I am doing a total WH20 restoration. Any cool mod or suggestions while it is easy to do?
New! Dark mode!
Browsing Pinside at night? Getting tired of all the white? Switch to dark mode using the button in the top right (or CTRL-B)!
I guess mine is no better on a lighter note, I am almost done with my complete renovation!
Huh, missed that! Thanks
*FL-15411 Flipper Coil(Orange)
1. * Items for Left Flipper Assembly ONLY.
So, if I switch to white mountains…where do I get the bumble to replace big foot. Is it just the rudolph toy cut and made to fit? or is there a really replacement?
I am 95% done with my restoration but I want to "trick" this thing out. I want to make this look incredible. I need your "wish I did" but did not. I will try it and let you known, but I really want to make this look incredible. Your opinion is always appreciated.
This is good stuff, I think I am leaving it more original and add a little more lights to it. I added the bear, color DMD, PinPro speakers, black powder coated on all the outside parts,stickers on the targets and Led lights. I think I am going to leave it at that for now.
Interesting, I am going to try a prototype with little trees on mine. I will do this today and view for opinions.
Can you alligator clip switches for power? I can do most anything to a game but I am limited on parts on the electrical side - PCB and the like.
Trying to work some mods in. What do you think? Really value everyone ones opinions.
I attempted to put the warning label but failed. Pic attached. I might trying it again later. I put too much paint on! Learning curve. I got the eagle from Michael's a craft store here. I like the black but wow the blue is incredible, hind site I would do the blue. I moved the eagle and like it there.
Looks great. I just put the color DMD in, PinPro speakers a final touches and I will put the playfield back in and connect everything. Hopefully this weekend!
I put in a orange FL1-15411 for the left flipper, what is the 1 after FL? Does that a concern?
Well, yes I do like the brightness of yours I really do. The picture is a little misleading because the colors are vivid and do not show the real "in person" look. I think the lenses are the best for LEDs and the above is good for incandescent. I will evaluate this, but the energy and reduced heat you cannot deny.
Thanks. Yes, I did do new decals. Time consuming but not hard. Replaced just about everything but the wire harnesses! Just stopped playing it now. Fun game.
Yes, that is what I did also. Removed old decal, repaired all scratches, dings, dents and anything else to perfection. I took my back box to Sherwin Williams to color match. Bought a good quality paint. I have a LVHP sprayer though. Worked great. If I could ship paint I would send the extra to you. I had to get a 1/2 gallon but only used about 1/5 of the paint.
You can rent sprayers if you are ambitious. You can also put any color paint in an aerosol can. I put multiple coats on mine. The warning decal is a stencil. I botched my stencil by putting too many yellow coats on. Just spray 2x at the max for the stencil.
I am having Boulder lighting issues. The issue is...they are not lighting. I did a total restoration and the only thing not working is the Boulder lights. If acceptable, if some one can take I picture under the playfield how the lights are suppose to be that would be great. Thank you.
I am having a few more issues...both VUK do not work well. The BF arch cannot kick up the ball. I changed springs, but I know I need a better sleeve. Will a new sleeve and cleaning of the linkage and possible very light oil help? Or is there something better? I have the 28-1400 or something but the coil called out in the manual. Also the lost mine...the dang thing drains perfectly! No chance at all to hit it with either flipper. Perfectly down the middle. Pitch set at 6.5 for the game.
The wire frame - arch was not true. Slightly off the guide hole. The lost mine issue, someone suggested to bend the metal so I did and that worked greatly. Just a slight bend. Cannot see it anyway. Plays great now. Fun game.
I just ordered the Lh-6 ROM. I have the L4. I did not see much difference between the L4 and the L5 but there looks to be a lot of changes to the Lh-6! Is this the preferred choice with WHO2!
Yeah, after I bought that dang bear I found it at Toy R Us! Son of a did'ly Since added a moose, beaver, wolf and a couple of owls!
So I upgraded to the L-h6 chip, all is good. Now in the middle of a game if there is a switch out it stops and does a test. Cancels the game - that might be the best game you are having. Is this normal or is this L-h6 flawed?
I have many 44s and 555s that you can have. Send me a pm with your address and I will send them to you.
That is exactly what I had to do.
Quoted from Elicash:Anyone else replace Bigfoot Bluff ramp and have an issue with it fitting correctly? Specifically for me, the metal ramp flap did not sit flush where it attaches to upper pf.
I took a dremel with a grinding bit and smoothed down plastic lip under metal flap. Worked great as the area I thinned down is out of site.
Seems these replacement ramps are durable and beautiful, but the durability comes with the price of not so perfect fitting.
45 minutes max. You need to take off the top mini playfield though. I am thinking a 2 beer job maybe 3 depending on how fast you go.
Quoted from Fifty:
Damn, the screw holes are broken off the Lost Mine mountains. That's the one I'm hoping to replace. Thank you very much for taking the pictures, but I'm going to past on it. I'm sure someone here could use it though.
Take a small plastic washer and glue it on top or bottom. Then take some paint or marker to blend in. This should work. Also, fill in the gap with the glue. Just take a small rolled up piece of paper and insert this in the washer hole and tape around the washer.
Quoted from aeneas:
If the upkicker assembly is clean then the coil should have enough strength to kick the ball out from the first time. So check it's not dirty..
What most happens is that the ramp itself isn't screwed tight into the playfield anymore. That makes the pinball lose a lot of speed.
This is correct about the wire ball guide and also look to make sure it is slightly back a tad so the ball does not hit the guide right away but gets more air first then comes in contact with the guide.
Very hard to do. I do not know of a repeatable shot for that. Just random luck for that shot.
Your VUK is too low and not level with the balls lined up. Yes, each ball is leaning on each other. That looks to me what is happening.
And dinner and breakfast and some lunches and maybe some snacks, wait a lot of snacks.
I have had the same issue with my VUK. I solved my issue by moving the wire ball guide slightly back. The ball was contacting the guide to soon. I moved the wire ball guide back a tad. The ball was hitting the guide and not following the curve.
