Congrats! I love mine and play it almost daily. I joined the Flash club late last year. In any event, for the flipper upgrade that Vid covered.. post 140... https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/vids-guide-to-upgradingrebuilding-flippers/page/3

I am not sure if it is common, but it is done. I just rebuilt my flippers in the original style and I am super happy with the play... post 294 - REBUILDING 1967-1979 FLIPPERS
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/vids-guide-to-upgradingrebuilding-flippers/page/6

Honestly, one of the biggest changes to play was when I changed the inner and outer shooter springs... that turned it into a skill shot as now plunging all the way results in the ball not going through any of the top lane guides to score points and bonus, but rather following through the loop (since there is purposely no gate up there) and right back at you.

As for flipper bands - mine are red and I love them that way. In terms of the post colors, I prefer (and have) the blue (with blue #47 incandescent nearby them) .. this post has an interesting theory...post #35

Hey y’all,

Got a Williams Flash with a new Rottendog MPU, and Pinscore installed.

I can’t get to the settings, or start a game. The Auto-Up and advance switches don’t seem to do anything. Turning the game off and on over and over will make the credit # keep going up...and then pressing Start will drop the #, one by one, along with a sound...but that’s it.

Below is a link to a video of what’s going on. Any help greatly appreciated!

Responding to my own topic, ha.

I was able to change things a little—now, I can get the game going, and start a game, but I still can't seem to access the diagnostics?

Anyone have experience with Rottendog MPU327s? It didn't really come with a manual describing if there are unique ways that I'm supposed to interface with it, and following the instructions in the FLASH manual aren't yielding any results. It's like the switches on the inside of the coin door do absolutely nothing.

I'm going to try to trace the wires and make sure everything's connected in the right way, but if anyone has any ideas, they're appreciated!

...after this, there are a LOT of things to get fixed up on this guy, hoooooooboy...but amazingly, most of the GI and switches seem to be working!!!

Well, here is my first pinball I got from a friend for $400. He picked it up to do a resto on it but didnt have the time. It does have issues. Only the lights come on and nothing else. So I will be doing the resto. I love it so I plan on making it bullet proof. My 1st step will be the power supply and go from there I guess
