  • Macine wont set pind back down on 2nd ball

    The machine works fine... except when it goes to put the pins back down after setting them up it drops them.. The moving deck also moves a bit..

    Thanks

      ok it sets pins back down fine on 2nd ball now, but when it goes to set on first ball.. When the deck is going back up the pins rub a bit and wobble quite a bit, but they dont fall over.

            Moving deck cable out of adjustment. Needs to be tighter.

                ok this is wierd.. buckets are hitting the pins on the way up, so I tightened the moving deck cable, and it broke the scissor cable.. Could it be that the scissor cable was ready to go..

                I have a new scissor cable on, but dont want to try to tighten the deck cable again, until I get some input...

                Thanks
