Just joined yesterday - what a unique game.
Couple questions: is there a good methodology to balance the Tony's Palace elevator ramp? It feel like most balls want to go to the right, even slightly. Also, the ball leaves the left trail much slower than the right trail.
Second - my train ramp exit over the left inlane is slightly broken. The left screw plastic has separated from the ramp exit, causing the metal stopper to rotate away a bit from the ramp as the ball hits it. The RIGHT stopper has a three screw setup - two screws in the plastic ramp, and one screw that is anchored to a playfield post.
The left stopper doesn't have an anchor to a playfield post and it is relying completely on the ramp screwholes to hold it. Since that has broken away on one side, it's now loose. So past getting a new train ramp, has anyone solved this type of problem?
Quoted from pintime:
Check that playfield is level I use a bullet level above flippers. Check the switches on elevator ramp if there bent out to far They will slow the ball down as ball passes through
Yeah I have bought new switches to install so that's kinda next. And the playfield is left right level and 6.5 front to back.
Anyway here's the left train exit. As you can see the plastic is broken on the left screw and the right screw is tightened way tight to keep the metal from moving. Tight enough that I'm afraid it might get damaged if I'm not careful. Previous owner seems to have used super glue.
If that thing gets hit enough it'll move. Seems like there could be a bracket that could fit into the playfield post like the right side one.
Might be cracked solder joints on the opto board and resetting it might have make a good connection. I know you put it back together which is a PITA to get back out, but it might be worth messing with if you ever run into it again.
Quoted from Daditude:
Newest member here. My WD is in very nice shape cosmetically, but when both flippers are pressed, the power turns of and back on again. Ive heard about the br2, cap 5 solution.
Does anyone have any less difficult tests/fixes i could try?
You could try a http://kahr.us/ WPC board.
