Just got done finishing up my Taxi playfield swap, turned out great. I’ll be posting a for sale for an original Marilyn used unpopulated playfield soon if someone is interested in a restore as CPR playfields are tough to come by.

Looks great! How was the swap? Any components that were misplaced on the new PF or did things line up?

#1354 23 days ago

Everything lined up nicely, small tweek at the Gorbie hole. The spin out ramp now goes around 4x’s with a full plunge. Really brings out the fun factor, I was lucky to get a 25,000 x1 25% of the time.

#1355 20 days ago

Here are some pictures of the original Marilyn playfield I pulled from my game before the playfield swap, shoot me a pm if anyone is interested in buying this playfield. It has Mylar that could be removed from the bottom half of playfield, could be used for a restore or sand it down for a hardtop application or use it as wall art.

Taxi help requested: although good news is we got the bell working!
- all pop bumpers are dead, nothing during game or coil test.
-F3 fuse blows at power up, which is for these unless I'm mistaken
-everything else is functional, save the knocker which is missing.

Going through the thread here, I was going to start with replacing Q73,75,77 transistors. Bumper assemblies all appear in good physical order. No binding etc.
I remember mention of fusing the bumpers individually as a precaution, was going to do that to under the playfield.

Any other things I should be checking here?

#1357 19 days ago

Be sure and protect that middle plastic!

Wow! 4x is incredible. I'd like mine to go through twice and I'd be happy.

If anyone has a Taxi Cab plastic, the long one that fits across the plunger lane - my new one just cracked in two!!

#1360 15 days ago

Looking for a CPR Marilyn back glass for my upcoming restore project. Let me know if you have one to sell or know where I can order one.

#1361 9 days ago

So ordering the necessary parts to fix the boards and coils in case one is shorted. Before doing so, can a Taxi owner help me out with the following?
1. picture of bell wiring, as it is working, but looks like it was fixed creatively
2. picture of pop bumper wiring and what diodes etc are on that switch if you know.

Want to get this operating on the first crack hopefully.

Thank you!

Ok, so I am thinking of joining your fine club. Currently own some EM’s , a Blackout and STLE ; a real mix of styles so why not a System 11 right? What are the top three things I should look out for before buying and /or do to this pin to improve it?
Thanks a lot!

I just installed a Hardtop, and it plays fast and super smooth. I highly recommend it to anyone with a lost cause playfield; or anyone who wants a perfect playing Taxi. Kudos to Outside Edge!4C978E3D-756A-4EBD-9EDE-AEF1CFEDFAEF (resized).jpeg

I hope these help. The diodes should be 1n4004.

Yes, that will get us going for sure. It’s the first machine a buddy from work bought and the pops are dead so we will be starting with the drive trans on board and go from there. Just want to have a good reference so we can get it up and running. Thanks again

The spoon switch has a 22uF capacitor and a 100ohm resistor out of view in the pictures above.

I've found this a useful reference in the past: http://pinwiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Williams_System_9_-_11#Special_solenoid_problems
