I've had mine for about 18-20 years, it had a very bad early life and had seen some dampness.

It's fully LED'd, backbox and playfield. I got tired of playing with 30 year old displays/connectors and also installed a full LED display kit into mine. It's an early model System 6 Power Supply with transformer in the head version.

I recently buffed out and rebuilt the coin door from better parts I had laying around.

The blue and greens on mine were almost translucent. LED's were a HOLY CRAP moment for them.

I was posting a vid for someone in regard to a Space Invaders I just LED'd out, and while I was at it I took a vid of my BK all LED'd out.

It's an early model with the System 6 power supply, transformer in the head type. I've owned this machine about 20 years and have been slowly rebuilding it after having an early abused life.

It is full LED.
Cointaker Frosted Warm White in all the GI.
Color matched inserts (Cointaker and Pinball Life).
Displays are custom made by MSpeath.

For the displays, you may be better off just buying new LED ones. Do you at least have the cables?

For the power supply, is your big transformer in the head (System 6 supply with no GI relay on it) or is it down in the cabinet (system 7 supply with GI relay)?

Ok then you need the top power supply pictured here. Same as my BK.


You can buy an XPin or Rottendog replacement for about $110.


And a new replacement driver board that is pin compatible with that MPU for $199
Or a rebuilt original.

Let me look, I may have an original one and a driver board. ( I know I have them, just not sure if I have any rebuilt). I'll drop you a PM if I do.

Hard to say, I can fix my MPU's, so I'd keep everything original. If this were winter and I was in workshop mode, I'd say send it to me and I'll clean it up and test it in my BK. But right now its too nice out to lock myself indoors. )

Mine is black on the main buttons, red on the Magna-save.

The one on the original flyer is White main, red magna.

Mine had the black legs, I ended up swapping them for the same era chrome legs. Chrome looks very nice on a BK, IMHO.

Edit: Grabbed a more recent shot with chrome legs.

Haas did an awesome write up on converting Black Knight to WCS Era flippers here.
