I'm putting the finishing touches on my Space Mission finally after reassembling the playfield, putting on the protector, and cleaning up the glass. Almost to the testing / debugging phase ..
- My spinning target is tilted too far forward at rest. I found a few threads from searching where people describe bending something in the frame to adjust the angle it sits at. Can someone clarify what exactly needs to be adjusted for this? Is it the wire 'axle' that it's spinning on? Or the outer metal frame that goes around the spinner?
- What is the best way to straighten / line up score reel digits relative to each other? Mine seem slightly wavy on a couple players. With the way the units lock into place in the backbox, and with the way the reels are screwed into place on the units, it doesn't seem like there is room for adjustment. I cleaned all 16 of them and don't recall anything being adjustable in how the mechanism fits together. Hmm?
I plan to poke around both of these later, and maybe it will become obvious. But if anyone has tips I'll take them!
