  • 1 More Then Were Ok

    One more rather frustrating problems is ping going down the ball accel belt and getting lodged at the front. This can be rather time consuming getting all of the balls out of the front.. Any suggestions..

    Ken:

    Do you have the pin deflector (bungee) cords in place? They minimize the problems with pins getting carried up the lift rods, which is definitely a nuisance:

      You could buy the new accel pans brunswick has with the trap door in it, or just cut the hole in the pans that you have, like I am doing. Have not had a pin go into the pans with the hole as of yet, but holding my breath, I can feel it coming soon.

          hi Ken,
          in addition to the bungee cord you should also
          have a fence on the even lane. alot of people take this out because they think it is useless
          but it will prevent 99% of pins in the accelerator.most likely someone bofore you
          took them out.the worst that can happen with
          them in is a pin in the return track which is
          alot easier to clear then one in the dropsweep

          good luck,

            Pins are dropping off of the turn pan.. down into the track.. and the ball is taking them down the subway all the way to the end... Any help..

              hi ken,
              sometimes that can be caused by a simple thing
              like a broken part tool or something getting
              caught under the turnpan between the turnpan
              and the cross conveyor.if that's not it then
              you have to start checking adjustments
              for the turnpan pinguide and pinwheel. i have also seen a pinwheel that had alot of gunk in
              it hold on to a pin long enough to carry it
              over the pan.

                Ken, I will get a picture and the measurements to you on monday. Its easy to cut the pan with a jigsaw with a good metal blade.

                  Ken,
                  The easiest way to solve the pins in the underground is to prevent them from making it to the return track. Pin deflector cords do a very good job of this when they are used. However, your problem as you stated is that they are getting there from the turn pan. I would concentrate my efforts on solving the turn pan problem...the underground pins will take care of themselves then...

                    Thank you we resolved this one with bungee cords.. Across the right side of the turn pan, so that the pins couldnt fall out onto the track.
