Quoted from scootss:

Thinking of picking one up. I've heard transport is hard(er than a standard pin) because the head doesn't fold out. But I see many happily riding around in SUVs in this thread. So is the solution just to take the top cowl with the speakers off? Is this attached by bolts?
thanks.

Yes, two bolts, two cables to unplug, and it comes off.

Very easy to get the top off and reattach. A few other things to consider as I just brought mine home a few weeks ago. This thing is HEAVY. I don't know how, but it's heavier than a regular WPC game, and mostly on the head side. Not sure how you plan to move it, but be ready. If there is a card catcher, you'll want to take that off too so it can sit flat on a dolly and in your car.

Yes, the top comes off quite easily.

Ground wires attached to a post with a wire nut.

Whole thing takes 3 minutes to pull. It is thiner than a pin with the head folded down.

Fixing my slugfest and everything seems to be working, but the magnet.

Magnet test, works fine.

Pitch test the ball tosses, magnet never activates. Is there a switch that is not being tripped to activate the magnet?

Quoted from laxgoalie1288:

Hello again! I finally was able to get my hands on a dispenser but now I'm facing another issue, It won't plug into the machine! I opened up my cabinet and saw what I assumed to be the line plgu that was just sitting there not attached to anything near where the card dispenser would be. So when I bought the dispenser and saw that it's about 3 feet too short from getting to the motherboard. I was pretty discouraged. Can anyone help me in my construction or offer any tips about what I need to do or what I might be missing?
Thanks!

The line from my dispenser is about 27" long from the back of the dispenser and plugs into a harness with a connector inside the machine right by the dispener casing

Putting this up in case anyone encounters it.

The issue was the disc that interrupts the opto for the pitching arm had been put on incorrectly. It can only fit on one of two ways. Taking it off and turning it 180 degrees solved the problem. Before the magnet was activating, but way too late for the magnet to affect the ball.

Quoted from Bcollins1028:

Just got my game and joined the club. Was playing fine for the first few days, went to play a game today and it keeps throwing 2-3 balls every time a pitch is thrown. Has anyone experienced the pitching arm going around too many times? What is the fix?

See if the plexiglas playfield is warped by where the pitchers mound is. If it is bumped up the ball will not pitch right.
