Quoted from desertT1:

The rubber on my upper flipper is slowly getting cut by the metal ball guide. It’s aligned as it seemingly should be, and might even be a touch low. Is this normal?

Coil stops and or plungers are wearing out. Or the incorrect coil stops were installed.

Absolutely, I assumed that he had installed new parts. Could also need new flipper bushing. Check that your flipper bushing is mounted solid as well, no loose screws.

#2753 77 days ago

I have 2 High Speeds and I did rebuild kits on one of them, but can't remember which one. I'm guessing at this point that this game is not the one I had done.

Yes sir, this can also be a very big possibility.

Ah, fair point. I did a full rebuild, plus I have Titans on my machine which might be less susceptible to this issue.

Quoted from cjchand:

Looking at mine, I definitely see a groove in the rubber at that spot, but it’s just a dent. No cut.

Guess that’s a proof point of the durability of the Titans

Agreed. I had this issue on mine and it was thanks to an incorrect length coil stop put on at some point.

YUP! The flipper snaps up and slightly kisses the top rail... Has to due with the
plastic link elongating over the many flips...

And other factors as above.

Quick Note:

If you are interested in purchasing a new playfield from Classic Playfields for your High Speed or know someone that wants one. CPR is showing only 3 left on their web page!

[EDIT] --- 1 Left!

Or alternatively, there's a few new - fixed - Hardtops available: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/prototyping-a-hardtop-high-speed/page/7#post-5192271

[EDIT] I originally said coin door pic. what I really need is a pic of the front cabinet so I can print the "HIGH SPEED" and trace it for a stencil it so I can paint the front cabinet.

Need a favor from my High Speed community. My High Speed front cabinet is very weathered and I need to do a cabinet paint job. The sides are in decent shape but the front needs serious help.

If I could get one of you to take a high res picture straight on of the front CABINET so I can create a stencil I would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Here is an example of my cabinet.

you can email it to me at 757drivr@gmail(DOT)com

A friend was playing my HS on location and said when he rolled over a lit special it tilted on him. I don’t even know how to light special, let alone test why this specific situation might have happened.

Special is lit when you "run the red light" a 2nd time.

Was it the left or right?

Hey monkfe, is that a CPR play field? I ordered one and waiting impatiently for it to arrive.

#2769 72 days ago

The CPR playfields came too late for me.
I will be putting the final clearcoat on my playfield Sunday......

Wow - it looks that bad and it is only the front?

Just get decals instead of a stencil and just redo the whole thing. That looks tough. I don’t have art for you since I am in a mod restore myself.

I put decals on my cabinet. I know it is not original but it is easier and in my opinion looks better.

Yea, the sides are remarkably in good shape thus why I just want to paint the front and leave the sides as is. Should be easy to paint the front. just need a good pic. Actually looking at the side of my cabinet I might be able to snap a photo of the HIGH SPEED and scale it to correct size in photoshop then make a stencil.

The Pinball Pimp folks sold me just the backbox stencils. Might wanna see if they will sell you just the front.

I can take a pic of mine if you don't need everything taken off. I only have the camera from my samsung s9+ , will that work?

That would be perfect. The red and yellow square is easy to duplicate. I need a pic that shows the HIGH SPEED graphics. Thanks

Was he on a single ball? What kind of tilt was it?

#2779 71 days ago
Quoted from Pin-Pilot:

I probably would have bought one anyway.
I believe the touch-up/clear coat labor is probably equal to the playfield swap labor depending on how worn the playfield actually is.

Nice to start fresh with new PF but either way there are challenges.

#2782 71 days ago

I absolutely agree.
Even the best restoration will have flaws and areas that will look "used" if you look closely enough.

Man, I was wondering how my Gmail knew your name when I was putting in the address and just figured it out. I sent you pool sharks pics a while back for that diverter. I was so mad at myself from that. I ended up breaking a plastic getting to that game and those are impossible to find! Lol. Did you get a diverter made for that?

Oh, NO. Sorry to hear that. Yes, I was able to get my diverter working. Had to make a piece from scratch then order a dozen plastic diverter pieces from a 3D printer company. Would have cost the same had I ordered 1 or 12. Has been working great since.

Sorry about the broken plastic and thanks for the help. Again.

I need some pictures (and maybe some parts) for the locking portion of the coin door. My coin door did not have a lock on it when I bought it. I bought an 7/8 that Marco's recommenced and said that would fit. After install of the lock, the door will not securely close and hangs opens about a 1/4. Any picture (parts) or suggestions would be great.

My door does that as well. There are a couple ways to fix this. I just bent an angle in the lock arm and that took out the slop. you can also find a pre bent lock arm like the one in the pic. This pre bent arm example is technically bent the wrong way, the dimple should match up with the door frame and this one would make more slack than less if installed correctly. You could install it flipped if desired.

I save any of the cam lock arms when I pull locks from games in case I need one with a bend or an extra long one, etc.

Does anyone know what is going on with CPR atm, I ordered a new playfield and other parts a few weeks ago and haven't received it yet, with my previous orders i received parts from them with in a week, I have emailed them 3 times asking if the items have been shipped or for a tracking number and haven't had a single reply.
cheers

Go to your paypal puchase, if your products are shipped, the tracking number will be listed

#2792 61 days ago

I inquired also as I have a Playfield on order for High Speed. They were caught off guard by the demand of the high speed playfield. It seems they put the cart in front of the horse. Did not plan on so many orders along with orders still being accepted even though they did not have any more play fields.

Not sure I believe 100% of what they are claiming but they did say the play fields should ship next week. They told me that september 4th as well soooo......

Anyone replace their factory speaker with two speakers?...I reached out to pinsound...said they are working on the early system 11 games and this game specifically, but "a work in progress "...my machine was down so I was filling my down time with replacing them...I removed the fabric and speaker screen, which pretty much destroys it as the glue sticks to it pretty good, I found replacement screen from pinball life. Two 4x6 speakers from Amazon some #8 T nuts...found new fabric on ebay...... Don't forget your thin blue line

Curious on whether I makes much of an improvement in the sound. I replaced the stock speaker with more modern tech and it didn’t make much of a difference. Granted, it wasn’t a co-ax speaker, but expected a bit more of an improvement over a the stock paper cone POS

I need to do this as well. My speaker board needs replacing along with the faded fabric cover. Looks nice!

#2796 57 days ago

HS in yellow, I missed the back channel for the glass though. That’ll get taken care of

Where? I can't seem to find it.

#2799 56 days ago

Maybe pics don’t do it justice. I don’t think they do, better in person. It blends with the cab yellow, the apron and card borders and the yellow back glass lines on the road. Still better than dull scratched silver.
