Quoted from zacaj:

Does yours have the plates with the built in coil stops?

I double checked just to be sure. Yep, it does!

Quoted from ryanwanger:

Time for me to do a flipper rebuild - mine are weak! What are the right parts for these flippers? The manual I see online is only for settings etc, and a few months ago I almost ordered a rebuild kit parts online, but the parts didn't look like they matched what is in my machine.

It's a bit expensive but I went with the full fliptronic rebuild kit from Pinball Life and it rocks. Much easier and cheaper to rebuild in the future too.

The original base plates are available from PBL, but you only need to replace them if the coil stop is worn. I find that these style tend to hold up quite well. The coil stop should be 0.25" tall (or at least, it is on the PBL remakes, and also on most of my original ones). They don't make links with holes that fit the roll pins used in the original cranks, so you'll need to get full crank+plunger assemblies. Just make sure you get the ones with 'skinny' links like this: https://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/03-8050-1. Rest of the part numbers should be findable in the parts manual: http://www.planetarypinball.com/reference/partsmanuals/WMS_Parts_1980/files/mobile/index.html#91

I'm not a fan of the fliptronics replacement. I've played games with it and they just don't feel the same, plus I worry about the stroke distance being different due to different mechs.

Quoted from Squeakman:

Love my AP. Mine has a nos playfield but needs new plastics and the back glass has seen better days.
[quoted image]

that playfield looks amazing. I've never seen an original look that good.

Would love to join the club...any leads out there? Projects ok...

#157 86 days ago

Since you'll take a project, I suggest you get the repo PF from Europe.
It took a while to find one without too much wear from the lauch.
Too many down to the wood under the target bank.

My wife recently hit 800 000+ and took the high score.

Your flipper travel length looks the same as mine does with Fliptronic assemblies.

I didn't realize there was an AP club. This was my first pin and I still have it. I've got repro BG and plastics installed. I'm still mulling over whether or not to get a repro PF.

An upgrade I did some years ago is replace the horseshoe switches with leaf switches. AP works fine with switches staying closed when a drop target is down.

IIRC, I purchased a 5 bank drop target assembly from Jungle Lord to get the bracket for mounting leaf switches. I've had very reliable drop targets after this conversion.

Here's a post where someone did the conversion and has a pic: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/alien-poker-switch-matrix-problem#post-2263724

Anyone out there put in the repo PF?
Wondering how the process went. I have heard CPR ones sometimes don't have the backside holes in the right spots.

That's one of those way down the road upgrades for me.
Love the game, it's just so slow compared to my Sterns.
Way more ball spin from this game.

#162 52 days ago

I’m restoring one now
I’m about half way done the back side and so far no real complaints but I’ll report back when finished.

Started my swap last night. Have the t-nuts and new GI lamp sockets in. Looks like everything is in the right spot, nice deep dimples. Very nice clearcoat.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Is anyone close to their alien poker and can do me a favor? Could someone please take a picture of the wiring for the top right flipper?

Thanks!

#166 14 days ago

I don't have alien poker anymore but I do have a picture in my archives. I don't know if the quality is good enough.

Thank you, I will try this picture tomorrow and see if I can make it work!

#168 12 days ago

Unfortunately that picture is just a little too dark to see the wire colors and which lugs they are attached. Does anyone else have a shot of that upper right flipper?

Thanks!

#169 12 days ago

My repair guy was a bit baffled by the flippers but here's how they look on mine.
