    hi ken,
    it's kind of hard to help with this one without
    a little more you have electronic triggering if so what kind.if you have brunswick
    elec triggering and you still have some of the
    old time delays you can put an old one back in
    and stick a jumperwire in the LO cable to get
    the machine to run off of the rake or reset.
    hope this helps,

    the little things cause the big problems

        If you have electronic triggering, you can wire a relay into the circuit of the triggering system to pull the cycle solenoid. You can wire it into the reset button up front also, but I would recommend putting a fuse in the circuit for the solenoid to avoid burning up the solenoid if a bowler holds the button down too long. It would only be temporary and the machine will cycle too soon on first ball. The other option is to put a delay-on relay in instead of a normal relay, this will get you the delay you will need, but by the time you get done buying what you need, you would have paid for the repairs you need to do. If you need any help setting up this circuit, call me...602-249-1715
