Taxi has been around for about a month now. The flippers "appear" to have been rebuilt by the previous owner. While they have enough power to make the ramp shots just fine, they seem a bit mushy. I cant hear the crack of the coil stop like I do on my Earthshaker.
Hard to explain, but I feel.they could be more responsive. I'm debating on doing another complete rebuild my way.
Thoughts?

If they are original flipper bracket (with the spring on the coil), upgrading to the newer WPC with “external” spring will give it more snap.

But yep, worth taking a look at the coil stops.

Thanks. I was actually considering switching to external springs. It does seem like the conical ones around the plunger bind up a bit.

Thanks for clarifying.

New to the club. Mine has seen better days but is in the process of being deep cleaned. I would love to do a hardtop but other than paint being faded its not in that bad of shape. I have to source the missing displays, and luckily I found both ramps from other owners because the flashers locked on and melted both of them.

Wish me luck!

Deep cleaned, added new Titan rubber, new LED displays, and new ramps. I found a hackjob in the backbox and had to replace a few connectors on the interconnect board. I got new insert decals included with the game but havent decided if I want to put them on or not.

Shes running great again! I seen that a true mirrored glass is going to be available soon. Hopefully that is still in the works. I would much rather have Marilyn on the backglass to match my playfield.

Now to put my time into the F14 restoration I have been sleeping on.

CPR released a mirrored glass about 5 years ago. I have one. The colours aren’t great on it though. Almost looks a little “soft focus” if that makes sense. Still nice though. And as I had a CPR playfield I needed a Marylin glass to match the pf.

Welp... fried some transistors on my Aux driver board today. Anyone have a schematic showing what components these larger transistors supply?

Im gonna try to toss new parts in it and see what happens. But I may eventually go with the Xpin AUX board that has upgraded MOSFET tech for the occasional faults that plague the old original boards.

If anyone is interested in buying the original AUX board (D-12247-566) please PM me.

The transistors are Tip36C, the resistors are 220ohm, 1/4 watt. Drawing is attached.

I believe Q1-Q4 are for the displays, but I am not certain, just going from this drawing of the aux board since those transistors are not shown as solenoid drivers.

Here is the solenoid table.

That's the schematic for the power supply, not the aux driver... The aux driver board schematic looks like this:
