    Re: cycle problems

    What is the cycle proplem. Recycling, or not cycling occasionally?

    It looks like you've done about everything except...

    Have you checked the clutch and reset linkages? Check for any binds in the movement of the clutch, and in all linkages and pivots. Check actuator link. I've had some of the X-washer pins get worn and cause intermittent problems. Check and make sure the correct springs are installed on the clutch workings. (Stop lever, Daspot, etc.)

    Hope this helps..

    Let us know what you find..

      Re: cycle problems

      Had one do this to me once and it turned out to be a broken cushion follower link twords the kickback side,found the broken part would turn a bit and get stuck causing it to trigger when cushion went to sit back into place.Odd but it happened.

        Re: cycle problems

        It's always a good idea to post what type machines you're talking about ... eliminates a lot of unrelated answers [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

        What I would start with is to see what the rake is doing when the machine recycles ... is it "snapping" down (possible marginal parts in shotgun, cushion linkage, or ball not exiting fast enough and cushion dropping on it), or if it's powering down like a reset button push, I'd look at the clutch (arm getting up high enough), dashpot/bumper (latch not always engaging) cycle solenoid (can stick intermittently).

          Re: cycle problems

          ok I'll try to help.... I can't for the life of me remeber the proper names but I'll describe them the best I can! lol

          I had this problem on one machine, it worked fine most of the time but every now and then would recycle. what I found it to be was a missing bearing... the outer race had come off and all that was left was a kinda 'rim'.
          the name of the part I can't think of but on the linkages, it's the bit that moves up and down with the roller on the end... the bearing on the lower end of that was stuffed (that bearing followed a small cam)

          hopefully that might be of help...

            Re: cycle problems

            Are you referring to the Clutch Lever?

            Had that happen once, except the bearing was GONE. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img] The lever was bent over just enough to catch the stop. It would cycle occasionally too though.

                Re: cycle problems

                If youve got the newer style gearbox then I would check the dashpot stop screw. When the plastic breaks they have a tendency to move around (for lack of a better description). And every once in a while they will move to a low spot and cause the plunger lever to be to high when when the clutch latch tries to latch the reset lever. Also if you have Qubica scoring check the reflectors for the ball detector, the might be loose and move out of alignment every so often. William

                  hey don't forget about 180 interlock link. If adjusted too high clutch latch will slip out of paralell links. Clutch latch or related parts may be defective. Watch the latch when turret dumps pins, if latch moves ever so slightly, this is your problem (I feel). This happens to me.
