Doesn’t mean you can skip leg day at the gym! Get at it!

Well, I got it down the basement to find a bad leg bolt and bracket and led lights for topper just barely attached to the channel topper sits it.

Anyone who installed the topper can explain how to install it simply?

I’m quite frustrated about the leg bolt!

After a year of waiting and starting this thread, my game has finally arrived! I am LOVING it! Thank you to all who made this possible!

Has anyone had this one problem? When my ball gets kicked out of the tortuga hole, it usually hits the wireform that is right above it. Adjusting the coil strength appears to make no difference. Does anyone have a fix?

I also have one leg bolt that won't screw in. Planning on retapping the threads sometime later this week.

I tried all 7 bolts on that left front top hole and none worked. The one bolt that caught initially, it took the first two threads right off the bolt.

Same here. Gotta do what Lloyd suggested and bust out the tap & die set.

Is the bracket with the two screws near the pop bumper firmly screwed on?

Mine was loose and ejected funny.

Tell me about it.

And pinball never ceases to remind me of the tools I don't have... I've probably acquired most of my tools due to pinball related problems thinking about it.

It’s not the end of the world it’s a 2$ bracket. One of mine had a burr on the tread also. Simple fix to try. Remove leg, install bolt from Inside of cabinet going out. Often this will push the small thread burr out and simply reinstall the leg as normal. Will work just take your time.

Quoted from Psw757:

Open a ticket under Support at jerseyjackpinball.com or call them, to get a new bracket and bolt. If you don't have a tap and die set.

Seems to have solved the issue for the most part! It ejects funny 1 out of 10 ejects now I would say. Thank you!

#473 1 year ago

Found where all the loose hardware laying in cabinet goes with exception of a thumb setscrew.

#474 1 year ago

On another note while I have it all opened up.

Should the spinner disc be perfectly level to PF? Mine seems ever so slightly raised.

Coin mech... common they fall out in shipping

Try not to over analyze the game just enjoy it. I understand it’s expensive but these minor things do happen bouncing in a truck for hundreds of miles. The disk is a very simple adjustment of a large plastic jamb nut and turn center post down. Trust that most every game will need these adjustments but I Promise once you play this Amazing machine you will soon forget the effort. Yes little screw is for coin mech. Mine did the same. Consider the adjustments “ getting to know your game more intimately!” Lol

Whats the weight on jjpotc?

#479 1 year ago

Finally got the errors to clear and play a game.

Right mini pf flipper needs to be adjusted, after the first flip it got stuck in up position. Is this adjustable without removing the ship? Just needs to be tightened.

Also, Was able to lower the center disc to be flush with pf however there seems to be some up and down slop when pf is lifted causing the spinner to be slightly above pf but when pf is lowered gravity puts it back in place. Does the center screw do anything to tighten this up? Doesn’t seem to tighten or loosen when I turn it.

Thanks for all the help, beautiful game and don’t want to mess it up!

Hobbit is about 350 pounds, I suspect Pirates about the same, maybe a little lighter.

I believe they made the upper playfield easy to flip up to make adjustments...

Quoted from bigd1979:

Pull out clip on axle holding arm that hooks the motor to mini playfield ( behind playfield wall ) remove loong allen head set screw back there. Pull the pirate ship playfield back a little and lifts up.

Enough to work on it, if you need to remove it, some connectors below main playfield are involved, mark the opto ones.

Hey friends-
If you're coming to Chicago Pinball Expo this weekend, come say hi. If you have a Pirates already, or one on order, let me know. I'll have a little something special for you if we meet in person.
Cheers,
Eric

Dang Eric. I was at expo and just read your post. I have a JJPOTC LE on order.
Can’t wait to get my machine!

Don’t remove the ship Not necessary. On the Back of the Playfield behind the ship is a flat arm plate, nylon washer, and 2 socket head screws. Loosen the screws as the plate is Slotted and adjust ship tilt. As for the disk. Yes there is slop up and down just adjust level and only play with the Playfield Down lol. I had mine out to adjust gear mess noise very easy.

When you say adjust ship tilt, I’m assuming this will allow me to tilt it left to get to the bottom of right flipper?

Then level ship and retighten the 2 screws?

As for the disc, does that center screw do anything? I turned it left and right thinking it would reduce the up and down play and it doesn’t seem to do anything from what I can tell.

How did you reduce disc noise?

#487 1 year ago

I had ground braid in right side rear, lower leg bolt hole.

You don’t have to worry about the disk up down as long as it’s level. Gravity will do the rest. As for the mesh adjust. Mine was a tad noisy as the gears were not meshing proper so simply loosening and adjusting the motor position via 2 screws made it better. Not major.

How much did this help yours? My disc motor seems pretty loud as well although I'm not sure if that's normal. I took the mech out and tried messing around with the motor position but once back in the machine it didn't really seem to make any difference.

It’s still going to make noise as you have fresh plastic gears. After several games it will wear in a bit and quiet down. Mine the gears were barely touching so it sounded like a coffee grinder. Lol. Seems like the fine spot it close mesh but Not completely seated to the root of the gear. It is much quieter now and I suspect will get better in time and wear in. I may (but not suggesting to others) apply a silicone grease for plastic gears to fine tune but that is just a preference.

I had the same problem with mine, except it was the left side rear, lower leg bolt hole. This issue was supposed to be corrected with future cabinets so it wouldn't occur again.

Any idea what that center screw does on bottom side?
Part list calls it a serrated screw. I turned it a few times thinking I had to loosen it to adjust disc height.

The center screw simply keeps the shaft from coming out of the bushing. No need to mess with that.

I already did and it didn’t seem to move even though I turned in both directions.

I thought this was odd. This is where you can see the up down play with spinner as there is a small space between this screw and next component on shaft.

#495 1 year ago

We are So loving the plunder feature of this game software. I set it to the highest setting (bedlam I think?) and playing with friends and guests it really puts a spin on friendly competition. A little less serious and always a good laugh. At the end of our last game my wife Was winning till I pillaged virtually every point/gold she had. Lol we both had a good laugh playing like this. A new spin on pinball and loving it as it Should be Fun.

As I have tried to say, do not worry about the up and down it is taken care of with gravity. Yes, there is about 1/16” of clearance there but it doesn’t matter the disk will never levitate out of the Playfield. Just adjust Large silver bushing to set height and lock plastic jamb nut and done.

#497 1 year ago

Can someone post a picture of how the topper sits in the channel up top and what hardware was used to install?

#498 1 year ago

Wish I could help you out, but my ceiling is to low so I won't be able to install it.

Quoted from Psw757:

Don’t have a picture but I can try words. Topper sits in channel. Screws go through large holes in front, through acrylic topper, and thread into rail. Install all screws and put provided plastic caps in front large holes in rail. 5 minute install.

Here is the hardware they gave me. Screws not long enough to reach threaded hole in channel and no idea what these plastic anchors are for.

Called JJP this am about the leg bolt issue and asked about the topper, possible wrong hardware sent.
