Quoted from dashv:

I may be about to joint this club!
Gonna put hands on tomorrow. Love the game but gotta check out the condition.
Any advice on things specific to this game that I should look out for or ask the current owner about?

Hope you can sleep tonight haha

The drop targets usually don’t work as designed, a simple fix on the power supply by resoldering the pins on the back of the power supply

Look for broken ramps, and wear on the playfield, otherwise just normal stuff.

If it's got the original mylar protector it'll probably have some bubbles, and dimples on the left lane and center play field where the ball drops down—but those are pretty much inevitable for a 30+ year old game, so doubtful it'll affect your decision.

As noted above, drops are probably the most vulnerable mechanic. Optos can die so switches don't register, coils can get gunky so they don't reliably reset. But those can be readily fixed with $7 opto and a $0.75 coil sleeve, so again... probably won't affect your decision.

Really, all you need to know is whether it can LIONMAN!!

Thanks for the advice folks. It has some Mylar bubble and the drop under the mini playfield is down to the wood! But I got it anyway. It was 3k and the guy was willing to drop it off at house!

It plays great but needs some love.

I tore down as much as I could and cleaned up the playfields with napthpha then blitzed it up and put it back together.

I only had to replace a couple of bulbs.

I think it looks pretty good for its age and its wickedly fast.

I ordered:
New rubbers
New balls
Operators manual with schematics
Gold legs, levelers, bolts
Playfield protector to prevent further wear
New translight (existing one has some holes from bulbs melting it)
New speaker grill plastic (existing one has a chunk cut out of it)
New plastics
New decals
Side art blades.

I appear to be missing at least a few playfield ornaments. But I am not sure what. Maybe some folks here can help me identify?

Also the front of the cab was repaired and painted black but the sides are fine. I can’t seem to find a place that lets me order the art package a la carte. I just want/need the front. :-/

Now I gotta walk through the thread from the start and see if any neat mods exist for this game.

Check the ramps over well for any cracks and damage (new ones available from Freeplay40)....
Check the upper playfield to lower playfield chute (it's 2 screws removed from the bottom of the main playfield) the chute is almost always broken
I didn't see a lot of mention of the boards - so check those over well - Power Supply caps, alkaline damage on the MPU, burns at the interconnect - the usual things.
Cliffy does make ramp protectors

We do offer a simple 'mod' ...we remade the drop target decals and they are color-coded - so instead of just being orange - each drop matches the color of the playfield lanes and lights above....just PM me for that....

Thanks. I grabbed the multi-color targets the other day from here:
https://www.thepinballwizard.net/playfield-parts/swords-of-fury-drop-target-mod-set-of-5/

Are those yours?

I’m having a hard time finding stickers for the spinner.

Also, I’m not sure about getting a replacement ramp. I like the look of the clear but mine seems to be in okay shape and I’d rather not ship it off and chance losing it or have my game down for a few weeks.

#1406 32 days ago

The spinner decals are available - search for Mikonis (or zonaarcade I think as well) - I think he's posted them in this club as well as on pinside - he makes most of the decals for the pin...

We make just the color coded decals on the drops - what you ordered are the drop targets AND the decals that go on them...if your drops are in good condition - our decals are only $6USD (that includes shipping!)

I added quite a few upgrades to mine if you want to take a look for ideas:

Quoted from nerdygrrl:

Finally, after close to a year it is complete! I am having some flipper issues that I need to sort out. I am hoping it's nothing major. I have some wonky stuff going on. Prior to the flipper install all was well so I will have to go back and look over the wiring. Aside from that it's just not registering a ball drain. Hopefully it will be playable by Sunday! Lionman!

How did you get your wire forms blue like that? Did you send out to a place?

Where did you send them?

We’re you happy with the results?

How have they held up?

Robert stone did them.... Very happy..... Held up perfectly......I like black for the color....I tend to like things to blend in than stand out....

I wish I had found this thread before this mod was retired! Looks so sweet! Great job.

#1413 25 days ago

Almost done depopulating!

Then sending to CaptainNeo

#1414 23 days ago

Well. Playfield is fully depopulated… except…

I noticed a mini post missing from the spinner horseshoe area when I bought the game. Closer inspection shows it must have snapped off a long time ago. How do I get the rest of it out of there?

Also, can someone please confirm it’s a mini post? I think it’s Marco part #02-3905.

Also, most of my post studs snapped off in the tnuts so I need to get all new ones of those. I think part #02-9899.

Mine was snapped of exactly the same way...i had to drill it out with a small drill bit, but it was a pain in the a**.
It is the same post as it is between the flippers.

I’ll have to buy a better bit than the ones I have. I already snapped a bit trying to drill out a tnut.

Easily drilled it out with a cobalt bit. Unfortunately the person that tried to get it out of there before me wore the screw hole unevenly. So now a replacement wood screw post will go in slanted.

I think I’m going to just drill the hole a bit larger so I can go with a beefier post and washer/hex nut it down from under the playfield. Should never snap again.

Excellent - sounds like a good plan...

Update, trim and ball wire guides removed and going out to Robertstone0407 for powder coating (Gold Vein).

Clear ramps from Freeplay40 have arrived.
Art Blades arrived (will install today!)

NeoSkywalker is working on restoring/clear coating the playfield.

I’m touching up the cab artwork and polishing all the playfield metals.
