Hey guys (and gals),

Is there a setting to adjust coil strength? Mine seriously fire's a ball into the shooter lane from the ball trough. Apologies if I missed it, don't see it mentioned in the manual.

If not, I'm going to have to see if the solenoid coil is the right one.

Edit: Post 1859 mentions coil strength...looks like setting 43 in Standard Adjustments.

So a follow up question: Is that for all coils then?

Just got mine yesterday. Documented HUO, very low plays. Looks absolutely pristine.

Just installed pinshakers shaker motor - highly recommend - nothing like hitting the ship and having the game shake

Not feeling it at all, but who cares as long as you like it.

Is there a thread or post on how to do this. Sounds like a nice addition!

Is this getting better. Removed Red from top and bottom and replaced with black trim. Looking more like modern Stern game (WTD, GoT. AS, ect...)

I got the shaker about 3 years ago. Working on the flasher of the ship. Very cool effect on the kraken, extra ball, etc.

Installed the air ball protector and took out ship(sneeze) guard as well. This has to be one of Stern’s best. Very underrated.

looks good, where did you get alt trans?

It is a great game. I added the pinshaker shaker motor a couple weeks ago - highly recommend.

Also installed the Pinshaker shaker motor on my POTC. All I can say is. I know it doesn't change anything to game play but makes it a whole different game. Nothing more satisfying then hitting the ship and having the shaker go off.

I removed the ship from my POTC yesterday in order to install the cannon led mod. Initially I connected to the wrong flasher (back middle) but I corrected my mistake and connected to the ship flasher. I also have a shaker motor which runs off the ship flasher and the spinning disk flasher. This worked fine both before and after the cannon mod. After reinstalling the ship I had several problems. Initially the sails on all the ships would drop after 1 hit, (sinking the ship took the correct number of hits) and the spinner would light the timer after 1 or 2 lights lit. After several plays the sails problem seemed to correct itself, but now the spinning disk is completed without entering this part of the playfield. Points are now continuously scored without hitting anything. Looking at the active switch menu does not indicate any wrong switches closed. Any suggestions on where I start looking to correct this problem?

Remove and reinstall the connectors on the opto board. I had a problem with it awarding hits to the ship after connecting shaker. Once I did this it cleared it right up. Might not be it but worth a try.

Thank you for your suggestion. My problem ended up being that the Tortega exit opto was blocked alligator clip that I used to install an extra green light several years ago. It must have moved due to all of the raising and lowering of the playfield.

A suggestion when working under the playfield; I use Pinball Universe Protectors to protect the inside side art during the many times I raise and lower the playfield. I found it interesting that Stern uses similar protectors when assembling and testing games.

I think alt trans was from Pugztoyz on eBay.....it’s been 5 yrs or so since I bought it.
