So I finally started my work on this machine. The good. All the rubbers have been replaced. The bad. Macro's band set was missing 2 of the I think 5/16th size bands. The ones that go around the plastic posts. None were missing, I just think they don't know how many were needed.
But, lucky for me I had my set of sinbad and there were the same size ones that I needed. So when I order my replacement bands for Raven I'll just tack on 2 of the 5/16 that I need.
I also waxed the playfield. Really dirty. Doubt it was ever cleaned. I might do another quick wax tomorrow, as there was some debris that I missed or noticed when I was playing the game.
Playfield is in good shape considering how old it is. There is no wear, but lines in the paint finish. And the display sticks out a bit here and there, and also some of the inserts stick out a bit.
The good. All the mechs are working. Display is bright and all works.
The not quite so good. One of the flippers I think needs to be adjusted slightly. I don't know if its a power issue, I think its just misalinged and once I correct it, I think the power should be fine. It's already strong enough to hit all the shots. Its just a little wonky and weakish compared to the other one, and its pointing slightly down more than what the other one is. So I think a quick realignment might fix that.
The bad with that... I don't know how to realign a flipper. Guess that is one thing I shall be learning and soon.
There are some lights out. Not a lot. But, man they are hard to change. I can't quite figure it out.
Is there a tool I should buy that will make it easier on me?
The N for Night Moves seems to be out most of the time, but then it popped on a few times, but then back off. N never works in attract mode though.
The I seems to be working in attract mode but sometimes it doesn't work in game. And those are on a special board it looks like.
Any idea how to remove that board and/or change the lights on it?
And the battery. I don't think there is one currently in the machine. That is good. Now I just need to figure out which board is the one with the battery. I looked, and couldn't find it. But, I'll keep at it. As I will probably do the nvram.
Lastly. I got to level the game. So I'll look into that. Shouldn't be too hard. Just not a lot of space to manauver in my house.
All in all though. I'm really pleased at how well it now is playing. Its a fun game. Shoots good, plays good. Simple rules... That stinks. But, its fun.
I don't know how many hours I could or would want to play on it. But, I'm just happy its now a pinball machine and not just a table.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give. You guys already helped me out so much. As that Pal nut remover was totally worth the hassle to get, and I would have been doomed without it!
