Quoted from Sirgubster9:

let me know how the orange spring treats you, i might need to drop my spring power down a bit.

So the orange spring definitely has enough power to at least get me to the flipper skill shot hole (4) with ease but definitely not enough punch to make the ramp loop.

That being said, I just finished shopping the playfield and haven’t even looked at the pitch/level of the game. I know it’s off but I still have some cosmetic work to do. The legs and lockdown bar are a mess and need some attention. Already started stripping all the paint off of the lockdown.

For anyone interested, here is what I have done so far. Lit the Lauren Belle and ball trough. Still waiting on a replacement 5 drop target bank to replace the mangled one in there and a knocker assembly that is missing. I also made up some apron cards while I was waiting on the rest of my parts order

Hello, have hopefully a quick question for everyone. I’m replacing my Lauren bell motor, it’s really loud and struggling. In replacing the old one (right in photo) with the one I bought from Marcos (left) I noticed that the old one has a light and resister across the connection wires? Anyone know what they’re for as they’re not on my new one. Also, really stupid question but it looks like my motor is wrapped in tape in the new one? Do I need to take this off? Sorry, I’m still learning all the electrical stuff. Thanks in advance.

Controlling arc damage from coils and motors is done by suppressing inductive kickback. A neon lamp serves the same basic function as an MOV, with slightly less precision and at lower voltages. In this case, when the voltage climbs high enough to light the lamp, the inductive energy dissipates through the element. When neon lamps are used for transient suppression, they are placed in the same location as the MOV

I was concerned about this as well and I just put it in as it was and have had no problems. Hopefully I won’t in the future. I asked Marco and they were not sure.

I did the same motor swap close to 2 years ago and haven't had a problem. my old motor looked like the one pictured, the new motor i got a parts lots purchase so not sure where it came from but also looked like this one in the pic. the new one is definitely a lot quieter.

I have recently joined your ranks as a Maverick owner. Last week a lady called me at my Pinball Repair business and asked me to give her $500 for her old broken Pin. So I went to check it out and it was a one owner, Maverick that didn’t boot! It has some minor sun fade on the right side and heavy sun fade on the plastics... but other wise in great shape!

Needless to say, I bought it and took it home... on its Birthday even!! October 25th!

I put in a Rotten Dog MPU while I diagnose the original MPU. I just finished stripping and cleaning everything, installed all new Titan Rubber everywhere and new bulbs. No LEDs. I also installed all new drop targets and decals from Marco. However, many of them are badly warped, so I may have to do that again.

Now I am chasing down multiple switch issue, but once I have it fixed it should be a hoot!

Here are a few pics. Not bad for $500 and a 30 minute drive.

One heck of deal for that price.
I love mine, good rule set and a lot of fun to play!
Congrats!

#1109 11 days ago

Awesome deal for sure!

I thought i got a good deal for mine at $800 a few years ago. My was suck with the Open Coin Door message because the batteries were dead and they didn't know where the key was. My cab has a few dings on the front but yours is really nice.

Congrats its a really fun game

I paid $1500 for mine, but it didn't need any work at all. As it turned out, it is one of my favorite games and isn't going anywhere - no regrets!

#1111 10 days ago

I’m very happy with mine. Now if I could just figure out what is wrong with it. Apparently, slapping on the side triggers several switches. And several drop targets seem to cause an end of ball.

Slowly but surely. I also need to rebuild all the opto sensors

The slapping on the side will likely be the easiest to troubleshoot. Check the gap on your switches. Run the switch tests for the drop targets, making sure each indication is only one and the correct switch. What exactly happens at this "end of ball"?

#1113 10 days ago

That’s the odd thing. I have tested every single switch and they all report only firing their switch. All SEEM to work fine. But I’ll be playing a game, the ball will strike a seemingly random drop target and it just ends the ball. My bonus will start counting and the flippers go dead. Then it spits out the next ball.

I say it seems random, because it has done it on almost every drop target at least once. But, if I hit the king and ace of spades at the same time.... ball ends almost every time.

#1114 10 days ago

Sounds like a connector issue loose.
See if they are all related to the same connector on the boards

#1115 10 days ago

I’m having a hard time discerning what is causing the ball to end. What is the trigger for that in this game?

*Edit*
It is the trough roll overs and CPU Logic.

#1116 10 days ago

The more I screw with it, the more I agree it is a connection issue. It eems to be vibration based.. not drop target based... Which is why it
moves around.

*Edit*
It seems with your all's help, I have solved that issue. The ball trough rollover harness was zip tied to the coil for the sling. The zip tie was pushing the connector apart. Once I fixed that, I am now able to play a game, without the ball ending prematurely!! Thank you!!

Now to pull it all back apart, to get at the optos for in front of the wheel.. and try to fix them.

#1117 10 days ago

That took a while, but it is now playing seemingly 100%. Is the paddle wheel supposed to run the entire time a game is playing? That seems like unnecessary wear on the motor.

Mine does. I had to replace the motor not long ago. I paid $1800 and had some issues at first but it’s running like a champ now. Love the game. You got a great deal.

#1119 10 days ago

It is officially done. It was completely stripped and cleaned, all new Titan Rubber and all new bulbs. All six options have been repaired and multiple shorts and bad connections fixed.

Addams has a new set of Titan Rubber waiting on it as well. I’ll start in it’s shop job next.

BTW, this is my great deal wall. I have less than $3600 in all three tables. TAF and Maverick both were bought from their original owners. Paid asking price on both.

That didn't last long. I got about 20 games in and it went haywire again. I think, instead of fighting with possible connector issues under the playfield, I am just going to go ahead and replace all of them with something else. Maybe weatherpack connectors.

I replaced the trough switches and the problem went away. YAY!!!!

#1121 8 days ago

Looking for a Maverick if anyone looking to sell thanks,

#1122 4 days ago

I replaced every piece of rubber on my Maverick with Titan rubbers. Even those odd short post rubbers. It looks and plays phenomenally!!! I also created a black and a white kit of Titan's site, for Maverick based off of what I used to do mine. Enjoy!
