Picked up a Frankenstein recently. I've noticed the pop bumpers seem sluggish.
I haven't done a shop job on the pin just yet. Would going to a larger coil size help? I'm used to the way Williams pop bumpers play.
Yeah, replace the coil sleeves first at least. Check the coil stops while doing that too and replace if needed.
I tend to go a bit overboard on my shop jobs. My typical shop job is usually 120+ hours. Needless to say, all coils assemblies will be meticulously rebuilt, new sleeves on everything, switches cleaned/replaced, re-gapped.
This Frankenstein has some potential. Just haven't dove into it yet.
do the Williams spoons need any modifications?
Nice looking game. People seem to bag on Frankenstein quite a bit. What do you think of the game play?
I shopped and modded it for someone, so got to play it quite a bit. I wasn't a big fan of it after getting a lot of games on it. I like Sega pins, but this one didn't do it for me.
Make sure everything moves freely. Novus2 the spoons, new sleeves, & set a 1mm gap on the switches. Mine are thunderous on all of my DE/Sega. Had that problem with all of them. Not anymore.
