Quoted from burningman:

Why was the head painted a different color than the cabinet?

Dunno. Mine's faded so that I never really noticed. Pics on IPBD sure make it look like that's the case though.

Quoted from T2play:

Went through all tests and everything seems to fire, just when I push the start button nothing happens, could the switch be bad, is there a way to bypass the switch to see if it is bad?

A couple of simple things you might not have thought of:
Both balls in the trough?
Trough switches registering balls in place?
Game either set to free play, or credits showing?

You COULD jumper the start button with a test wire, but testing for continuity across the switch with a DMM when the button is pushed first may be an idea.

Quoted from rottenrobert1313:

My Bride uses 3 balls even though its only a 2 multiball game. Could it only have 2 in the trough and needs to see a 3rd?

Whoops! My mistake. Should see three balls in the trough to start a game.

Well see, there's the problem. He's looking for the Helmet, not the Helmit. Hope he finds one.

Quoted from timtim:

where can i get them?

Direct from Cliffy. He's great to deal with.

Can you provide a link for the protectors, please?

Work great to cover up previously chipped and cracked ramp entrances also.

Quoted from sbjmg:

How can I buy a copy of the modified L-6 Rom?

Try contacting John Wart Jr. Either PM him on here or email through his site http://www.thatpinballplace.com/. I think he will custom burn roms by request. He has made a few for me that are not listed on his site.

Quoted from nightsearcher:

Has anybody put a full lexan playfield protector from Germany on their repro or original playfield yet?

Have it in the house and ready to go. Won't have time to install for quite a while yet.
Decided to install one since the game has needed a full shop job since I picked it up and might as well while everything is apart for cleaning.

#1130 4 years ago

Yeah..............
So anyway, how about some pics lit up, tatman? She looks great!

Quoted from jsa:

Anyone know where this plastic goes?

Just below the right side of the helmet, on top of the ramp.
You can see it in this pic I stole from IPDB.
Nice work!

Quoted from jsa:

'm really hesitant to do the 2.0 upgrade because I'm loving the game so much as it is.

I'm not going to do 2.0 because it is very expensive.

So I finally got around to installing the playfield protector.
https://www.playfield-protectors.com/Home/Details/kVhQbtXUGUKXzln-Rn4Uog?categoryid=22&category=Playfield%20Protectors&name=The%20Machine%3A%20Bride%20of%20Pin%C2%B7bot%20%7C%201991

I previously installed protectors on my Firepower and Sorcerer.
The good news: Fit is prefect, no trimming at all. Game plays sharp and quick with the protector installed. Playfield has a new shine that looks almost like new clearcoat.
The bad news (sort of): Much more work to install than the other games I did. Plan to completely shop the game, clean everything, and change the rubbers while you are at it. Both ramps, the wireform, the mini-playfield, and the helmet all need to come off. The install took about four hours, but someone who has torn down the game before could do it much more quickly. The ball return frames need to come off, and if your game is like mine, the machine screws are going to be lock-tighted into the t-nuts under the playfield. You'll need to replace the machine screws and t-nuts after you snap the old screws off. And two of the t-nuts are under the flipper mounting brackets, so those need to come off too.

Still have to tweak a couple of switches and get the spinner tuned up again, but looks great and plays great.

Quoted from Chosen_S:

If you will heat up the t nuts with your soldering iron for about 15 seconds, then start removing the screw slowly, the locktite will soften and let loose so you don't break anything

Yeah, but by the time I realized what was going on, I had already snapped two of the six off. At that point I was short on patience. Snapping the rest off was sort of therapeutic.

Quoted from mrWol64:

Anyone had experienced installing these Cliffy’s?

Yes. Easy to install and hides (and protects) bashed up ramp ends nicely. Great product!

Quoted from Jakusu:

Would prefer to light each face as it is achieved but there are no corresponding Lamps for this I believe to piggy back.
Any ideas on this? The basic GI lit all the time 4 faces is pretty lame.

This is a good idea. Should have been set up this way from the factory. If you figure it out, please post how.

Quoted from Jmckune:

What’s ironic is after mentioning this. The “problem” seems to have gone away without doing anything.

Just like taking your car to a mechanic.

Quoted from Jmckune:

I would bet it would have been demolished with the rest of the place.

Is the guy in the hi-vis safety vest part of the building demolition crew?

Congrats! That cleaned up nicely.

Quoted from MrCleanHead:

I was wondering if I should mylar the playfield.

No. Won't add value. If whoever you sell it to wants to put it on, they can.
I would advise that person not to, however. As long as it's kept clean with good condition balls, you should not need mylar in home use.
