Restoring a "Ronscore" Simpsons right now, just finished touching up the playfield.

Almost done with my Simpsons refresh. Touched up and Treasure Cove'd the PF, replaced a whole bunch of stuff. Still need to powder coat or repaint the habitrails and replace some connectors. Can't wait to fire it up!

Never played TSPP so I couldn't say. This is from 1990, TSPP is from 2003, so that one's obviously going to be a deeper game, but I really prefer the look of the DE version.

I don't know if any DE games aside from Simpsons had the cardboard tube mounted next to the speaker in the cabinet, but have any of you ever replaced this? What did you use as a replacement?

While I'm on the subject of speaker/sound issues, I think my potentiometer is shot, the sound goes in and out as I turn it. I see the part # is 123-5000-00, anyone know what the ohms on that unit is? Might as well try to get one at Radio Shack first.

Alternately, has anyone used this for cleaning old pots?

Still looking for a 10k stereo potentiometer for my DE Simpsons, part #123-5000-00.

Damn, is that how that metal flap is supposed to work??!! I have the same one in my Simpsons but it's always been turned 180', sitting UNDER the plastic. Never occurred to me to turn it around. Duh! D'oh!

Indypinhead, is your Bleeding Gums Murphy plastic original or a reprint? Looks like his skin on yours is a solid brown ink, mine is yellow with a black halftone over it. Interesting, I guess there were at least two runs of plastics.

Quoted from transprtr4u:

Might have a chance to obtain a Data East Simpsons.. Anybody have an plastic scans that they would be willing to share? Seemingly a plastic set falls under the unobtainable category !
Would also love to hear some feedback on gameplay in general

DE Simpsons takes a lot of crap when compared to the Stern pin but I prefer its simplicity (not as simple as earlier 80's pins though). Tough to get jackpot as locked balls don't carry over from ball to ball. Flippers are way over-powered, prepare for lots of airballs. What plastic scans do you need?

Still looking for a dual/stereo potentiometer for my Simpsons, if anyone's parting out a DE or has a spare.

Any body might know what game this cab belongs to???

That's Gottlieb's Solar Ride.
