Recently received all mother boards back from Clive at "Coin Op Caldron". Clive does excellent work. As well as thoroughly check each board for physical and internal errors he also play test and give you a print out of all found errors and repairs done. He removed the remote battery pack someone installed on my board and upgraded it to a mounted lithium ion battery. He also Labeled all blank game specific program chips and replaced those that are of old or problematic design or found with errors. Also upgraded those problematic blue dip switch cluster to the new more durable red ones. Clive does awesome work!! http://webpages.charter.net/coinopcauldron/brepairs.html 20150430_083616_resized.jpg
I Removed that fake adhesive semi-metalic laminate covering from the large pc board panel Gottlieb used on some of their later model games, painted it white and mounted all boards in place with ground mod wires attached and ready:20150430_081453_resized.jpg
Repinned the MPU connector cable. I have doubled the ground and power wires as recommended. You can see the burn marks on original cable from years of the florescent bulb transformer heating up. These wires were very brittle and broke easily. In the before pic below I have already replaced and doubled the ground wires (black)
Shaker motor installed and all Gottlieb solid flat ground strip changed to standard braid cable:
More to come!
