Who's gonna make a proper BG for Cheetah?

Quoted from mof:

BG = back glass ? If so, then B G Resto.

I meant to ask -- who's gonna make a proper alternate?

And what is a proper alternate?

Would an owner mind posting some photos of their wiring pinouts? I'm starting to get things going on my scratch build and the original playfield harness I got is decently hacked up. Of course SEI's schematics have their flaws too, so even just starting to re-pin the harness I've had a few headscratchers.

For example, the schematics say the "ball kicker" coil uses a red-white wire, but my connector seems to be pinned with a white-black. Scouring through photos, it looks like TractorDoc's may also have a white-black coil return wire?

I think slochar has mentioned wanting to clean up these manuals. Does anyone have a list of errors for Cheetah?

And just an example of what needs to be cleaned up...

Stern substituted wire. On my Big Game 4 wires were subbed. Purple/black was replaced by brown/black, for example. I figure the production line ran out of pur/bulk and was not going to shut down the line. I’m guessing this is what you are dealing with.

It will be 2-3 days before I can get time, but I can pull my Cheetah harness out and take some pics of the connectors for you

If your blk/wht wire traces back to the correct pin on your connector, then the wire was substituted

In the end, your key is what color of wire is on the connector and that is what you go with.

I am assuming your blk/wht wire traces back to the connector pin at A3-J2-15. Is this correct?

Currently I’m only making best judgments on where the connector > wires are going. I haven’t started laying out the pf yet.

Can i get a playfield picture from this vantage point from someone’s completed game? I need it to do a minitorial on the games rules, and mine is not complete yet. Haha.

Just picked up a nice Cheetah! Not sure if I'll keep it or sell it, I want to play it for a while & make it play/sound/look as good as possible. Anything I should do? I have black cabinet. I see there are alternate sound roms that I might try, but is there any alternate or improved roms for the game code?

As promised, here are some pics of my Cheetah play field harness.

It stretches out to 9 feet long.

Here are the board connectors.

IMG_1768 (resized).jpg

IMG_1775 (resized).jpg

I have wiring for 3 connectors on the SDU. I am missing the connectors for two right hand side pins.

IMG_1772 (resized).jpg

I have wiring for the two top connectors for the MPU.

IMG_1771 (resized).jpg

And I have wiring for 3 connectors on the LDA.

The cabinet harness will take up one set of pins on the MPU. But I don't know where my other connectors are at. I bought a populated Cheetah play field off of Ebay. And this is all I can recall of pulling wire from the play field. I'll have to headache out the missing wire connectors when the time comes ( since I was so new when I bought this play field, I may have put part of the harness into my grab bag of wire).

I can get you pics of the connectors that I have. Tell me what you need to see pics of. I will oblige.

Thanks cottonm4 -- I look forward to you getting that project off the ground too. We may be ships in the night on our current projects as after I do Cheetah, I'm going to do Nine Ball. I think I have the connectors figured out (at least theoretically until I get to laying it out on the playfield, which likely won't happen until December because of a long vacation to Australia coming up in about 10 days!

Does anyone know if there are roms that provide both the prototype sounds, as well as the rules with 1 bonus shot per ball?

What do y'all think? Can the Cheetah gal be considered a Gypsy?

I don't think so.

I don't think so.

Upon further inspection, Africa (where most of the Cheetahs are) is one of the largest concentrations of the Romani outside of Europe. African Gypsies aren't so uncommon to this day.
