I will try that. Thanks

For those of you wanting to get rid of that nasty florescent tube in your 80B backboxes, this LED setup from Amazon looks great and is super easy to install. You'll need to open up the mounting holes for the tube mount slightly, but the stock bolt will go back in the stock hole for perfect spacing with the included mounts. I clipped the wire right after the plug and used the included wire nuts to connect. You want straight 110v, so get rid of the transformer and starter all together. The 6500k daylight deluxe version seems to make the translite less washed out than the original bulb.

The whole setup costs a whopping $12 shipped if you have Prime.

Must’ve been reading my mind. I’ve been thinking about this lately. I can’t help but think that the UV produced from the florescent bulb is what contributes to a lot of the faded translites as well.

Question on setting a system 80 Black Hole to free play. I know of the jumper wire diode board solution, would it also work to solder one set of coin switch wires to the credit/start switch in the coin door? I’m rebuilding my coin door and was just wondering.

Or just get the updated ROM:

https://www.flipprojets.fr/Blackhole_EN.php

"The BLACK HOLE (model #668) Pinball that we own has been improved and has now new functions. The main amendment carried out is the SYSTEM 80A translation, with replacement PROM U2 and U3 by a new single EEPROM and the rewiring of the displays.

Features of our Black Hole update:

Talking US version with animated backglass.
Display on 7 digits.
FREEPLAY.
Legacy of improvements of the SYSTEM 80A:
Quickstart (equivalent to the FASTBOOT).
Improved test mode & bookeeping.
New configuration of the DIP (moneyers...).
Limitation of the high-scores (overflow protection).
Deleting of the service printer."

Quoted from Raff:

Use a flat metal paint scraper put it between the cabinet and the rail and slowly wedge it up and down next to the nails you should see the nails move when you get a few mm get a pair of pincers and pull the spiral nails out.

Yeah i do the same when coating siderails, works on all machines

Does anyone have a name or source for the exact large/small springy wire loom hold downs in the 80b back boxes? I'm always breaking them when I have to take a backbox off.

#3408 6 days ago

The plastic ones? They're p clips

The regular P-clips have screw eyes on both ends and are thinner...I am looking for the open ended, thicker springy ones. But I think I tracked them down now.

Those are not what Gottlieb used, although you could cut the second screw tab off.

Anybody have a spare A1J6 Connector housing that they're looking to sell? My OCD is kicking in and hating having a replacement.

Posted to the Black Hole Members Club, but figured I'd ask the larger Sys80 club....

Just joined the club, picked up a black hole yesterday....

Aside from a really intense shop job and a the typical ground mods, I do have 1 problem: although the machine I picked up has the spinning disk for the backglass with it, the entire motor assembly to make it spin is AWOL.

Sourcing a new motor, hub and hardware to rebuild the spinning disk motor assembly is easy enough. But the machine is also missing the simple one-piece motor mounting bracket that would allow me to attach the motor to the backbox lamp/board panel in the first place.

Anyone know if that bracket can be found anywhere, or does anyone happen to have a spare one they'd be willing to part with? Thanks for the help.

Check with PBR Steve had replacement motors I believe and he may also have the bracket. I would call directly and ask as he has many items not listed on his site.

Why not making one from scratch? You just need a sheet of metal and a driller...

Piece of flat stock from Home Depot and a drill, take a hot 10 minutes

#3417 3 days ago

Thanks. I realize building one isn't the most complicated thing, but considering I don't own a drill press, center punch, necessary sized bits, etc.... probably doesn't make sense. I'll reach out to Steve directly to see if he has any.

Hi guys,

Picked up a nice haunted house today

Noticed this issue with some cable in the head, any idea of how it should be?

Additional question:
2 pop bumper fuses are burst as soon as the game is on; I assume their boards are dead?
Another one is not blowing the fuse but not reacting at all as well.
Fourth one has a seized coil but is registering

Sys80 bumper joy!

Start with looking for bad joints on the popper board connections. Mine had a bunch & blown fuses and after repairing the joints the problem went away.
