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