I sold the ramp assemblies to jardine

Quoted from trk12fire:

I looked through my box of parts that ThatOneDude gave me and no luck on a motor.

No problem, thanks anyways. I've order one of these off Marco...hopefully it fits....looks identical:

Ok I'm starting to pull my hair out on these carnival lights. I swear that there is a relay or fuse or setting somewhere that is preventing them from working but damn if I can find it. I am more than open for suggestions. I have 20vdc at the bulbs (both header and up front) and in the flash test mode homers head works but the other 7 don't. I guess it's possible that all 7 transistors blew up but I find it unlikely. Past that I can't find a common link between all of the carnival lights.

When I got my machine, a lot of flasher bulbs were blown. I’m just making sure you checked the obvious and tried replacing the bulbs.

I couldn't believe that EVERY bulb other than the ones in the back of the playfield were out so I took a known good one from the back of the playfield and started testing sockets......... are you freaking me........ EVERY single carnival bulb was out, like EVERY ONE, not even a single one worked on the entire game.

That did uncover that line 1 is hard on so I am guessing Q25 is bad and needs replaced but I can easier believe that one transistor needs replacing over 21 bulbs.......

Haha, at least it’s an easy fix.

I swear if I buy another "unique" machine from auction no matter how good a deal it is just shoot me. The used ramp motors I got both work (yay). The one (yes one) in the game does not. Bart motor tries to energize but just makes a humming noise so I'm hoping it is just jammed up somewhere. Replaced the blown shaker motor fuse and now it runs non-stop so adding a Q1 to the online order list.

I am either going to get this thing working, play it for a month and then part it back out or keep it forever at this point.

I had a fix for Bart at the beginning of the forum. There’s an Allen screw behind the skateboard that gets loose. Hopefully it’s not the motor.

Does anybody have a leg leveler sitting around or know of another machine it was used on that I could swap because I'm not getting any results on the part number ?. I have one with a bent shaft. Thanks

Do you have a picture?

The description is - Leg Leveler 1/2-13 3-3/4"L with nut CH-0066-003-00A. I'm guessing that these were used on any game that had casters and leg levelers (cranes etc). The part number isn't giving me any success however Amazon has a number of options based on the description.

I'm pretty sure I have those still. I'll check in the morning.

I ordered some (non stern but close in size) from a seller on Amazon that should be here today and "should" work but I'll check and see.

My left ramp motor is starting to go out. Sometimes the ramp stops moving and I have to hit it a few time to get it moving again. I’m thinking that maybe the capacitor next to the motor just needs to be replaced.

If anybody is looking to replace their leg levelers I got this set of 4 from Amazon and they seem to work. Note that they do not come with the locking nut if you don't have any. I got the 1/2-13 5" long ones because the stock ones are 3 3/4" but there doesn't seem to be any issues with the extra length.
