Quoted from harryhoudini:
I sliced a line in my screw and got it out (and reused it.. up top). I just had to replace one of the motors... didn't see an issue with the door shafts, what would happen to those? Same with the allen screws.. came out fine and doesn't seem to be a need to replace them.
And why so many motors?!
pinballgoddess at work here, its her favorite game.
My game gets a lot of play. 10k+ plays as of this week. Home use only! Factory settings with a liberal ball save, extra balls instead of replays...
A lot of the games are 10 ball games from what the audits show.
I change the balls every 350 plays and wax the playfield, replace any shredded rubber.
Audits show over a million flips per flipper, flippers completely rebuilt 4 times now, 2nd glinda target,, grease monkey and witch threaded rods etc...
Just regular maintenance.
One odd repair was a screw head popped off on a right castle door one day, but it came out with my little pliers and I didnt have to pull the playfield out lol.
This being said, The game looks like new and plays like new! JJP games are built like tanks.
The key is in the maintenance, And like Vid1900 constantly says: WAX the playfield regularly, It will last forever.
