Quoted from pacman11:

Aw man thanks, that's the problem my metal piece broke off against the wall.. Do you know where I can buy a new one at? Thanks!

AH HA! Mystery solved....That will be $100 for my detective fee. Sorry I don't know where to get that piece, do you have a manual. I wonder if that's the problem with karmalords game too?

#502 4 years ago

Will have a look when I get a chance. Very well could be the problem on mine as well.

#503 4 years ago

For all of you that were wondering about the Starship Fantasy ramps, they are awesome.. Super thick plastic and super clear and great looking decals… When they get their next batch in, if you need them, buy them…

Thanks, I should have gotten them when I had the chance. They should make a smiley face with it blowing it's brains out.

I have joined the club. Having trouble with my right outlane flasher lamp. Also, flipping the flippers causes the left outlane flasher lamp to fire. Some short or something... it is driving me mad trying to troubleshoot. Love this machine though. Newest mods are lights under the shooter (violet purple) and trying to put lights in the upper left playfield (it is way too dark up there) and behind the monster slide in the back. LED upgrade almost done. What a difference LED's make! Thanks for this forum!

I may have posted this before, not sure but wanted to share. I have had good success using LED black light strips on Lexan plates in Elvira. They are 12 volt and will work on the flasher circuits. I put one under the Boogie men that flashes when they move and one under the skull that flashes when the light under the skull flashes.

Here is what they look like.

#509 4 years ago

Looks nice!
Illumination is one aspect the table could use more of even after installing leds, and mods such as this surely will help!

Just placed a pre-order with CPR for a new playfield

#511 4 years ago
Quoted from v8racefan:

Nice... Put mine in a few weeks back. Can't wait to get it...

#512 4 years ago

I put in my playfield pre-order too. I may break down and restore it before they get around to actually doing it. I have all new plastic already and I ordered new ramps this week. My playfield really isn't that bad but it will bug me if I don't fix it before too long.

#514 4 years ago

I was on the backorder list when James sold to Starship Fantasy. Larry@Starship Fantasy sent me an email and said they found some ramps for me, so I bought them. Not sure if they have any more or not. They may have started up making them again. That would be cool.

I really only need the long one (I have one vertical crack near the top), but bought the whole set because that is the only way they sell them.

I got a set of those ramps.... You won't be disappointed, they are great!!! Have to install the slide ramp and I will have my Elvira back up and running.. I will be doing that this evening so I will post some pictures then. This project so far has included new plastics, T-molding and ramps. I also LEDed the machine and did a shop job with new rubbers. When I get the new playfield I am going to also put new decals on the cabinet and then it should be flawless...

#518 4 years ago

Anyone ever switch out the shooter rod spring for one with less power? Just seems like there is a ton of power for a game that really doesn't need that much to get the ball to the in lanes..

Quoted from paulywalnuts23:

I did that on mine. When I got mine the ball gate was missing because with a full pull the ball would slam back and forth between the gates above the "BAT" lights.

Not sure which spring I have in there now, but with a full pull, it will bounce back off the second gate but not so hard that it feels like you are going to tear something up.

#520 4 years ago

Yeah right now I am just doing like a quarter pull and it gets up there will plenty of power… I am going to look into finding a less stiff spring...

#521 4 years ago

Get this kit from Marco $4.95. You can try a couple different tensions and see what works the best.

#523 4 years ago

Picked up a nice, dirty Eatpm last week. Started a full shop job on it. Looks to be in great condition so far. Some broken switches, bad opto, etc. Nothing major. It does have pretty good damage on the side rails from a prior bad pack/move job. Does anybody have an extra set they want to sell? Can't seem to find any vendors with them in stock. Can't wait to finish her up and PLAY!

Mike

#524 4 years ago

Hey Mike,Welcome to the club!

These rails are hard to find indeed. I had a few dents in mine and went looking,but had no luck either.
I ended up reversing them so the dents were toward the back instead of the more noticeable front.

Will let you know if I spot any in my journeys.

I have gotten rails from Doug Huse of LetsPlayPinball.com when no one else had them. You can also check with Mike Chestnut of http://horsepowerunlimited.net/. Mike mostly does plating, but sometimes he takes trades and has used rails OR you may decide to go chrome. It ain't cheap but he does amazing plating work...

#526 4 years ago

Thanks for the info Karmalord and BadBrad97. I'll just have to wait and keep my eyes open like everyone else. Karmalord, was reversing them worth the work? Never though of that...

Mike

#527 4 years ago

Since the dings on mine were up front near the flippers it worked pretty well.
You will have to see if it will make a difference on yours depending on where your dents are located.
Just don't attempt to take out the dents yourself as it will usually just make it worse.
I believe there is a torx screw on the end of each rail,so be prepared for those when removing them.

There are guidelines listed on the Pinside forums for removing rails so you don't ruin your decals if you've never done this before. Not too hard really.

I had dented side rails on my EATPM. Just recently solved the issue with a workaround. I wrote up the problem of not having the right sized rails readily available and my work-around solution.

This has to be one of the coolest mods yet! Good job, and a great location to put it!
Curious as to what this kit costs for all who can't resist?

Yes it does look and work great and not very much trouble to put on and look factory. There's even a hole in the pf under the right ramp in front to fish the wires through so the only wires you notice (not very much I might add) are running from the skulls on top of the plastic to behind the organ player plastic and down through the hole in the plastic for the ramp hex support then over to the pf hole under the ramp. To fish the wires through that hole I used a fairly stiff piece of wire and poked it up from under the pf then taped the 3 skull wires to it and pulled the wire with the 3 attached back through the hole from the underside. Worked like a charm.

PM Pinballdoctor1 and as him how much, he's in Belgium so shipping aint cheap but this mod is sooooo worth it. Tell him I sent you....I don't make anything on the sale, just helping to get a cool mod out there and help a fine Pinsider.

#543 4 years ago

The skulls look like the light up skulls in the auto department at Wal-Mart. Might want to check there first.
