Excited to be in the club! Scored this partially restored centaur with a new cab and CPR Playfield. Wow this such a cool and unique pin! Way ahead of its time IMO.

Congrats! Nice looking machine. Is it really a new cabinet, or a restored one? If new, do you know who made it?

Thanks,

So i asked the seller, sounds like it is a restored cabinet, not a new one. My apologies!

just picked up a centaur 2 and observed that the front legs are 28 1/2 inches and the rear legs are 30 1/2 inches. No way this is supposed to be like this, right? I am guessing correst size is 28 1/2 all the way around?

you are correct

I think I might leave it like that. Makes it so I don't have to use super long levelers in the back

Sorry, I missed this post. Yeah I solved the issue. The previous owner had one of the rom chips in the wrong slot, I move it to the correct one and it’s working fine.

Thanks for helping out.

Greetings - I am building my own Centaur cabinet to transfer my Centaur II parts into and fully restore. I have a Xenon and Star Trek that I have modeled the cabinet minus game specific details. Only part of the cabinet that I cannot find any good pictures of is the white display/light board behind the backglass.

Could somebody please post decent resolution pic of this white panel behind the back glass taken as straight on/perpendicular as possible? I can get the light and display positions from the pic in my cad system by overlaying it over the actual panel perimeter size from Xenon and/or Star Trek.

Thanks!

Since you are new here, you should know that a Centaur head is not the same as Xenon or Star Trek in that it is not as deep due to how it is hinged. This will only affect how the graphics line up when it comes time to paint it. If stone cold originality is not important to you there is nothing wrong with using one of the heads you have. You should consider using a neck and hinge setup from an Eight Ball Deluxe, Flash Gordon etc. PM me if you need more detailed instruction.

I am having problems with the red targets behind the ORBS drops. First is when the red targets are hit result in air balls. Second there is not enough room for the red target to move when struck ( due to clearance with the white rubber)to actuate it’s respective switch.

Before I start tinkering, wondering if anyone else has resolved.

So I have an odd issue with a Bally Centaur and an AllTek mpu. All switches are identical to the stock MPU, it has been reset and game switches are correct for this game. For some reason the magnet capture does not work with the AllTek, but works fine with the stock board. I have looked in the manual to see if there is an on/off magnet feature but did not see anything. Any ideas or could this MPU possibly be defective? Thanks

Quoted from Kevster219:

There is no feature to disable the magnet.
The magnet is controlled by the signal leaving the MPU board at J4 pin 8 (green-black wire) and goes to the solenoid driver board on J4 pin 10.
Have you re-terminated the J4 MPU connector yet?
This signal should go logic low when the magnet is to be activated.

Okay well thats a start thanks for that info. But I’m not sure what you mean by “re-terminated”?

new crimp connector on that wire

No I have not but I do have a new upgraded connector kit I can try. Just seemed odd it works with the original and not the AllTek after many attempts. I will try this and report back thanks!

So Dave from AllTek just called me back and said to set all my coin doors settings to 03 as they are all on 00 now. So along with the connectors I am going to try that as well. I do know if you don't have setting 18 on “03” you will not get all the sounds.

What's the best place to get the best Centaur BG? I don't care if it's mirrored or not, but I know there were quality issues with some manufacturers. Thanks

There is CPR, Planetary Pinball, and there's Ebay, however I feel your really taking a chance with them.
