Can a BK owner, please check their BK and see if it has a label that declares what type of fuse should go on the back of the backglass board?

10 amp 32V

Here is my PF, I bought this game NIB back in '06.
Steve played it and he liked it.

Quoted from mof:

Also, I couldn't find a label for this one in the base rear of the machine... Anyone have a label saying what kind of fuse it should be?

GLH 8 125V

Quoted from HHaase:

I used Cointaker 90 degree for he inserts and warm white frosted for the GI. Their super bright and such are just too bright for me. Shouldn't have any flicker issues with any of the bayonet base pieces on the market, I haven't found any that aren't rectified except cheap wedge based stuff.
Mayfair amusements has nos back glasses from an early 90's re-run, very very nice

I think Mayfair is history, the link I have no longer works and I couldn't find them with a Google search.

They are not pink they are salmon and should match the sticker on the cap.
AM repros were redder because Alan thought it was faded but it isn't fade it is supposed to be that color.

Quoted from mof:

What sticker on what cap?

Look at Silverunicorn's pic, the original cap is hot stamped with a fleur de lis pattern and a sticker on the pop bumper cap.
Most of the originals were broken not in gameplay but from people soldiering them with the balls in the game.
The caps are unobtainium.

That is one of Alan's caps he used the original stamp to make them.
The color difference on the decal is very subtle and you don't see it unless they are side by side.
He gave me one at the Hollywood Park show, I put it on my game and the original is in the coinbox.

We played it right out of the box, typical trough switch adjustments but the rubbers were dead and needed to be replaced.
I took off plastics and changed rubbers cleaned a few oxidized sockets and wax.
Drops were sticky but broke in playing it, they were real snappy after I took it to PPE.
Also after assembly the on/off switch was faulty, the rivet for the lug was on the edge instead of the hole in the middle and the wire fell off.
I had one on the shelf and just changed it out.
A few of the inserts are cupped, I just left it original, I don't want to ship the PF.
I also tuned the spinner and lubed it with Eezox.
You will just have to see, even though it is new it still has sat in the box now for 33 years.
It may need a Big Blue, I bought one from The Real Bob Roberts but haven't needed it so far.

So far it is holding up great with no signs of wear.
Personally I wouldn't clear it just keep it waxed and keep it original.

Saw a bit of an info thing about the new movie Grown Ups 2 coming out in the next couple weeks. One of the scenes from the movie had a Black Knight in the background, next to a hyperball of all things.

It happens.

What's a "Big Blue"?

The big capacitor in the head.

Quoted from Chosen_S:

I seem to be missing the green plastics next to the lower flippers, anyone have extras I could buy?!?

Those didn't come on the game, they were something Alan Meyer made back in the day.
He also made repro hot stamped caps but those as well as originals are almost impossible to find.
