Just joined the club with a nice looking BSD but no translite. If anyone has one available PM me!

Added 18 months ago:

Found a translite....thanks to some hints in old threads

#5355 1 year ago

Can someone post a photo of the switch test display so I can see what is normal? Looks like I get to enjoy the fixing part of pinball ownership for a while.

Got most problems solved. A switch connector was partially off on the MPU board so that was a nice easy fix. Someone installed the EOS leaf switch blades backwards on replacement flipper mechs so that problem is solved.

Getting a lot of rejects on the right ramp, that'll be the next issue to have a look at. Looks installed incorrectly.

#5364 1 year ago
Quoted from aobrien5:

You have the clear plastic that goes on top of the ramp? That's the most common cause of rejects.

I do not......I'll post a photo later:

- lower ramp is lower than the upper by a reasonable amount
- right-hand metal guide is outside of the upper ramp by like a 1/4" that can't be good

#5368 1 year ago

Here are some pictures of the center ramp. Let me know if you think it is okay or not. I will order the protector in any event.

Is the ball guide on the wrong side of the ramp support? Tried looking at some tear down pictures and I suspect it is. If anyone has very detailed shop out / tear down pictures let me know! I ordered a new set of ramps so I'll probably do a full topside tear down.

#5374 1 year ago
Quoted from aobrien5:

Maybe the wrong stand off got put there and the right one is too tall?

Based on your pic looks like my right hand ball guide is on the wrong side of that ramp bracket. If anyone has the tall post measurements and which one goes where that would be great. Looks like whoever did a shop out on this machine messed it up.

My "Disappearing Post Assembly" that holds balls in the castle doesn't seem to have the correct post. The one I have is skinny and wobbles around in the hole, and binds on the ramp.

I haven't been able to find this assembly for sale, nor the post. Assembly is A-16268 and the post is 02-4720.

Anyone know if another "Disappearing Post Assembly" post can be substituted?

Quoted from GRB1959:

Ouch, that is going to leave a mark.

That’s what she said!

Mikonos Dracula also uses apron decals. They are not very interesting -- could be another project to create some cool apron decals!

Trying to remove the main ramp and it won't come off. Seems to be attached under the graveyard? I see in shop out photos there is a large post underneath the ramp. Possible a previous owner screwed the ramp to it underneath the graveyard??

#5973 1 year ago
Quoted from Jgaltr56:

I just removed mine and it wasn't anything unusual. All the screws are visible. Don't forget the coffin wireform and diverter has to come off first.

OK I'm thinking someone screwed the ramp to the post underneath the graveyard...ugh. I'll try to remove the graveyard & see what is going on.

I guess the ramp is supposed to just rest on that tall post?

#5977 1 year ago
Quoted from Jgaltr56:

Yeah I see the post you're talking about. My ramp was just resting on it. I can't imagine how someone would get to it with the graveyard in the way. Maybe they removed the backpanel? There's no reason to screw it down there.

No reason but seems someone did it anyway! I removed the under-playfield nut on that post. Can I just tap it out now from the bottom?

Any source for quality cabinet decals? There used to be some for sale on eBay but they don't appear to be up any more. Ministry of Pinball has them but very expensive.

J206 and J208 are equivalent

#6332 8 months ago
Quoted from Jakers:

So you’re saying I can unplug j206 and j208...then plug them into j207 and j209? What is the reason for having equivalent connections?

Yup you can see that documented here: http://pinwiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Williams_WPC at section 6.24.3 Switch Matrix Problems

I guess it is to supply redundancy but not really sure

Very nice looking art -- and the apostrophe is a nice curly one, that's a killer feature for me!

Working on my tear-down, open up the power box -- no varistor, no thermistor! Glad I am going through this exercise.

Backglass ordered.....guess I'll have a spare repro translite for sale at some point!

I am very slowly working through rewiring my BSD playfield. Some previous owner rewired it all but half-assed with wires running all over the place. I'm completely rewiring it partly for fun/education....lucky it's a long winter coming up in Canada!

I have another BSD sitting beside it for reference.
