Looking for a players condition Shadow in the Chicagoland/southern Wis/West Indy area...…..

Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

I have a few custom wood grips left.....theres a link, next to my avatar.

I highly recommend this mod.

Quoted from BENETNATH:

Hi,
I'm facing an issue with the mini-target that gives access to the mini-playfield.
If i push it by hand, it stays up ; but in test or during game, it never manages to raise up enough to be stuck in high position.
Can someone share some pictures on the shaft + coil + switch to try to set it right ??
thanks

someone, please ?

#5854 5 months ago
Quoted from Johncare07:

Does anyone have a lead on where to get the gun grip replacements? Is there a way you can use a real gun grip as a substitute?

I got @oldpinguy wooden grips (highly recommended). But DM me about taking my old plastic grips off my hands.

#5855 5 months ago

Thank you!
Shipped out today!

I have about 9 sets left, and thats it!

Robs been busy doing designs for celebrity custom desks and boxes...ill have to get a link for the last one....made for a host of a tv knife/blade weapon show, I think.

#5856 5 months ago

Im almost in guys....got one in my sights.....

Whats your favorite powder coat color scheme?

Ive seen green legs with black rails and bar, all purple, etc.

I thought I wanted all black but the purple looks pretty awesome...

all black looks great.

#5859 5 months ago

For The Shadow I like the chrome quite a lot. Because of that, it's not something I'd invest in for this title, but if someone were to gift me any option I wanted, I'd probably do an antique brass.

I have seen chrome, brass, and black nickel trim on shadow, the black nickel looked the best. It was mine and I sold it a couple years ago.

Its really not that expensive. Like $200 or less I think.

Oooo chrome does look nice. Id want to do black or purple wireforms then probably.

Got my game in. Wow, what an upgrade all the service rails and spring loaded playfield hinges make. Feels like such luxury.

Found a few probs.

Left sling isnt firing. Wiring looked good.

Left phurba is missing the spring and its a bit loose. The allens need tightening i think.

Other than that, it plays great. Love the flow on this game.

I need a manual... i think theyre free online right?

You need some springs, I put 2 springs on each of mine. Prevents any loose play.

Game looks good! Minor issues.

You can DL the manual from IPDB.

Sweet, Ill download it today.

Any one know if this is the right spring for the phurba mech? One guide said it was but Marco doesnt have it listed as compatible...

#5868 5 months ago

Alright, got my manual downloaded. Looks like 10-320 IS the correct spring. My local pinball supplier doesnt have it in stock. Does any one know if there are any readily available alternatives I could use? They have other springs that look close....

Sorry I am blowing this club up guys, just really excited to have a new game.

Are these the purple domes you all use for the back panel and above the ramps?

https://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/03-8149-18

#5869 5 months ago

2 questions.
I'm running LA-4. Is it worth getting a LA-6 stick?
My left ramp has a break in the left roll through and a popped weld under the right side. What are your feelings toward either having it spot welded at a shop or getting mantis ramps? I read a little bit saying that the mantis ramps dont feel right.
Thanks

#5870 5 months ago

Did the gun in a silver powder coat with a red trigger. Really came out nice.

I decided to the the habitrails in purple. Very pleased.

yes for ramps, I use the red ones on the back wall but I have the brick scene.

#5873 5 months ago

Cool thanks for the info johncare07

I like the purple. Can you post a pic of them on the playfield?

Can any one with the brite buttons lighted flipper buttons tell me how they stacked their power for these? They already piggyback off a connector in the backbox, so what about with the two sets of buttons?

Didnt realize the buttons got so expensive. They must have gone up in quality or design in the last 6 years since I bought a set. They were like 19.99 before now theyre $39.99. Of course we need TWO lol.

marco has a suitable alternative spring. I bought some a few weeks ago. Let me see if I can find my packing list.

Marco had the actual spring. I ordered it this morning. 3 actually.

cool, I have had several shadows. I always put 2 springs on if there is any play. Sometimes you can have the set screws super tight and there is still some wiggle and it slows the ball down.

Good tip!

Any tips on the ring bulbs? My left most ring goes out unless i push/bend the wires a little on the back of the bulb.

So, the saga continues...

Fuse F112 blows when I turn the machine on with the door closed. It doesn't blow if I turn the machine on with the door open. So, I imagine it has something to do with high power, coils, etc.

After investigating under the playfield, it doesn't look like anything is loose e.g. wires or diodes.

Any suggestions as to what I should do to troubleshoot from here? Any insights you can provide would be much appreciated!

Im new to this game, but maybe the bridge rectifier before the fuse is bad?? Im not sure on the direction of the flow of power in this diagram.

Im going to try and fix this one first. Im trying to save for a color dmd and powder. $40 ring seems silly when I could probably fix it for now.

you don't need the ring, you need the wiring. see link below. You can still probably fix it.

If I hadnt already made a marco purchase I would throw this in too.

Ill report back if I can fix it. Finger crossed.

LOVE my sticker from you, JB! Where did you get the purple flasher lenses?

#5890 5 months ago
Quoted from Chitownpinball:

lighted flipper buttons .. now theyre $39.99. Of course we need TWO lol.

Just make your own.

Clear flipper buttons - $1.75 each
Lamp holder - $1 each
LED - 50c each

5 minutes to run wires from the coin door light to the lamp holders.

Easy peasy.

PS I just noticed that Pinball Life has the brite button ones for $29 if you’re too lazy to make some.

I just joined the club and what's the easiest way to fix this switch? It seems like about 1/3 of the time the ball will jump over the switch. The switch works perfectly. I had a similar issue with White Water and I had my friend make me a plastic that went over top of a ramp to keep the ball down. I just didn't know what most people do for this switch?

Flick through the recent pages of this thread, it’s been covered a number of times, Rotadave in particular posted a few times about this very matter.

That guy is half way through making a clear Perspex extension to move the switch further along (as per the photo on my previous posts)

Only issue is the Shadow is in my apartment and I’m in my house for a few weeks. So progress is stalled.
