Quoted from Craig:

I have all of our System 11 pins in one corner of the basement:

I like how you painted the stainless black on the High Speed, well done! I put in the same clear flipper buttons you have there with the matching clear shooter rod.

Also what are signing up for? Is this the place we will come for our System 11 problems since a lot of folks have HS, I will post here instead of the main forum. I signed up last month.

I was thinking this thread is simply a good place to just build a directory to find "active" System 11 owners for trades/swaps/etc... perhaps we just put our names in here, and keep the chatter low so that the thread doesn't reach 100 pages too quickly... =)

I would still use the tech forums for issues, so that we don't bloat this directory with too many side threads. Also, you'll get more people chiming in that don't "own" system 11's that can help as well.

Quoted from MustangPaul:

Sounds like a winner. Gonna LED it? That really saves the power supply and the home electric useage bill.

Yup, just picked up a Cointaker kit today. I'll probably start by just replacing a few bulbs that are out until I get the hang of it. I also picked up new rubbers, fuses & a remote battery holder. It also doesn't hurt being about 30 minutes away from Pinball Life.

I'd like to find another system 11 machine in fair condition that I can restore, but more importantly learn on.

Good for you. Now your fun is starting. Just make sure you have a magnetic nut driver for changing the insert bulbs, makes life A LOT easier.

Bally williams had become one by system 11. Both used this flexible processor for many games in the late 80's early 90's

Sold my RG but still have, and will keep my Bad Cats.

Going to rebuild the flippers adding the springs but curious as to whether you could just order:
http://www.pinballlife.com/index.php?p=product&id=172

Prices have gone up, no longer are the Sys 11's $36, but even at $40 per assembly, it isn't bad.

I really enjoy the process of disassembling, cleaning, and reassembling the flipper assemblies. I took the cheaper route, and just bought a bunch of upgrade kits. I have found that the old coils on all my machines seem to work fine, and all the old brackets seem fine as well, so I saved a little bit of money there. I will, however suggest getting extra coil-brackets for $1.50 each since those wear a lot, and sometimes don't have the divet when you flip the coils around... So in short, I didn't see the need to buy the whole assembly put together. It's nice to learn how things are all put together. So I got the arm kit + bushing + coil bracket. This skips/saves rebuying coil+main bracket.

I've got 7 of 9 machines done... So close...
It's totally night and day once you complete them.

#277 7 years ago

I was considering doing the full assembly route as well but when I stopped by pinballlife, Terry talked me out of it and had me get just what I needed.

#278 7 years ago

I can't find the assembly's for my HS at PBL. They have every thing but.

#279 7 years ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

I can't speak to HS, but for GL, which is also 1986 -- I had to grab 2 flipper brackets with the cap bracket on there, since GL's brackets didn't have 'em. From there, add parts as needed. So if HS is like GL, that might be why you wouldn't get an all-in-one -- not sure if that was your goal.

Here's the rebuild kit that's for High Speed, I installed these 3 years ago on my HS! No issues! I had to buy some flipper bushings but I had other things to get on my order so it did not matter. http://www.pinballlife.com/index.php?p=product&id=975

Here's the complete set of links to UPGRADE your flippers to WPC Fliptronics-era flippers. (note: If you have a system 11A or earlier, you will likely be missing the capacitor bracket in your flipper bracket assembly, and you'll need new brackets as well (#6.)

Thanks Jeff and mof. Now you've got me wondering what's the dif. btw the stock rebuild kit and the changing over to the Fliptronics set up.

It's all described here from Vid1900:
http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/vids-guide-to-upgradingrebuilding-flippers
Bottom line is the springs. Do you want them bunching up, or always free and tight? The new design from 1992+ is much better. Feels snappier. Sounds snappier. Also you have more control with the newer flipper mech style. I'll put a video up later that shows the difference.

-mof

#287 7 years ago

Hmmm...I bought the kit for my right upper flipper which seemed a little weak but did not plan on redoing the main flippers. I may see how the rebuild goes on the upper right and then get the upgraded flips for my mains.

Thanks for the info and links.

Thanks mof, I've got enough projects going so I would get the entire assembly, with 3 flippers to do and only $40 each it would save me alot of time. Three question though, which game, which coil and which stop?

Ya basically, look at your JM machine's flippers. Your other three games can feel that good.

#293 7 years ago

My HS is coming along pretty well but was unable to overcome a little snag. Looking for suggestions:

I have all my music but no sounds or voice. I have replaced the big capacitor on the PCB when I changed out a couple of others to get my display working properly. That did not help so I took a shot in the dark and bought new sound and voice ROMs. Just installed them today and no luck.

Any suggestions? I've thought about changing out the sound board altogether. I'm pretty new at this stuff and don't have enough experience or 'feel' to know what to check or how to check it.

Thanks for the input if you have any...

#294 7 years ago

Wish I could help. Replacing the sound board sounds like a good idea. How much are they? I have HS also and am watching how you fix your problem, it could happen to me someday. I'm rootin you on.

#295 7 years ago

I just completed my first ever total shop job. Got everything reinstalled this morning. Except for the wear spots, every thing is look SOOO much better!. I installed LEDs in the backbox and on the playfield. Hopefully will be able to get the insert LEDs installed tonight.

After that, I'll only be lacking the sound/callouts and the police light to fix. Thanks for your encouragement.

Your way ahead of me, re-stenciling the front of mine and what a PAIN! I have a feeling it's going to turn out looking like crap.

#297 7 years ago

I am in a bind. I need to sell one or two pins to make space. Maybe the Diner? It would be tough to do, but I would like to get my first NIB, and I have no place to put it.

PM me if you're genuinely interested, especially if you could see it for yourself and pick it up in NC. I am not so sure about this move that I want to put up an ad just yet. I won't try to make a dime on it. Indeed, I'd be losing at the least what it cost me to get it here.

I always knew it would come to this. Breaking up is hard to do! Honestly, I really need to get rid of one or two more, but I have to start somewhere.

I know that trying to do some major cabinet work is above my skill level. I'm taking baby steps and so far I've learned a few things in the process which has been fun. 6 months ago I never thought I'd be changing out caps on a power board, but I've done it now and it actually fixed something.

I guess worst case scenario for me is that I have a working game which is missing the sounds and voice and the beacon light. I guess those can be addressed at some point in the future if I cannot figure out a fix.

Wood working is really simple, getting it ready for the stencil is easy, it's using the brand of stencils I'm using is what sucks, no registration marks to go by, the application paper is WAY to sticky, there is NO overlaping of the colors like on the original games so the registration has to be PERFECT and to top it off when they numbered the stencils for order of application they got the order numbers wrong, which I caught.

Have you thought about sending your sound board in and have someone troubleshoot it?
