About the helicopter plastics.............................
Were they factory installed?
Does anyone use them now?
Does everyone have extras?

#209 6 years ago

I have one installed, and two extras. Just wondering what the story is with these.

Quoted from Craig:

I've been meaning for some time to post pics of my High Speed,

Mine looks that nice. Oh wait, no it doesn't. Not even close. Yours is sweet!
Love the blue and red wireforms.

Quoted from tonycip:

Hi I was wondering if any one found a source for the metal spacers that are on the plastics, or a substitute? and also a source for the screws that go through the red posts. the ones that have threads on both ends?

A picture of the parts you are looking for might help.
Post screws might be these:

But be careful, there are different sizes/lengths/threads.

Quoted from mof:

Now that I have a CPR PF installed, this thing plays so freakin' accurately. My scores are going way up...
What are some good ways to increase the difficulty of the game?
I already moved the two right posts wide right, and that doesn't seem to be impacting the game play much.

Well, you could swap your CPR playfield for my crappy original.
Assume you have tried changing the difficulty adjustments.
Have you tried increasing the slope?

Wish I was a good enough player to have your concerns.

Quoted from mof:

o restoration is complete without a movie as proof of the fun achieved.

Nice! Spotlights on the slings look good.
I thought you were "Moff" with a soft "o", heard you pronounce it "Mofe" with a hard "o". Learn something new every day.

Quoted from Lescell:

Is it ok to post "WTB parts" in here?

Congrats on the purchase!
Sure, looking for parts here is fine.
But you'll probably get a better response with a separate WTB thread of your own.

Quoted from amkoepfer:

when does the topper go off? Is it when the police start chasing you?

Welcome to the club, and correct. Topper light should run with multiball. Should also go off once in a while during attract, if you have that option turned on.

Quoted from CharlieFriday:

would love some opinions on what if anything I should do to the Playfield.

I'd leave the mylar, clean it and play away.
My worry would be paint loss while pulling the mylar. Your level of courage may vary.

Quoted from HS1STPIN:

Can anyone please tell me how to separate the backbox from the main base? I can't get the pinball into my room upstairs.
I have looked and can't seem to figure it out. I also see a key/lock on top next to the red flasher. What is that for?

That lock on top will unlock the backglass. You can then carefully lift the backglass up and out of the game.
That will allow you to open the light panel behind the glass.
That will allow you to get to the two bolts that hold the head assembly to the main cabinet.

#1680 3 years ago
Quoted from HS1STPIN:

Now I just need the correct key.

Open the coin door and look on the inside. The backbox key is often hung on or near the back of the coin door.

#1682 3 years ago
Quoted from HS1STPIN:

Looks to have the protective sticker on the playfield. Do you all think its ok to remove that and put down a new one? I wanted to make sure when taking off the old one that it doesn't pull the paint off the wood playfield.

Do some reading on here about mylar removal. It's a crapshoot on paint coming up with the mylar. System 11 games (like High Speed) seem to be some of the worst for paint loss. I would leave it unless it's already coming loose or otherwise causing problems. YMMV.

Quoted from whitey:

Can you buy a new playfield for High Speed?

There are very few out there. They come up for sale once in a while at high prices.
Good news is that the Hardtop guys are working on High Speed.
Planning on that myself since I love my Space Shuttle hardtop.

Correction: looked back at that thread, and the Hardtop guys have not actually committed to High Speed.
But lots of requests, and I can't imagine that they won't make it.

Quoted from desertT1:

I guess I didn’t know about this.

Hadn't seen that either. I think I'm also in for a Hardtop, not playfield swap.
I just don't want to put that much more into it.
I'm aiming for very nice player, not collector quality. Even though I'm a collector.

Quoted from Freeplay40:

CPR was going to do another run of High Speed playfields

If that's true, they may beat the Hardtop guys to market.
I keep thinking that if I get a Hardtop, I'm going to want Freeplay40's clear ramp to go with it.

Quoted from Tomass:

Ok. Just to be clear, you do not mean with sandpaper right? I have 3000 grit if you do.

Try running a business card between the contacts while applying light pressure. You can also replce the EOS switches if the contacts look badly toasted.

Anyone know if the original style pop bumper caps are available anywhere?
The ones that Pinball Resource has don't have the radial lines around the outside edge, and no one else seems to have anything.

#2952 6 months ago
Quoted from GRUMPY:

Classic Arcades on eBay.

Yeah, tried there. Looks like he does not have them anymore either.

#2958 6 months ago
Quoted from PinballAir:

Did you contact jeff at classic?
His are not ribbed but they are good if you have none.
He is always advertising them on ebay.
He produces them himself i believe

Several places have the basic cap, with the correct center emblem, but no radial lines around the edge.
Steve Young has those much less expensive than anyone else, including the Ebay people.

I might either use the caps Steve has, with a decal from the image posted above for the lines, or I might put the old ones back on. I might be able to position them to where the chips in them don't really show.

#2976 6 months ago
Quoted from Shubox:

Unfortunately looking at my game today I realize whoever put the clear ramp on mine did not put the metal bracket back on that this decal will mount to

You could probably fahricate a replacement. Or maybe someone has one in their spare parts pile.

Quoted from sataneatscheese:

3. For those of you that have done a playfield swap or hardtop. How many hours of work do you guys think it is on this game?

I just finished installing a Hardtop on mine. Probably 30 hours of work to do just the basic minimum for the Hardtop install plus a full shop and cleanup of all the playfield parts. I did not clearcoat anything and only sanded the inserts and right around them. Polished them as clear as a reasonable amount of work would give, but that's all. It looks very good. It would probably have gone faster if I was a better tech and didn't do things the stupid way a few times. Ya gotta learn somewhere.

Quoted from bobkasprzyk:

Is there any guidance out there for replacing. Do I have to bite the bullet and get a rivet press?

Pop rivets work pretty well for playfield plastics also. I did all the lamp covers on my High Speed that way and the came out very nice.
