Thanks. Could you send me a pic or circle it in the pic I posted? I've only had it for a month. I will probably put an nvram in eventually.

Yay! My Junkyard is 100% again. After much searching I finally found a popped solder joint. 2 minute fix and shes good as new. Installed replacement Bob and Spike decals, some titans rings and fixed a few lighting/switch issues. Looking good. Now I just need to update to ver 1.2

Just looking for some confirmation.
After moving the playfield my crane doesnt want to stay up anymore. I took a look and the coil have a popped solder joint and I found a loose frayed brown wire with a purple stripe. It's almost a given that the wire goes to the coil but I'd like some confirmation before I solder it back on incase I'm way off base. Anybody that can send me a pic of the back of your crane would be helping me out. Cheers.

Hey club.....sorry to say - I've left the club....sold my early production JY ($4100...not too bad..was gone in <24hrs)....it was time to move on - going to pick up an RFM for the lineup....I had JY for 5 years....highly underrated pin....was happy to contribute my magnetic reed switch experiments to JY owners.....oh, if anyone needs it - I'm not entirely sure I want to let it go - but I have an unobtanium part(s) for JY....a NOS wrecking ball with chain - impossible to find anymore.....just look me up....

Out of the club. Just didnt work in a smaller collection. Took a tiny hit on the sale but it frees up cash for something new. The new owners should be pleased though. I basically did nothing but fix the game up while I had it. She is a beauty.

Traveled to Seattle Wa this weekend for a wedding. Told the wife I didn't want to waste a trip with out picking up a pin. Have had a JY on my want list for sometime and was able to pick one up. I am officially joining the club.

Welcome

#511 35 days ago

Did you just grab that off Craigslist or where did you find it? (Curious what you paid, if you care to divulge (pm?) — I fully restored one a couple years ago and still have it.. have been wondering what it would go for

#512 34 days ago

Yes, I did get it off Craigslist. I bought it from JP in Seattle if you know him as he is very involved in the hobby along with the NW pinball show. I have wanted one for sometime and have followed prices for years now. I follow a machine prices here on Pinside and elsewhere before I purchase and/or sell. So I don't mind sharing the price which was $3800. He did throw in a set of mirror side blades for the machine. I felt the price was fair and the condition of the machine was in good shape. Would have liked better (maybe yours), but the difference was that I could touch, feel and p/u without shipping costs which if does happen, I feel adds to the cost of the machine. Most of the JY machines for sale on Pinside at the time I purchased this one reflect about the same advertised price.

Do to want to sell your machine or just wondering price? I did advertised where I live that I was looking to buy one on Craigslist, maybe you missed it. Anyhow I think I will be happy with the one I got, just will need a little TLC for my collection.

Thanks for the info — I def do know Jp, I’ve transported his games to the show several years

I off and on have been thinking about selling mine. I am still working on trigger wiring for a shaker I installed, for when you hit the wrecking ball. Once I finish that and get done more games in on it I’ll probably look to sell it at some point although it’s hard because it’s by far my nicest pin and I put a ton of work into it.

Little surprised to hear jy up to 3800. I figure that puts mine around 5k - 5.5k to the right buyer.. colordmd, chrome legs, rail, lockdown new decals, new pf and every part replaced or refurbished. . Even at that price, never get all my time and money back

If anyone is interested, I just purchased a replacement plastic, the one that is under the left side under the cars...I am currently shopping out, (this) my other Junk Yard pin and desperately needed this plastic part. I tried to make a replacement for the missing pieces but gave up. I ordered from the guy in Germany, took awhile to finally get it here in the States, as he doesn't ship directly here,,,what a pain in the ass, cost me about $40.00, so I am offering a full sized JPG. scan if anyone is interested...

It arrived and looks kind of like this, sans the clear plastic dome. The color "orangeish" is more "brownish" on the part also, not like the enclosed picture.

Mick

I will be selling this pin soon also, so if anyone has a friend interested, Chicago area, $3,950.

I have been fighting to solve a problem on Junkyard. The Fork Lifter in the DOG lane (Scoop up) does not go all the way up. See my video. Now I have cleaned the whole assembly part by part. It worked, for about a week and the problem returned. Then I replaced the main coil for the lifter, scoop up (the coil that does the lifting). It worked again, for about 3 weeks. Now it is back. So I replaced the driver Q26. Still does not work. Then I replaced the switch and diode that is used to detect wether the scoop is up or down. Again it worked for a while and now the problem is back. So I am asking for some help, advice, maybe someone else saw this same problem and solved it.

Anyway. Please help. Thanks. Joe.

It looks from your video that it’s not latching when you cool fires to hold the fork up? I’d have to look at mine - but I’m assuming there’s a latch and a mini coil releases it? Is the latch loose from wear or worn and slipping? Is there play in it? That’s all I can think of.. or fork may be broken and causing that? The back piece (under pf, that is welded between the 2 forks) is intact still?
