Quoted from BJM-Maxx:
Is there a guide for System 11 playfield removal? I have pulled many playfields on early Bally SS machines, but not on a System 11 before. At first glance it looks like there are 20+ connectors to remove all over the back box. It looks like I should separate the cabinet harnesses from the playfield ones, the whole mess is tie wrapped together and I would rather leave things connected that can stay that way.
Remove as many wire ties as necessary to separate the harnesses to make the job easier, but it shouldn't be super necessary unless someone way over did it.
Label the connectors with a sharpie for easy reassembly.
Disconnect the playfied ones. Stuff them into the cabinet.
Some wires go to the power harness, not the playfield.
Put the game on the ground (with legs off) to make it easier to remove the playfield.
You wont have to lift it as high.
