Quoted from Magadovski:

Ok tanks for the tip just order this converter
I found a Quitos fan With about 100cfm 1000rpm, or that to weak?

No, you need an AC to DC converter, not DC to DC.

Then since the DC will likely be very high, you need to be able to reduce the DC voltage:

Here's the fan I used:

You obviously need the standard SEGA / Stern 3 pin connector (I don't remember if it's male or female coming out of the backbox)
That's just power, you'll still need the bracket to mount the new DC fan. Here's the STL files to 3d print one:

Hi all. Just joined the club (refurb needed) and waiting for it to arrive to do a proper assessment. Does anyone know where i can buy a playfield decal set including tornado? I see the only place doing plastic sets is out of germany. Cheers. Steve

Hi again, I am planning to do some artwork repair around the spin plate. Does anyone already have or would be willing to take a high resolution picture of that area to act as a decal of sorts between clear coats? Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi guys, I am looking at running a high power fan using a solid state relay and different power supply for the fan. From experience, can anyone confirm the output on J8-6 (brown/green) for Twister is 20V DC to drive the motor relay board? I had assumed AC was used. I have only ever worked on older Data Easts.

Has anyone put a plug and play shaker motor in their Twister? Seems like it would be a great upgrade for the theme but wondering if over time the vibration may cause wear to the spinner disc/motor/gear assembly.

Hi all, if anyone has a Twister and get the time could you please confirm if this is an original part or a mod? Looks like a spring wire added to a post to stop a ball being caught/resting between a post and a pop bumper? Thanks.

Cheers, thanks for letting me know. Seems odd as the design seems to lend itself to scratching the play field!

Hi all, another question if anyone can answer. Did Sega make there Super VUK assemblies out of galvanised sheet metal? Looks well made but out of place from all of the other's. Thanks in advance for any info.

Can someone post a picture of under the magna disc my disc is acting up I think either the motor is going out or there is too much movement of the gear post.

I have mine out at the moment. Looks like the shaft has worn through the casing on yours?

Hey gang — are there any videos or tips on adjusting the spinning disc? Mine raises and lowers when it’s spinning and I assume it shouldn’t be doing that. Thanks much

#367 7 days ago

It could be a slipping retaining screw for the plate or freeplay/slack in the motor shaft assembly due to wear over the years. One is an easy fix, not sure what can be done with the freeplay if that is the issue.

I'm missing the 8x32 screw I have to pick one up today that might be my issue.

#369 7 days ago

Hi All, hoping anyone out there can confirm if there running the 520-5137-00 I/O Power Driver board? I am bringing a scrapheap unit back to life and not sure if this board is compatible? The manual states the Twister uses 520-5137-01 not the 00. Appreciate any confirmation their Twister is running the older 00. Thanks.
