Seek Tubing Diagram for Ampico A
By Bob Bujeaud

I have recently completed the rebuilding of my 1928 Haines upright
with Ampico action, which was several months 'on and off' in the
rebuilding process.  Everything appears to work correctly except that
it won't automatically re-roll.  The tubing diagrams I have don't help,
as my piano appears to have a different re-roll mechanism than is shown
in the "Ampico Reproducing Piano Inspectors Reference Book"; mine has
only one re-roll cutout block.  I suspect that I may have incorrectly
re-tubed something.

Does anyone know of any diagrams out there of what appears to be
a change in Ampico's re-roll/repeat/electric cut-off mechanism?
