need to know where lower ramp all connects to the playfield. seems like my lower left corner of ramp is kinda flimsy... only place mine is connecting is the 2 ramp screws at the flap and on the slingshot. is there supposed to be another ramp support somewhere?

Quoted from Pintucky:

Man! Your pin looks bright! That is just danged BEAUTIFUL!!! I wish mine could look like that. I've put in LED's everywhere I could find a place to put them, but mine sure doesn't shine like yours!!! Care to share the secret? Heck, your pin is so pretty it makes me want to go out and buy one! Ha.
And yes . . . this is a severely under-rated pin! Unique and great game play. I can't figure out why it doesn't get any love, unless it is fear of that big display . . . knowing how costly they are to replace (and the problems a lot of people have with them) and how difficult it is to even find one.
By the way . . . does your head work? Turn back and forth? I've put in two new servos and still it doesn't move. If you've had to repair yours, then also share any info on that too please, especially where you bought the servo. I got mine through some online RC stores. Maybe those don't work and you have to buy one from a pinball parts distributor?
Mike in Kentucky

Its usually not the servo, its the board... and nobody on the planet can fix them. I know, I recently had one of the best board repairman in the country try.

Can anybody post some pics of how the right ramp is supported in the back. I took apart to shop it and its sat for 2 years and i cant figure out if there was some hex nuts it sits on or what?

Quoted from lucky1:

I think the problem is not the electronic repair of the servo controller board, it is the pic firmware controlling the servo.
If the pic16c56 is defective you need to program a new one and without the code it is impossible to get a working controller.
But if nobody has extracted the code so far, it should not be to hard to reengineer the functionality of the firmware and
write the code from scratch.
This ApplicationNote could help as a starting point.

yes you're right it is the code that he couldn't copy.

Hi, I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for, but I tried to get some pics with my GoPro for you. They're here on my Google Drive. Not sure how helpful they'll be - let me know if there's a specific angle that you need.

I just need all the areas where the ramp is attached to the machine, weather it be sitting on a post or screwed in to something else. what supports the middle ramp? I know the 2 small ramp screws secure it to the playfield, but where else is it secured at in the back? to hold it up off playfield.

#265 7 months ago

ok, how did you get the plastic ramps orange?

#278 7 months ago

looking to sell nice franky, 90% shopped out, just needs finished, works great, frankie works too. in st. louis

#282 6 months ago

can somebody tell me how many places on the middle ramp is it secured to the playfield. I currently have 3 spots, should there be four?

#289 6 months ago

no, I'm talking about the plastic lower ramp. how many places is it secured to to playfield. I got the 2 ramp screws that hold it in, 1 screw on left side that sits on the hex post by the pop bumper, and 1 screw where the ball falls into the inlane on the end of the ramp. Is there any more places on ramp it attaches to the playfield or has a support bracket? seems left side of plastic ramp should be secured somewhere towards the back left corner.

#294 6 months ago

ok, that's what I'm missing then! thanks soo much. one more question...... the top plastic ramp sit on top of the 2 metal brackets in the very back or go underneath them. looks like yours is on top, but cant quite tell.

#296 6 months ago

ok, thank you, it was the eyes bracket/support I didn't have. I got the plastic piece but that's it. I see on the front of eye plastic its just riveted to a little "L" shaped bracket, I guess back bracket is the same type too? also, guess top plastic ramp goes on top of the 2 metal support brackets on the back??? I think mine was attached underneath those 2 metal tabs. it looks like yours is resting on top of them.

#297 6 months ago

Funny, my eye plastic isnt even drilled for holes on left side!

#302 6 months ago
Quoted from Crash:

I stuck the eyes plastic between the inside of the left wall of the left ramp return and the flasher. Near the left inlane, just attached it to the same post used the attack the lower portion of the ramp.

any pics???

Quoted from Colsond3:

So no, not just two. Starting at the bottom of the playfield, there is the hex extender on the left slingshot, another longer hex extender behind the green pop bumper, the "eyes plastic" at the top of the green pop bumper, and two support brackets on the top of the playfield under the display.
The eyes plastic supports a good portion of the ramp above the pops.

where is the one behind the green pop bumper at? not the eyes plastic, but another mount?

#343 3 months ago

ok after contacting 4 people I finally figured out where my ramp needed to be secured at to stable it up. turns out there is a 1 3/4 inch hex post right behind frankies hand that supports the ramp. damn, I'm glad that's over!

#348 3 months ago
Quoted from harig:

Hi ccbiggsoo7,
could you please provide some picture from the hex post you mention?
Was just wondering the same when rebuilding Franky: the lower plastic ramp (=the biggest one) on my game is a bit wobbly and only supported by 2 scresw at the entry flap-followed by the "eyes" plastic-the long post behind the green bumper and finally at the post at the left slingshot.
Seems there should be some additional support at the back of the ramp ?

well I tried the 1 3/4 inch hex that guy had in his game, it raised my ramp up to high, so I guess i'll try 1 1/2 or 1 1/4.

#349 3 months ago

Anybody else have this hex post here?? Whats the length of it?

Quoted from Hazzard:

Thank you!
A lot of sounds did not make it onto the video I`m afraid, but you get the idea
The sound on the video is a mix of a line out recording from the pinsound board and the microphone in my phone, BUT, I did replace the stock speakers (total garbage by the way) with some good quality car stereo speakers. They where not expencive at all, and a huge upgrade in sound. And I replaced the cabinet speaker with a 10" subwoofer. It really gives a fantastic impact on the sound experience.
I actually replacd the Edgar Winter music with the movie soundtrack, but you can use whatever music you want, the sound effects and callout are the same
Yes, I will upload to the pinsound community as soon as I am completely done with the mix. Trying to make new jackpot sounds, but my throat is getting soar from all the yelling, hahah, had to take a break...
If you are interested PM me, and I can share the work in progress mix with you.

can you tell us which car speakers you used? sound is shitty on this game.

#360 3 months ago

yeah I know its for added support, just wondering whats the correct length of the support supposed to be?
