Thanks so much guys. Really appreciate your thoughts. Its been a crazy weekend for me but i did just respond on that thread. Wont get into all the details here but Gizmo is home resting comfortably . Pain meds are really helping. Dont know how long we are going to have him but every day more will be a blessing.

#6854 3 years ago

I hope the pain meds are working well enough. Is he moving around at all?

#6855 3 years ago

My thoughts are with you, Gizmo, and your family. Your post touched me. Hoping for the best. My dog Winston, a mini sproodle, is a big part of our family. I can't imagine what it will be like when it's his time to leave us.

Hey guys, I’m selling a few mods I took off my HS2. I’ve got the Donut Heaven mod and the small lighted police car, both by Mezel Mods. I’m asking $50 for both of them, plus $5 for shipping in the continental U.S. They both work fine, just decided to take my pin back to stock. If you check the Mezel Mods website the Donut Heaven costs $60 and the lighted police car costs $50, so this is a deal.

Who is on the list for a repro playfield? Anyone heard from Peter yet ? Im assuming they should be shipping soon.

I have one coming as well. Haven't heard any updates from Peter.

#6861 3 years ago

I have one coming too. The last I heard on 7 Oct, was that they were in the paint shop getting finished clear. So stands to reason that we are at least a month out...

Welcome @STDMinSTL I see you also have a BSD. I had a chance to get one of those, but passed and found Getaway instead.

Hey guys, I finally got my project Get Away completed! This was a complete restoration and I also got almost every mods out there for it. Thanks again to Mr_Tantrum for some of his custom stickers and Pin sound contribution. This was one crazy project! Even managed to get an invisiglass for it.

Your getaway kicks ass!!! Nice job!!

#6875 3 years ago

Hey, Speeders. Seems like dust has been collecting on the Lambo, so I thought I'd try and get get things going and burn the carbon out of the carburetor. Let's go!

On a game this morning, I noticed that the lock ramp is staying up all the time now. I hear and see that it seems to be trying to go down when conditions are met to bring it down; it seems to try and then stay up. It states there is an Up/Down Ramp Error. That's all I have for right now. I will look at a switch test to see if I have a switch problem. Was working great up until now. Any help on what switch to look for, if you know off the top of your head. Otherwise I'll dig through the manual. I will do a T.14 ramp test as well. Suggestions on where to start appreciated. I haven't had to use a soldering iron on this for a long time.

I don't know if this is similar to your situation or not, but here was my past experience with ramp issues:

Switch test is easy so start there but sounds to me like you'll want to have a look at the mechanism and see what's going on. There are videos if you aren't sure what you are looking at.

My pf is out right now if you need a pic.

#6878 3 years ago

Thanks for the replys. I'll start looking into it tonight. I hope this is a simple one. I want to have it working during the Turkey Day break.

I think you mean carbon off the valves. If you have carbon in the carburetor you've got BIG problems.

PS: I know there are a couple of restorations going on, would love to see updates on them.

I'm still waiting for my new playfield. It will be the last thing I need to put my Getaway over the top. Hoping to get it any day now.

Don't put it in right away, I didn't put my new BOP pf in right away, it was perfect when I got it, took it out of the box 6 months later and almost all the inserts had a sunken clear ring around them. Peter said there was nothing he could do about it so there's another $600-$800 to have it recleared.

Are you serious ? Thats not making me feel very good. Wonder if anyone else has had these issues?

#6888 3 years ago

On my ramp issue. There appears to be an air gap. The thinner purple is not connected. Solder that back I should be good, right?

#6889 3 years ago

Yep, pretty much certain that should be your issue. Got to love it when a fix is simple ! Post your results.

#6890 3 years ago

It’s fixed for now. Couldn’t find any solder so had to get a drop from a tinned wire laying around. Got enough on for now until I pick up a solder wick and more solder to do it right. Damn thing was tricking me though. After the fix I turn it on with the playfield up and not only did I get the up/down ramp error, but I also got a shifter error. Something told me to ignore it and just try a game. I ran it through the gears with the glass off, ball in hand, until a lock was set and it went down the way it’s supposed to. Finished that game. Turned it off and back on, and both the ramp and shifter errors cleared. Man, I get schooled every time I have to work on this thing.

Funny. That reminds me I have a diverter error everytime i go into test but it works perfectly every time. So ignoring it seems like the right move sometimes.

Yup, that's how we learn, most errors will not clear until the switch, coil... are triggered. Good work.

#6893 3 years ago

Once again, thanks to the Speeders here that helped me through this "under the hood" repair!
EDIT: I caught myself this time. It's a rear engine, so it's an "under the trunk" repair, doofus!

#6894 3 years ago

Actually, I believe the trunk is the space in the front of the car under what is still called the hood.

The engine cover is a deck or engine lid, I believe.

I don't own a rear engine car, but these are the terms I have heard.

No But all the new parts are sitting next to it on my workbench. I do get Thursday and Friday off so I'm thinking real soon, but still don't know when I will get to your house.
