Quoted from Pinballerchef:

Anybody replace the plastics yet?? I am glad the flashers aren’t riveted but I can’t get the black plastic mushrooming things that lock the flasher domes back into the plastics....is there a sercret to these?!

In the automotive world, the pin poking out of the bottom would push up toward the top unmushrooming the bottom.

Hmmm ok I was trying to pull that pin and push that pin inward with plyers...wasn’t having any luck but I’ll focus more pushing that pin back in again. Thanks

#203 5 months ago

No such luck with the flasher dome push pins...the plastic pin within don’t move. I was able to finagle the pins into the new plastic but the the flasher domes have even smaller holes hahahaha. I left plastic has 3 flasher domes on it to boot...gonna be painful!

Anybody actually put on these plastics yet???

#204 5 months ago

Just changed all my plastics yesterday.Went like a charm

Ok sooooo any insight on the pins for the flasher domes?! Am I doing something wrong?

#206 5 months ago

I only pulled the black plastic pin out and removed the black holder for the pin.

Then i placed the dome on the new plastic,inserted the black holder through the plastic and dome (pushed it together with my fingers so it went through both holes) and secured it with the black plastic pin.

Ok so your pin and black holder were able to be pulled apart?? Because I’ve held each end with a pair of plyers and that pin will not move in or out...all I’m doing is stretching the plastic pin out and smushing up the black holder...seems so simple but driving me bonkers

Maybe find a short stainless screw to take its place ?

No that wouldn’t keep the look it originally has...the plastics are black and so is this pin. It almost hides itself in with the plastics...dunno why it has to be so annoying tho.

I’m only guessing the pin/push tab may be unobtainable, you could still use a screw, just paint the head black, or scour the internet and automotive shops for something similar. Sorry you’re having such a hard time

My robowar is folded up in storage now for a year, I’m about to have my gameroom finished so I can finally slide it in and play it

Thanks for the suggestion. Have fun setting your games back up...I’m sure Robowar has missed you plenty!

Anybody happen to have
an ALPHA II drop target bank plastic?
I realize its a long shot but I really could use one. Mine just chipped another piece so I removed it from the game.
Let me know, thanks all.

If you find a stash, I’d like one too

#221 24 days ago

Yeah, it is the small plastic that goes
on top of the ALPHA II bank.
It says GL-5 Tower.

#222 22 days ago

Some of my rollovers are sticking, enough so that they stop the ball. Stops 'em cold so that I often tilt trying to nudge them free.
What to use as a lube?
Any/all ideas appreciated.
Thanks IA

Probably need more angle on the playfield, raise up tbe back legs a bit.

#225 11 days ago

I can give that a try. Thx.

Yeah, don’t lube them, if raising the legs doesn’t work, the switch wires need to be adjusted

Haven't done anything as of yet.
If I were to raise the legs wouldn't that make the ramp shot that much harder?
Switch wires you say?
Please explain, thanks.

#228 7 days ago

Any system80 I have played if the flippers are not dialed in correctly there very hard to make ramp shots. If yours is near impossible now than they might need a switch cleaning and gap adjustment, or if switches are badly pitted/worn than maybe a rebuild is in order. You can adjust the rollover leafs so its not as hard to press down wit h will let the ball push them down a bit easier.

Gotcha

Thanks for the input.
Always something to learn.

Sorry, switch wire forms might need adjusting so that the leaf switch under the playfield will have good contact
