Quoted from Ricbec:

Anyone got an airball deflector they would be willing to part with?
I'd really like to not have the sneezeguard and the fella who makes these can't find them at present....
Any luck?

Spinner should make a noise, i think... about deflector, i removed my large plastic shield on big plastic ramp, i never had any stuck ball on playfield with air deflector plastic.

Quoted from Ricbec:

Another question
The spinner on my machine makes a scraping sort of noise when it is spinning..... I've always thought it was part of its design.....but I'm second guessing now
Should it be making a metal on metal scraping noise as it spins?

I assume you are talking about tortuga. Depending on the date your machine was made this service bulletin may be applicable.

I had to add oil to mine. I've also used this stuff on these types of motors and helps with lots of noises.

Awesome looking pins guys! Figure I jump in here to see if anyone has changed out to an alternate translite. I’m ready for a change as this has been in my collection since NIB. Any pics that would be great or source for one. Thought I saw one with a pirate at the wheel. Thanks!

Going through some switch tests.....

For some reason it's showing all coin switches out of service....but I'm not to concerned about that

What does interest me is its showing left bumper out of service.....shows right bumper in service......

I can't find a switch that activated either a left or right bumper.....what should I be looking for in regards to left and right bumper?

First guess would be slingshots, second guess pop bumpers.

Check in Switch Test.
