Technically it’s not a Pinball but still Chicago Coin!

#452 53 days ago

My sound stage is having a ball / player count issue being caused by the ball count spider gear not fully returning home. I cleaned all the contacts and loosened the tension a little but no joy. Are there replacement springs around for these or can i maybe get another half turn out of it, or is there another fix?

#453 53 days ago
Quoted from Chalkey:

If it steps up with ease, you can give it more return tension, but first, after
cleaning, have you lubed (with light grease) the Wiper Board? And I have to
be truthful, after lubing, I really like thinning the lube slightly by applying a thin
film of Remminington Gun Oil over the lube..

#454 53 days ago

I had not lubed it, I thought that was a no-no. Fake news?

#455 53 days ago

I remember an old vendor saying lubing only collects dust (a lazy excuse).
After getting ball bowlers from him, some of the score motor wiper rivots
were worn down to nothing. Riding on the blade itself. After replacing the
wiper's rivots in the mid 90s and having a bowler out on location since then,
there's minimum to no wear. Now of coarse a Ball Count Unit won't get the
wear as a score motor's wiper, but lubing is a huge plus.
That being said, your ball count should return home without the lube, so a little
more return on the spring may be a good idea, but I would definitely also lube (all
step ups). My Sound Stage has been set up maybe 15 years, and outside of waxing,
never had it opened..

You've got a whole league there! Wow

A few more and I can re-theme to the entire American or National league. Perhaps this is my next venture.... haha

If you were closer to N.Y., I think I could use another..
All Mini Baseballs, or were other items in the deal..
I take it that it was a package deal..

I know you weren't talking about my rifle game but thanks for the reminder. In case people didn't realise, my Champion Rifle Range *is* a pinball machine.

So my problem is actually that there is a tiny bit of play between the gear and the wipers on my "ball in play" assembly. The gear returns to zero but the wiper motor has just enough slack to throw it off. Does anyone make parts for this any more or is there a common fix?

Was there supposed to be a washer or spacer in there?

#463 52 days ago

I don't know. The whole stack has the same shape as the shaft, like a rectangle with rounded ends, or a circle with two sides cut off.

Okay, are you saying that the wiper's oval hole has play, or I'm thinking most likely you're saying
that the shaft that the wiper attaches to has play with the gear that it's attached to?

#465 51 days ago

The wipers oval hole has play around the shaft that turns it

#466 51 days ago

Not that it would make a difference, but a metal washer should be over the shaft before
the wiper goes on..
One thing you can try is to epoxy the wiper to that metal washer. Of course you'll
want to make certain that the wiper is lined properly with the washer.
It's strange that slack had worn. That wiper's nylon is pretty thick..

#467 50 days ago

Yeah... the nylon, the bakelite, (?) And steel all have play over the shaft all the way front to back so I don't think the shaft is worn or it would be only in the middle. Nothing big enough to be visible. It doesn't make a difference how tight or loose the nut is or an extra wrap on or off the spring on the gear. Anybody have any of these parts extra? I'm going to try PBR on Monday. Maybe I can find a part number before then so I don't get fussed at. Edit: Looks like "130-518 - backup washer" for the metal one which I don't see anywhere, or the wiper finger ass'y "464-2507"

#468 50 days ago

So the shaft seems to be okay, but the washer and nylons are worn. You feel
another washer and nylon would solve the problem?

#469 50 days ago

That's what I'm hoping, a long with hoping I'll actually be able to find some.

#470 49 days ago

I have C.C. Ball Bowler parts. I think the washer and nylons may match. I'll check tomorrow..

Quoted from Chalkey:

Probably someplace, but for now I hadn't spotted a nylon, but I do have a couple
washers with the oval hole. I tried one on my Sound Stage shaft, and it fits snugly.
If you feel they may be something that you could work with, I'll send them your
way. Just need to know where to send them.. (T)

Is it possible the wipers are simply bent too far making them push too hard on the contact surface.
You want them to make contact but any contact is usually enough for them to function electrically.

Hey crew,
I am looking for a schematic for a Chicago Coin Coney Island shooting gallery. I'm having some issues where the scoring reel won't reset, as well as some problems with the ferris wheel target.
