  1. Thanks to a comment by FOUILLET about the 1×2 plate, I was able to get this to work. The part in question is p/n 30363 Slope #18, 4×2. Put two 1×2 plates on both points wear it fits in the build on PDF page 15 on the instruction number 19. It does create another problem thou. P/N 85940 liftarm, modified bar 1×2 must be removed. It was installed on PDF page 12, instruction number 14. I have not worked out a replacement for this.

  2. Good morning,

    I encountered the same problems as everyone else, however by raising the input slope with a 1×2 plate the problem disappeared then I had to modify the connection of the output module so that it did not jam too much the sliding part. In short, like each GBC module, it takes some adjustments or even small modifications to work well…

    1. I could never get this to work. Do you remember what step in the instructions you added the 1×2 plate? Thank you.

    2. Hi and good day. I never got this to work. You said you added a plate. do you remember what step you added the 1×2 plate. Thank you for any help you can give.

  3. i have built this module and am getting constant jams at the point where the balls enter the “zig zag” . i love the look of this module but am fustrated about the jams. anyone have the same thing happen?

    1. I just built this and I’m having the same issue. We’re you able to correct this?

  4. Hey all

    Very easy build.
    Only issue I have is this thing will operate for hours on end with no problems then one of the lift arms won’t drop all the way and 2 balls get jammed. After that it will jam continuously until you get frustrated and pull everything apart, in which case it works fine once you put it back together again.

    I’m wondering if the pins are having issues with the movement over time?
