  • deck heights

    What should the height of the deck be when it goes down to detect on a strike cycle? Also what should the height be when it is setting a new rack? (Height from the pindeck that is)

    Deck Jam,
    The height of the deck when detecting a strike should be about 8 1/2 inches. The height when setting new pins is 15/16 of an inch plus or minus 1/32" for machines with scotch yokes and 1 inch plus or minus 1/32" for those with the long link. Check the deck height at 270 degrees.

      Hey Deck Jam....

      One other hint about deck heights. Make sure you check them at the three points the triangle shape of the deck makes (to make sure its level). Also....sometimes slightly tilting a deck a bit down at the front or down at the rear will help to get pins on spot if youve run out of room using the adjustment methods in the book (loosening the four bolts to slide the stationary deck foward or rearward). Down in front = pins back a bit. Down in rear (or up in front) = pins set a bit further toward the approach.
