So. many. things. wrong with this game. I swear, whoever had this game before me should never touch a pinball machine again! Messed up soldering jobs, messed up wiring, wrong screws too long, or don't fit properly. I'm seriously surprised this thing plays. They cut off the connector for the GI, and soldered together all of the solid colored wires and the striped wires and put a twist connector on them. Why!? Who the hell knows.
All pops and flippers rebuilt this weekend using the PROPER hardware. I discovered why the screw blew through the playfield. It was because the jackass used an inch long wood screw to secure the coilstop for the upper flipper to the playfield! WOW you dip! lol
Just had to vent. She's slowly coming back together, but it's been a frustrating experience trying to work through all of the previous idiot's hackjobs.
Recapped the power supply and had a helluva time desoldering and replacing the relay. I ordered new connectors for the hacked wires, so I won't know if the GI works yet, since that plug was for the GI out from the PSU. In time it will be done, and working.
One thing I did notice is that after rebuilding all of the flippers, the lower left flipper has a difficult time getting the ball up through the 8-ball shot. There's no binding of the mech, everything is cleaned. I had to clean and readjust the contacts on the flipper switch for that side. I'll have to check the EOS switch also but wondering if that was related? I could probably replace both flipper switches since they're pretty beat.
