Hey all,

I just bought a STTNG and it is missing the "rear leg guides". The only thing I can find on the internet is other people looking for them. The part is 01-10726 It looks like a "J". The guides are used to pull out the playfield without damage. The game is incredibly hard to shop without it.

I ripped this picture off of another pinside thread. http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/problem-with-playfield-rails (thanks Chocky 909), but no one answered him about the guides.

Does anyone know a source? I have looked all over.

Thanks!

I am working on my TOTAN and noticed this on a Shadow I just got rid of. Both were exports and both missing rear leg guide rails. The manual shows that they should be there but no holes? Here is the rear of my TOTAN anyone run into this? Should I just get longer bracket screws? Please advise if you have experience as it kills me to hear and feel wood on wood.

TOTAN doesn't use rear leg guides. I think very few, if any, WPC95 uses them.

Neither does Shadow or STTNG. That's also the reason for the holes not being there. On pins that use them they are listet in the "Lower Playfield Parts" section of the manual. You can also check the parts list. Has nothing to do with export or not.

The reason you see them in the instruction for lowering the PF ist because they always just copied this section over from manual to manual. STTNG was one of the first, if not the first, not to have them.

What surprises me is that your PF is touching the wood. You'd have to lift it straight up from resting position to get the PF on the woos rails. But you pull it forward only slightly lifted, and raise it not before the tilting mechanism is locked.
Seen a lot of damage on PFs in that just area because mechanics used to treat the pins like trucks...

Thanks. I realized Ive been incorrectly following instruction and see that there is no need for em.
