Question, why are you guys not using the lighting flippers?
Planetary Pinball has them for sale, I bought a set today!
Okay, digging mine out from a multiple game buy I picked up a few years back. Question, in the solenoid test locker ramp goes up but when select down nothing happens. Coil has power and if I ground the tab on transistor It will work? Am I missing something?
Can someone snap a close up picture of the down ramp coil and mounting with wiring too. Thx in advance!
Can someone confirm if this correct. Fixing blown out holes and removed pirates cove plastic and saw this. I know the screw is wrong. Asking about the posts
Can someone please tell me what coil is mounted on your machine for the ball popper on the rear of the playfield. What I have and what is listed for parts are 2 different. I'm just seeing if updated or previous owner used what he had. thx
No, 2 are the same and one is different. 2 of them are 2piece and one is a cap. I will get you part numbers shortly
Quoted from dudah:
This may be a silly question - but do you guys have foam behind your targets?
Every single one of my targets has the foam missing with no evidence it was ever there.
I kinda like it because it makes them super sensitive!
EDIT: Searched this thread to find that there is no foam!
My stock targets never had any. Added after restore
Quoted from dudah:
This switch in the lock section keeps getting pushed to the side causing balls to get stuck and a real pain in my ass.
Straightened it out when I shopped it out recently and it came back, what am I missing?
Here is what mine look like. Make sure to bend wire so the tail is below slit cut out.
As you can see by my pic I had same problem.
It is a German reimport in process of restoration. Had a ton of stripped post holes. Fixing all that before I completly strip it.
Quoted from JMWRainwater:
Were you able to find a spare piece, ericpinballfan? I'm on the same search right now.
Any luck on locating this piece, nitrojcrawf? Hoping to score the same piece or get in contact with turnedwoods for a custom piece.
This was the guy who reached out to me on FaceBook. You can try and reach out.
Quoted from BertoDRINK1:
I know mine doesn't have it. Do you know the part number for it, is anyone carrying the part now I would like to install it.
Quoted from Mancave:
So i've got a bunch of parts on order and despite the fact i was just going to get it up and running for now...well i changed my mind and decided to strip the top of the PF, give it a good clean/polish and go over some of the metal parts also. After getting down to the basics left on the PF i spotted this unusual sight at the back of the pirates cove, surely this wouldn't be factory?? Not even sure why it would need some sort of stop as the kick out arm doesn't go back far enough in the cut out hole to hit the PF anyway. It sure has been hitting on the rubber around the arse up star post though cause it's made a big dint in the perished rubber.[quoted image]
Mine is the same way
Do you have the correct plunger on that link? Seams like it is not pulling back enough. Or is something blocking the arms path.
Can you take a better picture of the bottom of the ramp. I kind looks like the piece on the bottom of the ramp my be bent up against the ramp bottom.
