New to hobby
I purchase a HUO GB premium I notice my flipper feel sloppy or better said they dont feel like responsive/crips when I push the flipper buttons is there a way to adjust or do I have to do a flipper rebuild? Any help would be greatly appreciated..

Hard to say remotely, but here's two things to try:

You can look at the gap of the switches at the flipper buttons on the inside of the cabinet. It may just be that you have to press too much before the switches make contact and the flipper responds, making it feel sloppy. That's an easy fix - just adjust the switch closer to the flipper button end by bending it slightly.

Another thing to check is the coil stops. Take off the coil stops and see if they're mushed that's one of the first things that goes with heavy play and will let you know if you should do a full rebuild of the flippers.

Anyone had any of their GB node boards blow?

Ok thank you..I'll check it out, is there any instructions how to do a flipper rebuild on GB I case I need to? I own a monster bash remake and the flippers feel really crisp and responsive.

Yes, my node 8 I think, in the center of the playfield blow. Had a ball in the shooter lane, left the pin for 20 minutes, returned and the board was blown. So without any active play. A bit strange.

As long as you do the two service bulletin updates they're pretty stable.

You can just get a kit from Marco that has all the parts you need for both sides:

https://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/SFLKIT

It's pretty self-explanatory. Take one side apart and use the flipper on the other side that's still assembled for reference.

Try adjusting the flipper switches first, though. Much cheaper solution.

Wow - wasn't even familiar with the service bulletins - going to check into that -

Separate issue - has anyone reported a bug where the machine acts like a ball was drained when going into the big ramp/into the right bucket for eject? It seems like it went into an area under the table, and never actually made it into the bucket. I was playing and hit the ramp, it triggered the score count/bonus review, and started the next ball. Then when the finished the last ball, it moved the ball into the bucket and ejected (like a standard ball search post game over)

wierd.. running the modified ver 1.13 w/custom music/audio.

Hmm I’m not so sure about that. At least 5 machines (GOTG, GB x 2, BM66 x 2) I know off all have the service updates and a mix of 8, 9 and 10 boards, so not so sure on the service update making them stable....

Must be pretty rare or there'd be a lot more outcry here. There are quite a few spike out on the route I help with and none have blown node boards.

My GB Prem has been on route for 2+ years. I have done the S/B and have not had one problem with Node boards.

Dang...my Airball protector broke! Thing was working great..but it's just a piece of plastic...was having a great game too...

as far as I can tell the original seller is out of stock. **UPDATE vendor indicated they will have in stock next week**

Can anyone recommend a replacement or current best method to address the left lane airballs?

Thanks!

Does swinks still sell his air ball mod? I have it on my game, works great and no big plastic shield to look at.

yes these will always be available Shapeways operates, check out the link brandonx76

https://www.shapeways.com/product/GRBNG4DQK/stern-target-bracket-v2-5deg2mm?optionId=63971960&li=marketplace

people have also been using on a few targets on Munsters with success as well.

#4265 9 days ago

Wow swinks, that's pretty cool...i'm a little confused on the installation although it will probably make sense as I install..do you happen to have a video showing the install?

Also, I see you have different colors etc, but is this part even visible on the playfield?

Thanks,

sorry no video, did you check out the 7-8 photos on that strip as the others show underneath the playfield.

basically the bracket replaces the existing but raises the target 2mm and tilts it forward 5 degrees, it will make sense when you lift the playfield and dis-assemble and then re-assemble the target with the new bracket.

as for different colours, just different metal finish options, some people want them to look like there other brackets but the cheapest is fine and no it isn't visible from the top

#4267 9 days ago

ok cool, ordering right away. It's time to try these out. Thanks for referrals and followup all!

#4268 9 days ago

If you need some strong protectors made from pet-g instead of acrylic (that typically break) - let me know!

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/sale-ghostbusters-airball-air-ball-right-orbit-protectors-2

And they cut out 100% of airballs!

Plus you can mount toys - figures on them like the Ecto car. And no need to lift your playfield and mess with brackets.

Forget the plastic covers and just get two of the swinks target brackets he sells on shapeways. Work great to cut airballs by like 90% and no big plastic hanging over your playfield.
