So here's a problem I've never had... My Caveman has basically ZERO slope on the playfield even with the rear 3 inch leg levellers raised all the way up and the front leg levels lowered all the way down. The legs I got are definitely not the originals that came with the machine and I'm wondering if anyone could tell me if this machine is supposed to have longer legs in the back than in the front (similar to the oddball Bally 6803 game cabinets).

Or maybe my house is just crooked... Thanks to anyone who could measure for me!

Hi Pinwizkid,
Front legs are 27", back legs are 31". So they are different.
Should make it a LOT more fun once you get the correct length legs on there!

BTW, still love Caveman. Play it every day and I have 25 pins. One of my favs that just doesn't get old..too me anyway..
I've owned it for over two years also. My HiScore is 1,936,000.

Thanks for the response! That makes a lot of sense. I had to put the machine up on 3 inch bed risers for the time being.

Well, the bed risers was a good temporary idea.
I just beat my old hi score last night with a 2,206,000! This is set to a 5 Ball Game.
