this thread is for the 50ish people that do have games. go over to any of the other TBL threads to talk about future builds.

Quoted from inhomearcades:

I can grab some photos of the underside of the playfield. I'll also update this thread with the part numbers for the transistor and leds used on the boards when I have a chance.

Just stumbled across this thread. Really great info. Very sad to see the mold and corrosion on your game. Makes a guy wonder what those 40 sitting on their asses at ARA are looking like now days.

Not sure if you found the LED's yet. But, these are a direct replacement. I had 2 of them out on my game.

Mouser Electronics. The part number is: CLP6B-MKW-CB0E0133.

Someone earlier mentioned an owners forum - did that happen - really appreciate all the info here. Mine is on route and has had a ton of play and we're going to be rebuilding a lot of stuff that needs to be fixed up after so long getting beat up by the public. Thanks! Will update some of the info of things we've found too. Since there's no 'games played' audit all I have is the standard stuff you all get in the reports but did connect it online for a bit where it does actually track games played but haven't had it online for a while and re-connecting it didn't update (assuming something at DP isn't working for that potentially?)

Not asking for numbers but I would Guess TBL does incredible on route! I know I wouldn't be able to pass it without playing and the cult following for the movie is rather large. Congrats for sharing such a rare title.

Here are the starlock caps for the shaft of the rug. They are a pain in the ass to install. But, come in handy if you need to replace the rig decal.

From eBay. The part number is: 263775512921. Item description is: 16X10mm Starlock axle hub.

I also cup down and tapered a Williams flipper bushing to mount on the bottom of the mini playfileld. The bushing DP used was not the best and you could start to see slight wear on the mini playfileld from the flipper sliding on it. The mini playfileld is already dimpled for the Williams style bushing, so it just seemed like the logical change. It did take some work so it didn't bind being the flipper mexh is below the main playfield.

Quick update on progress:

Cleaned everything with mold killer after disassembly, painted with mold killing primer, and top coated with some black. It looks terrible in the picture, but actually nice in reality...

The bowling alley wasn't too bad, so just a quick cleaning and re-installation for now. Currently trying to get my rug stepper motor to function at 100% After that, I'm planning on doing a full year down to re-plate all the parts under the playfield and in the cabinet.

We think the motor in the bowling alley on mine is burned out.
Anyone know if that is for sale somewhere?

#59 16 days ago

the launcher motor? its a stepper motor, nothing fancy can get a lot of places. see if there is any labeling on it.

also, stepper motors rarely burn out, so doubt that is even the issue. what are symptoms? is it stuttering? the most common thing with that is here: http://www.dutchpinball.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=150

The thing that drops the ball on the bowling alley sticks and jumps around.
It doesn't scroll smoothly back and forth like it used to.

If it’s jerky then you need to take off the orange piece and re glue it on.

#62 16 days ago

We already did that. Also the light in the lower play field is on all of the time instead of just coming on when it is active.

#63 16 days ago

try running it without the orange piece installed and see if its smooth or not.

the bowling alley lighting is mounted to the big playfield pcb above. is it stuck on a particular color (those are RGB) or white?
