Hey all,

Since this is where we all go to brag about thing, I guess I'll brag, too. Just got in the door from picking up a Williams Indiana Jones. Nothing out of the ordinary, but it came up for sale, reasonably priced, and I wasn't going to turn it down. Looking forward to getting it all together this evening or maybe tomorrow. Anything I should know about it, as I've only ever played it to try it out this morning?

Great pin and has a lot of great possible mod additions. You're going to be extremely happy with your choice. The pin will fly around a lot in this game and the ramps can sometimes be pretty tough, yet satisfying to hit.

Nothing you need to know except it's the best game ever made...

It's raining in the pinball desert lately.

Grats on the pickup.

You'll want to make sure the POA works and that you can get the ball to roll down the left and right top lanes. I have problems where I bend the tab so it will go left, but then it always go left, or vice versa. You have to bend the metal tabs to get it just right. I ended up putting some drop dead foam on the left tab to help send the ball to the right, but sometimes it goes right even with the poa tilted left.

Other thing is make sure balls always stick in the mode start scoop. Common solution is to lift the pf and insert washers between the plastic scoop and the pf, plus adding drop dead foam (or felt) to the deflector plate and to the left of of the plate (some even remote the deflector plate but that didn't work for me). My right flipper coil is also one step below factory, it's the 15411 (orange). Takes enough mustard off the ball to prevent bounce outs. I almost never have a bounce out, maybe 1 in a 100 or less. No problem making the left ramp or left orbit.

One other thing I fixed just this last week was the drop target would sometimes not drop and then I would get a switch error on the drop target. Turns out the actuator arm of the switch sometimes gets caught on the underside of the plate that drops, so I had to bend the arm. Works like a champ now.

Now get ready for some excitement when you get a Super Jackpot or the 1B points during Eternal Life Multiball.

Yep, the area to the right of the mini playfield may need adjusted so it can fully tilt to the left and right. It's a very tight fit.
