at or answer here, your option.
    Thank you who have and can take the time to assist.

    Back when Brunswick built new centers with
    A-2 equipment you always recieved a spare parts kit with your new equipment,you could
    probably contact Brunswick and maybe get
    a copy of what parts they sent out in the spare parts kit.

      Hi Gene, If you still need something to go by for spare parts inventory, order the Service Parts Control Record part # 12-900259 from Brunswick, it's about $15.00.

        Alrighty, we just opened a new center w/used A2's in it. and I can tell you what we've replaced:
        Y-Brace between ball tracks-2
        Reset solinoids-2
        Cross-Conveyor Belts-5
        Ball Accelerator(if you have them) relays-3
        1 amp *low blow* fuses-3
        Motor to Gearbox belt-2
        motor to backend belt-3
        Turret wires-BUNCH(these can be repared by welding though)

        Mainly I say-Have at least one spare belt of every kind;
        x-tra time-delay module
        and anything else I've mentioned.

        This is a brief list, but I'm not the mechanic, and I just had to remember his griping of the top of my head...

          Spotting Fingers!!! Oh My GOD, you can ~never~ have too many spotting fingers! (Left and right)

          X-washers - plan on a bunch of those, too.
          Ballwheel and pinwheel roller flanges (The round plastic "guides" that are often broken)

          It also really depends on how much you'll need to rely on each machine. If you don't have full leagues, and can rely on "next-day" parts, that may help a bunch, replace things as you need that way. But if you've got a full house every night, and downtime is critical, you'll need to plan on a larger inventory.
