Looking for a replacement for the large plastic shown in the pic for underneath the coffin. I'm hoping someone perhaps has an extra from parting out a full plastic set. Please PM if you have one that I could buy.

Thanks

I'm hoping for a bit of expertise to tackle an issue with the balls not always ejecting properly from the coffin. Weirdly enough, the problem only seems to be with the last ball and occurs either when I get the 3 lock multiball or the machine is trying to clear multiple balls from the coffin after the game has ended. The ball shoots up but doesn't usually make it out of the coffin...its close though. The first few balls have no issue. I found the following service bulletin and was curious if anyone has encountered this issue and how they've fixed it. Would love a pic or two as that is always really helpful. Here's the service bulletin:

"If the game clears multiple balls but has trouble with the last ball, the eject plunger and coil need to be aligned with the tube leading upwards in to the coffin, most often this is solved by adding a thin washer between the top coil mounting bracket part# 01-9794 and the popper assy. weldment part# 04-10349, alternately the washer can be added to the lower coil mounting bracket to move the plunger the other direction if necessary"

Thanks in advance for your help!

Quoted from weaverj:

did you attempt the bulletin and it didn't help or are you asking if anyone else has tried it to remedy the same issue?

I haven't attempted the bulletin's solution and wanted to see if anyone else has or if they implemented something different.

Quoted from whthrs166:

I have done this but not to my SS. It’s a plunger to ball alignment issue. It will move the plunger to hit the ball so it will come out of the VUK smoothly
Take the glass off, set the test mode for the coffin vuk to operate toss a ball in and see how it is kicking it out then throw all three in the lock and watch them come out. Once you get the plunger aligned right the problem will disappear.

Really appreciate the advice. It's strange that the issues only impacts the last ball when multiple are ejected from the coffin. You'd think an alignment issue would impact any ball ejected from the coffin.

I'll get some small washers and implement the fix.

How did you go about getting the plunger properly aligned?

Quoted from whthrs166:

You have to shim the coil mount bracket with washers for the coffin vuk.

I actually shimmeed the two left most screws for the whole mech and the fix seems to be working. It's not the fix the service bulletin suggests, but it accomplishes the same thing and it works! The power of gravity for the win!

I posted previously that I'm looking for the large plastic that goes underneath the coffin. I've asked around and, since no one has one to spare, I'm thinking of another strategy. If I purchase this plastic set from ebay for $80 and just take the one plastic that I need, would someone want to purchase the remaining 12 pieces for $55 plus shipping? The link to the set is below. Please PM if you're in

Put a wanted ad out there to find this plastic. I've included the pic from the ad which details the piece I'm looking for.

Thanks!

For anyone like myself who is looking for this plastic, I've good good news. Marco has it back in stock! I just installed it and now I can 100% say that my machine has zero cracked / broken plastics!
