Anyone install the 7volution displays in your Viking?

I got a set several weeks ago and they wouldn't work, stopped my game from booting. Worked with Brett from xpin, and we got the game to then boot but then the displays weren't working. He has just been busy with life I'm sure, nothing against the company but I was really hoping to have the game fixed by this weekend so I was wondering if anyone else has had issues with the displays and if so have you found a solution? Thank you. -Tommy

I am running them in all spots. Are you running some 7volution and some original? That could be the problem.

Nope got the full set. He said he changed the board design and there was at least one other person with a Viking having the same issue as me so was just hoping maybe that person has gotten the resolution. I’m sure he will get to me eventually.

i bought a used in lane drop target mech to use on my homebrew game but it is missing two of the arms that control the drops. does anyone have any spare parts from a rebuild/restore i could buy off them? Cant seem to find that part anywhere stand alone.

I would buy a brand new whole mech from PBLife. better and more reliable TBT.

What's the consensus on the A/B lane plastics? Should there be plastic guide flaps down both sides, or should they be one-sided favoring the lane to leave more rubber action near the saucer?

Mine has plastic one side only on the lane.
Bought it that way.

Just finished cleaning this one up.
Replaced all plastics/rubbers/bulbs/drop targets/etc
I thought red flippers would work well but the game is kind of dark so I'll probably go back to white.
Fire LEDs look good in the pops and the two fires in the backglass though.

looks nice. If you want a set of new spinner decals, just say the word.

I made up some extras when I did my restoration.

That's a nice offer. Maybe he will give you the nod.

Looks nice, are your flippers misaligned or just a weird photo angle ?

#172 10 months ago

Misaligned.
Didn't tighten them down yet since I'm not sure I like the look as much as I thought I would.

I finally joined this club recently and am very thrilled!
The funny thing was I always thought I wanted Mata Hari, but when I actually aquired one I realized quickly that it was Viking i reeally wanted.
I will post some photos soon.

Just a question, all the GI (but not the lamps for Tilt, game over etc) is out in the backbox. All fuses seem good, does anyone know which connector on the lamp driver card goes out to the backbox GI? I would think its a connector issue or something.. or any idea?

I am fixing up a machine that has a missing inlane/outlane ball gate. Does anyone know what the closest available replacement would be? Or perhaps at least it’s dimensions?
