Quoted from pinballaddicted:
The nylon is the lube. I would not put anything there as it will only collect the coil dust and become grinding paste. When I get some time, I am thinking about bending the bracket the light is on so it does not shine straight into everyone eyes.
Our clock hand occasionally keeps spinning and does not stop until you turn the game off. I have emailed Stern a few times and got no response. I am fairly sure it is the node board in the topper of a faulty opto. I have already had the topper apart a couple of times and I am not keep to do it again to find another fuck up from Stern.
Agreed...anything on that nylon will eventually gum it up (like a coil sleeve). If anything, I'd put a slight graphite dust on the door hinges...helped ensure it always opens fully. I bent my light bracket down w the red bulb and very happy w the effect.
After all my efforts, the node board on rev 2 was not quite right, causing the clock to give crazy times. They replaced it, and all is as good as it can be in current state.
There will be some code down the road for it at some point (stated numerous times) to polish things a bit and address a few bugs. Both the topper and grandpa's lab can confuse itself on occasion currently.
The topper adds SO much to gameplay, interaction wise....I couldn't go back now. That, along with the lower playfield really set this game apart from others, imho....
