Quoted from Averell:

Today I drill in the missing hole for the left bulb in the right guide lane... I wonder why they didn't drill it at the factory?

Just noticed this on mine! What size bit did you use, do you remember?

This part was thrown in with some other extra parts when I purchased my game. I didn't see it anywhere on my game, so I thought it must belong to some other game.

I just came across the shop out guide on pinwiki, and now i see it goes in back of the skull.

Can anyone speak to it's purpose? Game seems to play perfectly fine without it.

Does anyone have detailed pictures of how to install it?

Thanks for any help.

If you read this entire thread, there are pics and discussions about this part. Leave it off, not needed at all

Now the BackPlex is nearly finished and the LED backlight is already working.
I only have to install the protective strip, but it must be modified and powder coated first.

This is really cool. Since this is the state of my T2 I will definitely do this mod to it.

Great work!

When I turn my game on , it says L2. Latest chipset available for T2 seems to be L8, but I don’t see any history of the chip changes. Am I reading my game correctly that it could use an updates chip?? Seems like the sound chip is good but I’m putting in a pinsound board.

Need help.
I am in doubt about the rubbers/posts on my game. I think mine might have been changed from stock at some point.
Should there be one or two large rubbers between the two posts?

Mine only had one - but I have a feeling there should be two?

#7660 10 days ago

It is a bit tricky, but I had the same problem.
You need two double star posts in that area.
This is the correct "construction".

Just tore mine down. Averell is right.

And consider the outer red lane guides.
The have flaps only on the inside... in that case you have a better illuminiation next to the plastics.
Often lane guides with two flaps will be used but that's not how the machine left the factory.

#7663 10 days ago

I finished hand polishing all the ball guides and re-installing them. I'm almost ready to start moving the bottom side over.

The last guide on the right is installed I just took the pic before it was done :/

Thank you.
All mine had two flaps As you said. But changing that to stock as well
I guess it was duo to limited parts by the operator.

How much is it worth? 50$? or is that too much?

#7671 9 days ago

people pay big money for the arnie plastic

#7672 9 days ago

If someone is willing to make a template for the clear plastic around the left side of skull, I could make my own clear plastic.

Thanks

Feel stupid...
How do I change the coil on this mech?
I can’t figure it out and would like not to break anything.

There is a small roll pin on the black VUK, just use small pliers or a roll pin punch, and pull it out, then assembly breaks down easy, see my pic

I just finished cleaning my recently acquired T2, it came out nice but I have a couple of tweaks that still need to be worked out. First, my drop target fires 6 times when it goes up. I looked at the switch and its working but there is another small coil and not really sure what that does so maybe thats the problem, any advice though? Also, my cannon fires about as hard and fast as a real cannon, is there a way to adjust that?

Also, my cannon fires about as hard and fast as a real cannon, is there a way to adjust that?

The small coil is used when the game needs to pull the drop target down. The drop target has a small edge that holds it up and is spring loaded such that if either the ball hits the target or the small coil is triggered then the spring will pull the target down.

If the main coil is firing multiple times then the game isn't seeing the drop target in the up position - normally this a switch issue. The switch position probably needs adjusting. Go into test mode and check the status of the drop target switch, then in solenoid test drop the target and recheck the switch status. Then go back into solenoid test and raise the target and again check the switch status.

As for the cannon, check if it has the right coil as specified in the manual

#7682 4 days ago

As far as I can tell it does not say what size coil in the manual anywhere. Can anybody tell me the correct coil?

Just got down shopping out my newly acquired T2. This was my first go around at shopping out a pin. It was a good learning experience for me. I've been looking for one for a long time. I replaced all the plastic pedestals with new ones, added Titan bands throughout, replaced all bulbs to LED that were not. Added some chrome to the backboard edge, added a red DMD filter, replaced any broken plastic with new ones (not many) replaced all screws to new shinny ones. Cleaned and waxed the play field. Waiting on bright eye mod for the skull. I've attached some pictures below.

Thanks for looking,
Pete

Nice job! I recently just did my newly acquired game as well. The eye LEDs are a must I would say for this pin.

Now that your game is all clean, it’s Payback time!!

Has anyone installed this or similar?
https://www.pinball.center/en/shop/pinball-parts-by-game/terminator-2/9434/playfield-protector-for-terminator-2

I got a new repro playfield with nice clear coat. But the protector is “cheap” and I am thinking about if it is a good idea to add even more protection?
Or is it overkill and have some kind of negative effect on the game..

Waste of money if game has clear coat. Why risk a product that may yellow over time. No way.
