Here are some good pictures http://christopherhutchins.com/gallery/album531 skip to page 18 for closeups of the playfield.
Im interested in this as well..... mine has two hex spacers connected together with a screw coming up from under the playfield to secure them.

Side note..... has anyone tried calling that number? I really want a whirlwind t-shirt!!!
But my pinball machine said it was only $9.95 !!!!
Thank you sir! On my Christmas list now!
I used some white lithium grease on my wheels and it definitely quieted down a bit. That said, not worth it, as all the dirt stuck to the wheels and ended up being a mess. I would just leave them if you can tolerate the noise. Im still looking for Dynamat on the cheap, its really the best shot at quieting this thing down (ive got two little ones in the house and i need to be quiet at night, lol).
Quoted from mof:
Another set of blades here. Tough choice between the two options.
Missed that post!
It is a tough choice for sure. I like them both but am leaning towards the ones toyotaboy has.
Quoted from KingDaddy:
Question, I was playing this morning and a small part of one of the Yellow Oblong Target Faces broke off... I've been looking for a replacement and can't find. The closest is this - but all I really need is the plastic target itself (and not sure this is even the right part, might be for newer Bally/Williams):
I ordered this exact part from Marcos, then drilled out the rivets and reversed the bracket. Only took two minutes as i had some extra screws to put it back together.
On the list for (another) one!
Not happy about the crazed inserts in the CPR i have and after i swap cabinets, this Pf will be the only bad thing about the game. So decided to bite the bullet and get another.
Heres a cool little trick I just learned on my own. I was replacing my optos and having issues afterwards. I knew there was no way to visually see the optos working with the naked eye. I wondered if my phone would pick them up.... Sure did!
OK now I'm in the same boat..... Verified optos are working still reporting a switch error. Is there a way of resetting this error?
Try my phone trick?
When I go into test mode switch edges... It just keeps cycling through all theee optos. Its like I'm hitting all three at once. Weird. Thoughts anyone? Bueller?
Ok optos work. Resistors and diodes all check out. Checked all traces... Everything good. Maybe I put the optos in backwards? Thoughts?
thanks for the tip metahugh What i didnt realize is that the optos work in reverse logic. Meaning that they are open when the light path is broken and closed when the path is clear. After giving up and re-installing the opto board, everything worked.
Except now i have the random kickout of the locked balls when playing, guess i broke one of the switches in the lock trough. Tried to solder as recommended above, no dice. Sigh, the life of a pinballer, the work is never done...... Over to Marcos for some new switches.
Thanks again all!
