Quoted from schudel5:

Marco has the entire set including the defender targets. Fortunately they carry the Y and Z target separately, but unfortunately not the X. So if you want those you have to get the defender ones too in the set. I ended up replacing all the targets in mine and they are nice targets that drop well and never bricked for me at all.

Awesome. All mine need replaced. Guess I’ll go with Marco on this order.

Another thing I need to do is get new tall screws for the ECU plastic over the ball locks. My game is missing half of them. I’m gonna go to the hardware store but wasn’t sure if there was a better way than that. I typically take one to the store and try to find a match.

Quoted from JeffZee:

Hello Vector owners. I'm still looking for a better Vector picture for my Kmiec Red Post web page.

I restored the Kmiec red post sometime ago jeffzee but forgot to post.

I was under the impression that Vector had a translucent red finned post as opposed to the old solid red. I have not seen many Vectors so I'm not sure what the consensus might be.

No idea, I've had 3 original/tatty condition ones through my hands (in UK) and none of them had it. Perhaps it's the stuff of folklore but I like the idea of it being an EM post.

I’m BACK in the club. 1st game I’ve owned twice, which is telling. Missed it!

Playfield has issues and hoping a repro comes. Plays well and original plastics are much nicer than my last game. Backglass is perfect.

Note: mini flipper

Whilst packing up my loan VECTOR today for a new home I noticed the rebound post between the flippers, my project VECTOR doesn't have this post or a hole in the playfield where it would have been installed. Subsequently looking at online images it seems common to have it or not and the pf diagrams in the manual shows it.

I wonder what the story is here, perhaps it was supplied for operator fit to make the game easier and some just were never fitted, perhaps it got removed from production at a later stage. I'm not keen on screwing new holes in playfields, what's the concensus is it needed?

I am thinking of selling my Vector if anyone interested. Beautiful pf, auto cleared, perfect bg's, new driver board, new plastics, rubbers, and drops. All new lamp sockets. LEDs. Wiring at coin door could be cleaned up a bit. PM me for info.

For the 7 digit in the attached picture here, is this a repair I can do? Does it involve just freshening up the solder connections on the board? Or is it something a bit more elaborate and pricey?

as long as any digit works completely it can usually be fixed. read this to get an idea http://stevekulpa.net/pinball/bally_disp6r.htm

Taking a look at the page, it looks like some cold solder joints could use some freshening up. I know I had to do that to a small driver board on this, and after that, the wrong coils stopped firing. It became playable without unexpected multiball.

I have a feeling the non-working pop bumper is going to do a little more investigation.

Quoted from Aeolus7:

Note: mini flipper

Note: All production Vectors where made with the large flipper on the top mini playfield.
----- The production engineer in charge of the entire run of Vector, from the Bally plant,
----- made the final decision on the test white wood playfield, in order to get the ball out
----- of the area and balance the playfield flow. The center plastic on the top playfield
----- was raised med-through the production run to keep the ball from getting stuck
----- between the glass and plastic.
