Quoted from sataneatscheese:

What are the items you need to look out for on this particular machine when making a purchase beyond normal pinball inspections?
I am going to pick up one of these on Sunday if there is nothing majorly wrong with it. From what I can see in photos the playfield looks good, minor wear in the shooter lane, no credit dot, not a reimport, and only light fading on the cabinet. Just trying to find out if there are any unobtanium highly breakable parts or spots that have major wear I should be on the lookout for. Thanks and will post pictures assuming she makes it home!

If you buy it, there are two essential mods that are absolute game changers for IJ. 1). Korn’s plane mods 2). The antidote Both are well documented here.

Quoted from sataneatscheese:

Always and forever.
But the ticker has changed from CCIV to LCID... and I'm green again!

Glad to hear that. Did you keep dumping it little by little or bought more?

Quoted from KornFreak28:

I liquidated about a third of my position a couple months ago. Selling off chunks every time the stock rises $2.39 starting at $26.35 now.

Quoted from Johncare07:

The example I'm picking up comes with the plane mod with spinning propeller, Ark mod, color dmd, side blades, LEDs, and cliffys... I will have to look into the antidote.

I finished installing my Jackpot Board and learned that the openings in the speaker board do not need to be the exact shapes. This makes the project much easier.

The proto's and sample games just have a round cutout and a #44 bulb behind it.
Nothing fancy.

so can this be easily achieved with a forstner drill bit? I might try it, otherwise, seems like a hassle.

No... Use a Dremel with a router bit.

Need some help! I am getting two balls launched at a time into the shooter lane from time to time. Also the game seems to end while a ball is still in play. Is this an issue with opto board in the ball trough or something else. Can't seem to resolve the problem. Thanks

I’d get new trough opto boards unless you’re handy to replace the optos. Fairly common issue. Divots in ball trough can contribute too. So check those.

Same happened to me, new opto boards will fix the problem.

A mis-adjusted or bad shooter lane switch can sometimes cause this also.

The game is great, my only complain is that the MB can be easily abused to accumulate points by just focusing on the MB rather than the modes, I can see why this game would not be a good candidate for tournament due to this, other than that I love the code considering the age of the game.

I've seen IJ used in tournament finals where going modes (to score quickly) was the better strategy over trying to survive long enough to get MB - it really depends how brutal the IJ is set up (outlanes fully open, no rubbers on the outlane or narrow escape, no ball save, no extra balls, etc), so it's a risk/reward as you have less ball control going the drop targets

Good point.
Yeah it could be very vicious it set up like that.

Has anyone replaced these on IJ?
Marcos seem to have both the full assy or just the gate, but I am skeptical and I think the gate alone might be challenging to replace, meaning I will need a new wire form and all the other pins that actuate the gate to fully rebuild it.

The question being, anybody with first hand experience? The gates both right and left are rusting in my game and would like to replace it them. I am ordering a few items from Marco so I figured this is a good opportunity to do these too.

It just surface rust that went below the oxide finish.

Its easily sanded off then polished with fine Emory cloth.

Then cleaned with lacquer thinner and then brushed with black gun bluing. Might take a couple coats.
Heating with a hair dryer or heat gun increases the effectiveness of the compound.

I usually boil the part in water (get it to 200 degrees), dry it off with compressed air and dip it into the solution. But brushing the solution on at room temperature works well also.

When dry, coat with carnauba wax or gun oil and it will last for another 30 years.

They look better than new.

Cold bluing liquid is available at walmart and online.

#9072 28 days ago
Quoted from Ricochet:

I hope those who are using Lao's Antidote feel it has upped the excitement of the game.
I am always around and always available for support or questions.

I would love to get one of the Lao's Antidote Deflectors with the SDTM fix. Please add me to your list for this great mod.

I've had my Indy for 25 years and mode start rejects are the only things that detract from this fine game. So if there is a long wait for Lao's Antidote then I will be glad to wait for it whenever its available. Just let me know when and how to pay.

Ok I can try this, have lots of bluing left from my IPSC days a story for another day.

I thought at first the finish flaked off and it was past saving…

Wondering how hard is to disassemble this? i am afraid the wire forms might be staked to stay in place and I personally do not like to Fudge around with a part unless I can bring it back to factory spec or better.

I just cut the flattened end off the retaining/hinge wire then bend a new one and flatten the end in my vice when done.

Marco has all the wire sizes in stock. Get and assortment and a couple of the larger size as well for ball guides.

Its fast and easy.

I'm down to 12 airball mod stoppers. Details in the marketplace. A must for this game.

I bought two sets of these a few years ago now and it completely changed my game. I am still on the first set also.
Honestly i wonder how people do not have an airball protector in their game

#9079 25 days ago

Hi all- took me 3 months but finally installed lao anecdote - actually not bad - great instructions BUT how do I know when the POA is on right (the Allen wrench screw thing in right place so POA is right amount forward vs backward)? Should it have a little give back girth or left right? Seems like it’s close to hitting mode hole and trying to make sure it is in perfect spot. Thank you!

levelled with the platform in front of it, where the ball exits the poa. do not use the bridge to gauge the levelness of it, the bridge is slanted.

#9081 25 days ago

Thanks PF. That helped. I didn’t have the two screw bracket as tight as should have been. Also what was driving me crazy was I potently have an extra bracket on the medial side of POA which I never realized (none of other machines I see online have this). It makes it tight but workable for the clearance to the mod hole. Thought I was going crazy. Thanks again

Did you have to remove the playfield or put it on it's side? I'd love some details when you are done.

Quoted from sataneatscheese:

I dropped it down on my Milwaukee light and made sure nothing was able to be damaged on the backboard. I had to remove the speaker but you need to either remove the playfield, suspend it or drop it off the rails so you can remove the bolts. Here is a pic. It was a little tipsy so I have that rod ensure it stays up. I’ve sanded the sides and jiggled it a ton. That rod is keeping it safe

Happy81724... are you painting over the original cab & head decals, before installation of RadCals?

#9087 24 days ago
Quoted from Kerry_Richard:

No, just the edges if the rad cal isn’t quite flush. My buddy has done quite a few pins and basically all you have to do is make the cabinet flat so fill/sand any spots that are not but they can go right over existing art if it’s all smooth

I've done many RadCals. I wouldn't recommend going over existing side art w/o painting it a solid color. RadCals are somewhat transparent, so you'll be able to see the existing artwork under your new RadCals. There is a thread here on Pinside, actually discussing this done with an IJ RadCals. Once you stick them on, your screwed.

That thread is on RadCals, I don't think it's here in the IJ thread. You should read / see it.

Ok, the head is done but not the body. The front I did actually paint. The head looks great even though i didn’t paint that. I don’t see anything but I can paint the body today before putting them on

Thanks!

Quoted from PBFan:What a great game. 13 modes!Finally made the 1 billion shot yesterday. First time ever.

After a couple years having the game, just got the 1 billion for the first time just a few days back. It is my favorite pin and that's sitting next to POTC, TOTAN and The Hobbit...Love them all but IJ just edges them out.

#9092 24 days ago

Ha! Congrats. It’s very elusive. I’ve only ever got it once as well, I thought I missed the final switch be for the second to last ball drained and I looked up 1 Billion Red Banner! So cool. I almost got there last week. Had 2 balls trapped and all I needed was the left ramp. Way too easy and I bricked and right out the left outlane! Agony of defeat! This will be the last pin standing when it comes time to sell everything else

It’s a Milwaukee light which is a nice flat box so I could drop the playfield off the rail bolts to take them off. It’s sitting upright on it. Otherwise you have take the playfield completely out or people suspend it from chains

New cab is a lot of work.

Refreshing an old cab is much easier.
