Nice! And one step closer to a Stingray pf

Quoted from CaffeineSlug:

Answering the galaxy flipper questions:
- mechs are original ("type 1" style)
- it's possible they're bally bats. Owner said they were Stern replacements, but I'm not sure where they came from. The "type 2" replacements on my meteor are definitely smaller, but would only make up about half the difference.
- repositioning the entire mech seems like a good idea, I didn't know how much play was available there. Long-term I think the machine will eventually get a new set of mechs, so I might wait until then just to put fewer holes in the playfield.
- machine is on location so I won't see it for a few days (hopefully). I'll take more pics this weekend.

Here is a better picture. I also checked my flippers and PN is correct. Maybe I need thinner rubber?

Note: CPR Galaxy playfield would be great.

I have an older Williams that had huge flipper hop on one side, I seem to remember the lower two connections went into tee nuts so I slotted the metal rail a bit and used slim rubbers to get it flush.
If the guide uses wood screws I'd probably just fill the old holes and move the the whole thing up a hair.

Cut a slight slot in those added clear plastics for adjustment. They aren't original anyway so you're not hurting anything.

Beehive looks to already have a prototype done so I would suspect they will be running them soon.

If they do.....I’m going to have keep my Galaxy forever for how much I got into it. Great game though.

As your attorney, I advise you to buy a classic stern.
I finally did! Purchased a mint Galaxy last week. My techs got it at his house tracking down a bug. So wont land for a while. But I'm psyched for my first REAL Stern.

I think your ball guide is mis-located. Some good straight on pictures you ld help to see.

Quoted from CaffeineSlug:

I would be in at $20 for a single kicker/pivot pair.
I would buy two pairs for the one game I own right now. If I thought these would not be available long-term I'd probably buy another two pairs for some future game.
I'd probably be willing to pay a bit more if necessary, but I wouldn't buy spares.

Kerry sent me an email today regarding the sling shot kickers. His first attempt has failed. He did not elaborate. He says he will get back to them in a couple of weeks.

I imagine he will be rolling this problem around in his head reaching for a solution.

I have new plastic set and one of my ball guides doesn’t seem to fit right, I have to push the plastics up to get it to screw in :/ should I slot the holes or just push the plastics

I just bore the holes out a bit.

How about giving me some pictures so I can see what is going on?

Thank you, but it would help if they were screwed into position so I can see what is going on.

Success! My tech found out the credit switch had been improperly wired! It was messing with the dip switches and turning off the sound.
He's gonna put in new flipper coils, and Bob's your uncle!
Gonna pick it up next week.

Very happy Message from the Freek Kingdom.
