  • detector

    I don't know what it's called but it's that long arm inside the detector that breaks off when someone doesn't know how to adjust the 1-2 ball light and then the machine won't go into second ball, LOL. I've never claimed to be a great mechanic but I do know what is likely to break when something like this happens. Reguardless, I ripped the detector out and sure enough the piece was broke and I had to tear it down and replace it, is there a way to do this without removing the detector or is this the only way? Lucky me it happend during a full house of moonlight and had to repair it after it was over with a full house of traveling league coming in the next morning. I am getting better this one only took 5 minuets to figure out and 1 1/2 hours to take out repair and put back in, one day I might even know what it's called.

    Drill:
    Its just called a detector latch, have seen old discreet scoring houses replace them by driving out the B shaft, as it had to be done on a regular basis. However, that caused other related problems as well. If one is lucky, its not broken, just bent, which is just as easily rebent to proper position, provided of course the are not of the cast design, but the stamped steel type.

      These seem to be of the cast design and yes it was broken about an inch from the bottom. I keep a few in the parts drawer just in case and am glad I do.
      thanks
