Just had a "Pinshaker" shaker motor installed at the York pinball show by robgo777 .
Gotta say what a huge difference it makes to game play. It's hooked up the the (Space) (Shuttle) flashers so will run when locking a ball or hitting the center ramp. I now have it running with the bell also. So it integrates with game play very well.
As far as the installation went. It's very simple. Since this was the first system 9 he did he didn't have the correct plug for the 110 line so just plugged it into the service outlet. two small jumper boards were installed at J12 and J19. Then a small controller board was added in the backbox. Finally Shaker motor itself was installed. One thing to note was with the system 9 bottom board of the cap is only 1/4". The T nuts that push up though to mount the shaker are about 5/8" Since we were installing at the show we just turned them upside down for temporary use. Permanent fix would be to mount a piece of 1/2" thick plywood between the motor and bottom board.

PS. Yeah I know I need to get a hard top for it.

Quoted from KSUWildcatFan:

That's rad AF. Got a video?

Kind of hard to video a game shaking with shaker motor. But as I said. It really really goes well with this game. When you have multi ball set and hit the center ramp to start multiball or complete the SHUTTLE targets to sound the bell it's like the Space Shuttle is taking off. You won't be disappointed.
If you go to www.pinshakers.com they don't have system 9 on their list yet since this was their first install. You will have to contact them to get the kit. I know one other person that played the game at the show has requested one for his Space Shuttle. I'm sure the site will be updated soon.

Just wanted to point out. On the Pinshakers controller board I have pins 1,2 and 7 turned on for flashers and bell.

I'm jumping off a damn cliff.[quoted image][quoted image]

Had similar thing happen to me day before taking it to a show. Checked everything at least 3 times. Was so frustrated I was just going to sell the game. Then I checked the connectors. LOL.

Quoted from ss-pinball:

Ok, I gotta ask.
I'm looking for a project Space Shuttle and not having luck.
Until today. Sort of.
I have a line on a cabinet.
I'd need a complete board set, a populated playfield and a back glass...and a coin door.
The harnesses are there.
What are the chances that I could find what I need within a couple of months and at what prices?

Next to impossible... The system 9 cpu board is hard to find and expensive. You could run off a system 11 board with modified roms though. Still looking at $400 for that one board alone. And then you still have to find a playfield. My honest opinion would be not to get it unless you’re willing to wait years to find all the parts. And you’re gonna have more into it then just buying a working game.

Just wanted to point out. You really should turn the game off before digging in that area. I know it’s a pain but couldn’t count how many times people short stuff out adjusting popbumpers.

Bad ground
Bad caps
Bad roms
Are the three most common cause of the hum.
