About the helicopter plastics.............................
Were they factory installed?
Does anyone use them now?
Does everyone have extras?
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 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.
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 Netsepp:
i am searching for the decal grafics to renew my Highspeed cabinet. someone has this grafics for me ?
You can get cabinet decals here:
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.
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.
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.
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.
