To update L3 to L9, only CpU rom needed or more?

Quoted from Rensh:

So, thanks to the video I discovered eyes should close. Investigated and found a broken part. Should be a not to difficult fix.Already sourced the part.

Very common and super easy. I did it in 20 min.

While you are there, get your CPU batteries into a remote battery holder. The damage leaking batteries can do is amazing

I know, thnx for the advise. Have seen what it can cause . Usually I replace them with the AA lithium version from energizer. Have them on backorder so should be in there this weekend.

Nice! Each part of Rudy is pretty simple, but together it's complex and really clever.

I am still looking for a set of Ted's or Rudy's eyeballs and the white crank piece to move them right and left..........anyone?

Seems like something someone would be making 3D printed versions of by now.

What's worked best for me is to post a wanted ad on the market of the parts you are looking for. Have been pretty successful doing that.

Question, my “open trap door when flashing” light works in test mode, but this light never activates during gameplay. Game functions perfectly other than this. What is supposed to light this switch light?

In multiball, after scoring the first trap door shot it will close. You have to hit the ramp, with the flashing sign, to reopen the trap door.

Just picked up a very nice Funhouse. Great game, thoroughly enjoying having it home.

That’s a damn neat Funhouse! Great find, not many clean ones in Oz. FH was my first pin and first resto, it’ll never leave, gameplay never gets old, either do the laughs.

Yep agreed, great game. I’d been looking for about 12 months and couldn’t believe my luck when this one popped up.

Thanks, I love the Bally’s of this era. This ones been fully restored. HRP in Geelong did the cabinet for me.

Hi guys, I'm well into restoring my fh cabinet and headbox. I'm trying to even replace damaged labels by making my own. Unfortunately there's one label on top of the head box that has faded and been over sprayed with blue. Impossible to read except for bits. All I can make out is

CAUTION
FOR THE

TIGHTENING BACK BOX

I wondering if anyone can photograph or tell me what the label said? I know it was white with red typeface

Thanks in advance

I just finished restoring my project FH. The mystery mirror scoop really takes a beating, both coming in and hitting the bottom: there's quite a sunken indent at the bottom. There was also duct tape at the top which I assume was to lessen the blows. I cleaned it up and tightened with new screws, but the scoop worked loose after some play. I redid the screw holes and now it's nice and firm. But I'm wondering if it will last the way it gets blasted: the machine is playing pretty fast and strong with flippers and mechs rebuilt.

Do people do anything to dampen the blows to this scoop? I was surprised there's only two screws holding it and am skeptical it will hold over extended time.

You will be fine. Play in a home use vs on location is totally different.

#1424 3 months ago

Yea i've had mine for ~15 years and never been an issue.

That scoop does break eventually - man made bound to fail. Mine did let go. It's not an overly expensive part and if it's dented up like you say it is just buy a new one. It'll last you the length of your ownership and then some. For loose screw holes, a quick fix is to just break off a toothpick flush with the hole and thread the screw back in. Just snug it up and not manhandle it. A less quicker fix is to glue the toothpick and when dry break it off flush and then screw it back in

Finally getting around to shop my fh
There are going to be some paint touch ups needed. For the red , blue, orange, yellow colors, does anyone have a rec brand they used for game? I know vid rec creatix (sp?) but wasn’t sure if someone has found a close match with a specific brand for this one

#1427 3 months ago

I redid the holes with 2-part wood-filler epoxy and then re-drilled them. I still want to deaden the blows it takes though: next time I need to order stuff I'm going to try to find a suitable one of those blue rubbers that are found at the end of ramps.`

For playfield touch-up, fortunately I only needed blue for a little wear at the scoop. At first I had difficulty finding a match as many acrylic blues are too flat. But Delta Creamcoat Select "Riviera" that I got at Hobby Lobby is a close match. Just need to mix in a darker blue to make it a touch darker.

Question for the group, what is a restoration project Funhouse worth? Machine looks to be all there, supposedly boots and works but has not been played in a while. One ramp looks to have a small chunk out of the lip but it isn’t cracked. Missing a pop bumper cap. Very dirty. Has significant playfield wear, would likely need a new one. Boards look ok. Cabinet is so so, probably would end up stripping it and new decals given that the rest of the machine needs work. I have not seen the machine in person, owner has sent me numerous pictures. Would be a 6 hour drive for me each way to go get it.

Ballpark value?

3k easy, maybe more.

Post the pics.

Ok that's a little higher than I thought but still verifies the deal I was working on is a good deal. I was close to pulling the trigger on it but I decided it wasn't the best idea for me to take on another project right now so I passed it on to a friend. He is driving to get the machine today so I'm sure he'll be posting here soon! Another Funhouse saved!

#1431 3 months ago

Wow. What a pricing. Sold my decent working average looking FH just for usd 2300. There is also a fh on sale right one looking as new for Like usd 3500.

Pricing in the US is thus much higher for the FH as in NL

Did you succeed? I didn't hear anything about a runaway pinball strapped to a sled on the Interstate on the evening news.

#1434 3 months ago

Yep! Funhouse is in the ... er.. house...

Been trying to troubleshoot Rudys mouth not working and the trap door won't close, but other than that mostly working.

I just spent $2400 on a re-import, total with shipping. Well worn, but plays pretty well. Had to rebuild a few connectors and remove minor hacks, soon I'll replace the playfield, ramps, plastics, etc. I don't think you will find a beat up working Funhouse for under 2.5K, really for under 3K these days. If you do, pounce on it.

#1436 3 months ago

Does anyone have a parts list for things they bought before doing a playfield swap on Funhouse? I have a reproduction playfield, plastics and ramps. But before I start to put together my own list of posts, targets, screws, etc. I thought I'd check if someone else already did. I have to assume a lot of people have done the playfield swap by this point. Thanks!!

I needed a few posts. I ordered a few of each before I knew what I needed. Get 9 of the screws for the poppers. I could not get any of them out of the playfield to reuse.

#1438 3 months ago

Thanks, yeah I'm planning on replacing most of the screws and top of playfield parts that aren't metal, everything shows a fair amount of wear.

#1439 3 months ago

I am having trouble with the switch for the left Gangway. Its called a roll under switch. Is this the correct mechanism to activate the switch? The wire flap gets stuck up, then doesn't register. Can someone please confirm if this is correct? Thanks

Quoted from zerbam:

someone must have these extra..........

If you're still looking, Action Pinball has the crank listed as "temporarily out of stock", which seems to be different than "discontinued", which is how they list the eyeballs, unfortunately.

I managed to find a crank at Pinball Heaven in the UK, but they are also now listing it as "Available for backorder", so I'm hoping mine was the last one, and not a mistake in inventory.

If I do end up with it, I will be measuring and making a 3D printable version, and I will most definitely make the file available somewhere where everyone can get to it.

Meanwhile, if anyone is sitting on a cache of Rudy Eyeballs, I'd be in for a set as well.

#1441 3 months ago

Does anyone know the correct length or part number for the left plunger? This import one I bought is obviously too short and has an extra long rubber tip mounted on it weirly and still barely hits the ball up to the steps.

So why don't you guys help each others about small parts? Buy the small stuff, and send it in a small envelope vs crazy default overseas starting price by Marco, PSPA etc.

I don't think Australia has any policy in sending small parcels but I have been told that US suppliers are restricted in postal options. Maybe someone can confirm this here.

you can only send paper in a envelope no small parts

parts are a parcel and cost at least $25 postage

Hard to believe, unless it's a local rule. I've got many parts in bubble envelope (Cliffys, plastics), price was about $8.
A shipping price of one starpost from USA starts at $51... No comment.
