I remeasured this AM on a flat surface (my driveway is sloped) and it appears my clearance from the top of my bumper latch to the bottom of the dome light in the back is 31" so I should be in the clear. Tight but clear.

Thanks

Well I’m no help then, worst case you could always take the head off. I had to do that yesterday to move mine out of my basement.

It’s going to cost me close to $20 in shipping to send it to you
Find and ship to me the decal for this plastic and we call it even?

Here are some pics of my restore, any improvements are welcomed

You forgot to add the fact that even your feet/leg leveler protectors are yellow. Way to carry the theme all the way through your work!

Wow really? That's a bit too pricey for me right now.I've recently purchased a bunch of pinball stuff so need to lay low fpr a bit. Thanks so much for looking into it and offering though.

Oh yea that’s the one! Thought it was only 1 decal lol

#8014 10 months ago

I've noticed an issue where the striker kickoff will fire twice randomly, like it thinks a ball is in there. I took the goal trough and striker hole optos out and cleaned them but the problem still pops up intermittently. I have new optos on the way but wondering if I should be looking at anything else while I'm waiting on them to arrive?

If you think it is an opto problem and cleaning doesn't fix it...take the opto board out and inspect and re-flow the solder. I've had my game for a year and the only real issue I have had has been opto issues that were solved by reflowing.

#8016 10 months ago

Does anyone have any lighted speaker options for WCS?

Don't want to do the full panel just the speakers themselves. I have aftermarket in my game and the holes on each side are the same.

I think this worked, couple longer games now without issue. I took apart the striker kicker and cleaned it up and reflowed solder on the pads that the wires connect to as well as the opto joints. I think one of the joints might have been cracked, they are really small so it's hard to tell. Thanks for the tip, I wouldn't have pulled it apart again if you hadn't prodded me.

Excellent. Glad to hear it and happy to help.

Considering having my game powdercoated - legs, LD bar, side rails, shooter housing, hinges etc.

Would also like to do the coin toss and habitrail as I really do not like the gold (in game or the legs) to be honest.

Looking for suggestions for colors and pics would be great. I believe I have seen black on the armor and yellow for habitrail/coin toss before and thought that was decent but still open to ideas.

TIA

Oh wow I definitely want to see more. That looks like a good pick and different which is what I want

Also considering the habitrail and coin toss in yellow.

#8023 10 months ago

Something strange... when the ball is ready to lock and it starts spinning on the magnet it rolls mostly to the right instead of left in lock...

anything that can be adjusted ?

#8024 10 months ago

Found these on an old pinside sale post. I think the teal looks pretty good. Anyone have ideas what its called?

Also how much of a PITA is it to take out the coin toss part and habitrail to get coated?

Just to be clear this is not my game.

FWIW, I almost bought this one but disliked the teal too much to do it. It's your pin, so do what you want, but you may also want to think about the resale side of it.

Quoted from GCS2000:

Habitrail is very easy. Coin toss is more involved, but is manageable.

We just want something different. I mean black makes the most sense since it goes with everything but it almost feels like a waste and should just stick with stainless.

The wife liked the teal and really liked the yellow coin toss and habitrail someone posted not sure what color that is either though.

Lots to think about.

Ha! I was going to post pics but you beat me to it. The teal machine is mine but it was done two owners before me. I think original owner commented on my first club thread post, so you might be able to ask them what the exact color is. Maybe about 3 yrs ago I bought it.

It looks even better in person!

Guess that means you are happy with it, lol.

Has it held up well and still fits with the game? My only odd concern with the teal is that kind of looks out of place since there is none of that color in the trim of the backbox (all black wood) nor the translite or speaker panel plastic.

I love the teal being a Miami Dolphins fan but my mock ups didn't suit it, hence why I went black with yellow shooter housing, coin toss and wireform

I love it and don't overthink it. When I briefly tried to sell it, people devalued it because of the teal.

Customizing is a balance between personal preference and resale. Most people want bone stock. Choose what you like and take a hit on the sale price or just leave it be.

We may be going this direction. Just have to figure out the color. Need to hit up prismatic samples I guess

#8035 10 months ago

Hey, I'm the proud new owner of a WCS, of course it's a great game, but they're are a couple of issues I want to take care of.

1) I want to replace the soccer ball. Looking through this topic it looks like the used to be a couple of different sources for the ball, but I've only been able to find it at Marcos. Is that where everyone is buying it these days, or is there a better option?

2) The game came with the old style Cliffy's, which come up off of the playfield a bit. I was thinking of buying the new version that doesn't have that problem, but I've never actually found a link to where to order them. Also, how big an ordeal is it to install them? Am I going up have to take all the ramps first? One of the ramps is slightly deformed that doesn't affect game play, but if I have to take them all off to install Cliffy's I might opt to replace it.

Thanks!

I got my ball several years ago from Marco and its fine

#8037 10 months ago

What are the differences in protectors that make some come up off the playfield and others stay flat? I assume you’re talking about the front edges that need to be stuck down with the adhesive backing? I find these types don’t stay down on any of the games I’ve installed them on either.

The protectors he sells now are carbon fiber and apparently don't tend to lift off of the playfield, at least that's what I've read. Maybe you all have a different experience? The old ones were regular metal (aluminum?) and they do lift up.

Thanks for these!I'm trying to figure out how much work it would be to replace the Cliffy's kickout protectors, if I've got to tear everything apart it might not be worth it, but if I decide that it is I may as well replace the ramps in the process.

I'll be buying that ball ASAP.

It’s been a few years since I installed mine (carbon fiber)—they are still flat and strong. I recall the tear down was substantial. Not complete, but I think the ramps at least pulled off. Either way, if the existing protectors are bending up, you’ll want to tear down to remove them.

It’s a good way to learn how the top side is put together.

#8041 10 months ago

I can confirm that is is basically a full topside tear down in order put in those cliffys.

I had the older metal style and opted not to install most of them because of the pain it would be to replace them if/when they got bent. I didn’t want the carbon fiber because IMO, they distract from the art of the playfield.

I installed the one for the final draw scoop and the goal itself because they are less likely to get mangled than the saucers. On the saucers, I used some mylar which is invisible and seems to be providing good protection. chuckwurt recommended I believe.

#8042 10 months ago

A full topside teardown of this game is an enormous pita. Mylar it and don't look back unless you already have it apart, imo.

Quoted from sullivcd40:

Unfortunately the Cliffy's are already on the saucers and they're occasionally interfering with the ball because they're bent up from the playfield a bit, so I guess I have to decide how much it bothers me and if I want to fix it. My daughter's 8 and loves this game, so I'm probably going to keep it as is for now and fix it if/when she gets tired of it or if something else forces me to have to take the game apart. If I have to take the ramps off to get at the Cliffy's I'll probably take that opportunity to replace the ramps with shiny new ones.

Ahh, well then I guess you've just got to go for it. If you do a full teardown just make sure you get the connectors back through the right spots. Please don't ask me what happens if you don't or how I know.

#8045 10 months ago

If your saucer hole protector leading edges are coming up a little, you can use a piece of Mylar to keep them down. Try a portion of a pop bumper disc as the radius is a pretty good starting point to match the saucer hole and protector. You don't need to use the entire 360 degrees worth. Just enough to stick to the protector and the playfield. Use it like a piece of Scotch tape on a cheap birthday card from the dollar store when the flap won't stay down, lol.

#8047 10 months ago

Ok experts I need some help. It appears thanks to SantaEatsCheese that I may have narrowed down my WCS issue to the soccer ball motor or gearbox or what have and I need know what I should do next

When the ball motor is plugged in it causes the f116 fuse to slow blow. Meaning I can play the game but after a short time it messes up and lights don’t work game won’t start etc. Replace the fuse unplug the motor and I can play the game just fine.

Bad motor bad control board what’s next?

Does it happen when the motor is plugged in, and the ball is NOT supposed to be spinning? (Like, in test mode..) If so, then it's not the motor, but the control board. If not, then yeah, the motor's drawing too much power. :/

Ram some tests motor plugged back in and in test mode nothing blows even when running the motor. Played a couple of games letting the motor run and nothing has blown.

Not sure what’s next. Maybe new motor and gearbox anyway just to be in the safe side

Motor does sound louder and scratchier than before but not sure it’s anything out of the norm.
