  • just curious

    Does anybody know how many parts there are on a typical a-2 machine, including all the nuts and bolts? It would be interesting to know, but I don't want to sit down with the parts manual and count them all.I'd lose count for sure!

    You only need 2 tools...WD40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD40. If it moves and it should't, use the tape.

          Semi-interesting story that lacks a punchline:
          Had a manager at the center in which I started in this line of work. He was a "certified" A-2 mechanic. He claimed to have run down the number mentioned above, manually and to the last X-washer, for his instructor in Muskegon. Wouldn't you remember a number like that? I mean, it must've taken a solid day, minimum, to work that out. Well, he didn't remember the figure. Sorry. (Insert groan here.)
          Let us know when you figure it out, Russ. Perhaps you could start a pool to fund your research.

          PS: My bet is on "more than four". He-he.

            i dont know, but ive been told (using that old cliche just seemed fitting), that theres more than 7,000 parts, moving and stationary, in a brunswick machine, (doesnt say wether a, a-2, or jet back)......go figure.......by the way, if you start counting now, maybe youll finish in time for retirement....... ;c)

              Yes there are four parts- Gearbox, Turret, Deck, Elevator frame. each one of these assemblies probably has enough parts to make up the 7000 that straightaman is talking about.

                    Maybe Masternut knows!!!

                    From the looks of his pinsetter pictures I think he cleaned and painted each part individually.I wonder if he remembered to count while doing this?

                      Q: How many parts on an A-2?

                      A: Enough to make it run 10 times better than my 1983 Olds Custom Cruiser Stationwagon, which has 11,955.....

                      I know this because I've had to replace all of them...with the exception of the hazard lights.

                      Maybe GM and Brunswick should merge...

                        Hopefully this isn't too far off topic ..but..

                        Hey Toolz..how about maybe Ford?? Reminds me of the time I was replacing the rear brake shoes on my bro's Tempo, where the pins go in to tie the emergency brake cable to the shoe linkage, it had these funky looking clips that held them in that I ruined when I took em out. Anyway when reinstalling these pins the best thing I could think of to use in thier place were 1/4" x-washers...wouldn't you know they worked like a champ! Made me want to put a Brunswick label next to the "Ford" blue oval! LOL..
