Quoted from Billc479:

I just picked up a Star Wars and Jurassic Park. Very Excited about them.
SW is missing the entire mechanism to raise and lower the target to the Death Star, so its always open. Does anyone know where I can get the parts to fix this, including brackets?

I am pretty sure I have a death star target assembly that is a little broken but could be made to work with a little love I am sure. You are welcome to it. You will need to get the motor from PBR though unless you have that part.
Shoot me a mail
I also have a shooter handle thats better than nothing ......not very nice looking and several light boards and playfield stuff around as well
Back on topic..
Data east rocks! Stereo sound, all plywood cabinet, 8 inch sub and some great titles!

YUP torpedo alley is a great game too! I got one.

Had it for years. Just can't seem to want to part with it. Something great about it. Its like a system 11 with better sound. Absolute pure pinball fun!

Mine has 555's and 906's . Could be yours was early or late in production. I would not see the value in switching sockets unless one had a huge surplus of bulbs of a certain type or wanted cheaper flashing 455 bulbs in place of 47/44.

ah ha mine has 3 bayonet sockets across the bullwinkle plastic for 44/47 the rest of the gi is 555. The 906's and 89's are the same diameter but the 906's are longer and made of only glass.

easy fix. Just put the next weaker coils in. Works great for me. Also put a clear deflector over the drop or stand up targets close to the flippers and it keeps the ball on the playfield. Must have on LW3 and Simpsons etc...

Chad is awesome. Must have updates for DE games. Turns ok games into awesome pieces. JP alone is an epic update.
Thanks again for your efforts Chad! May Santa be good to you this year.

090-5030-00 is the next lowest flipper coil. BUT I would just add stronger return springs and add a clear plastic above the center targets. Keeps the balls on the playfield.

My Simpsons had tons of air balls and I made the clear plastic for the center targets a little bigger than the plastic by an inch and now no more airballs EVER! Every game with bad airballs off of target banks will benefit from overhanging plastic clear deflectors.
