AC/DC Ball trough optos due to the central green wire being disconnected from its connector but not completely so it appeared to be fine. A light pull and out it came.
Here after it was reinserted.
FG Right Flipper due to many things
Here the Link to Pawl bolt snapped its head off
To repair this the base plate had to come off and it was found that the coil stop screw holes were stripped so the bolts holding the coil stop on were held with locknuts ugh.
To make matters worse the flipper bushing had sheared off on the playfield end. Without replacement parts I had to dig through an assortment of used pawls and links to rebuild the mech we did have a new baseplate that had to have everything new installed on it.
To give an idea of the amount of play these machines get I just cleaned this machine LAST NIGHT and this was the state of all four that were cleaned LAST NIGHT.
Note the ball trail and haze of filth along each side
Look at Stewies face and the rest of the area all filthy
Here on the right I just started cleaning again so you can see how dirty the machine got in one night of use.
TSPP ramp switch due to wire form gate being stuck up
Gate was stuck because mounting bracket got bent in towards it
Again Machine was cleaned last night.
CSI Scoop Switch due to broken actuator. Because of horrible design getting to this switch is a nightmare even thou you can see it in the clear but look how the mounting screws are. Note the heads face towards all of the wiring and assemblies Duh.
To access them the simple solution would be to remove the scoop assembly no big deal right? Wrong to do this you would have to remove the upper playfield ramp and two sets of plastics first which cover the ramp mounting screws. NUTs I say.
The other way to get to this switch is to remove the drop down target assembly by first loosening the three lamp sockets which get in the way of doing so.
Now you can have access to the screw heads after removing the insert socket as well . Here you can finally see the screw heads and note they are different someone got there paws in here at one time.
Here you can see the insert lamp socket that had to come out to it dropped between the two 44 sockets in the pic.
Now with micro surgeon precision you can maneuver between all of the wires and reach in to get to the screw heads. Finally the switch is removed which could have been done in seconds had it been mounted from the other side. Like I said bad design.
Here is the new and old switch
Didn't get time to go over PZ but here are pics of the state of the wire harness
Can someone say GI Short?
Most connectors were changed out with new IDC at one time without lockout pins and with horrible markings that didn't match up and a lot of the connectors are also broken.
Duct tape was used to mark many connectors needless to say gooey glue is all over the harness its a real sticky mess.
Did a bomb go off in here? Note some connectors just floating around for fun
