  • Detector Timing

    How can I go about correcting the timing on a detector that was pulled and now the timing is all screwed up......I pulled it and didn't make sure of "where it was" I only make that mistake once [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: Detector Timing

    There are 2 ways. One is at 0 degrees using the timing pin, and the other way is at 90 degrees. I think the better one is at 90 degrees. Make sure your 40 inch rod is dead center of the 4 to 1 at 0 degrees. Cycle the pinsetter to 90 strike, no pins on the lane, and lock the machine down so the deck stays there. Then look at the strike cam follower through the "hole" in the right side of the detector. ( 10 pin side). That roller should be sitting perfectly in the low of the cam. Not above the low, or past it. If its off, take off the detector and simply move the gear whichever way it needs to go. Remember, the pinsetter must be at 90 degrees strike, no pins on the lane because the deck will be at a different level than with 1 st ball standing pins.

    Good luck.

      I agree with Sal on the 90 degree strike method. The roller nests in the low of the strike cam. You can't miss!
