Do you know any manual or guide to strip the playfield of the BSD!?

#2938 4 years ago
Quoted from shock_me:

I don't know of any manual or detailed teardown/rebuild instructions, but you basically start from the top, (ramps), and keep removing parts until it's down as far as you want to go. I know this seems obvious, but you MUST take pics of everything you removed as you go, and when you remove a post I always take a pic of the post in it's place and directly after removing said post I take a pic of the post beside a ruler to show the scale. This is especially important on BSD as there are a lot of different length posts on the playfield. This alone saved me HUGE headaches. I never had one rebuild issue because of the many pics I made myself take

That sounds a good plan, i know that. But i was wondering if there was some manual/correct order to do it... If someone knows it reply please. Thanks shock_me

I see they're doing it on the FT club thread, so I'll post it here...
vote in the thread below if you think BSD is the better game. Currently FT is leading by 1 vote.

Im IN AGAIN... Im going to restore my 4º Bram Stokers Dracula, love and hate relation with this machine...
I have a question, my flippers are so strong, when i make the coffin ramp, the ball always stops a lot on the curve of the ramp... Any way to adjust this?!

Quoted from wugly:

Don't fully understand the question. Are you saying flippers too strong or not enough. At the point in the curve gravity should make ball continue. Whatever is angle of table and do you have the right size space under ramp maybe short or spacer under wire form to tall.

Flippers are very nice and strong, the ball travels very fast and stops a lot on that curve, stops a little bit the flow of on the machine, dont know if it helps...

Quoted from neverahighscore:

Yes that’s normal.

Any ideias to minimize this beaviour?

#6243 8 months ago
Quoted from wugly:

What is causing the ball to slow. Any friction or rubbing? At that point gravity should be making it move. Possible wrong spacers holding ramp or wire form. Easily put back together wrong. Took me 5 tries to get them right. Hopefully not banging into other wore form for castle lock.

I will try to make a video of it, to show you.
