Since I bought my WCS a few months back, my first pinball ever, I havent had any time to spend on pinball since I became a father for the first time and started a new job around the same time I bought the machine - but today was the day!
My WCS works. But the right flipper needed a rebuild, got some broken plastic, need new rubber and im going to LED everything.
First time lifting up a playfield (aint even joking), but rebuilding a flipper wasnt very hard (ty pinball help). Even managed to break loose the EOS wires, so got to practise some soldering aswell.
On to the next step.
I thought cleaning, changing rubber and LED the game wouldnt be all that. Had no plans to remove everything, just bits here and there so I can get to what I need. Well damn, I was wrong. Dunno if its just WCS but everything seems to be connected to each other. I quite soon came to the conclusion that without removing left/right ramp I wasnt going to get anything done at all.
So the ramps are removed, and some other small stuff, thats all the time I had for today. I deeply regret not taking enough pictures while removing all this, might be a bit tricky to get back. Sigh.
Got a few questions. Thanks in advance for any insight.
-- How do i remove the %&(¤)(/ apron? I removed two screws infront of it and I cant find anything else that is keeping it down, but I cant move it all. What am i missing?
-- I ran all the self tests. Everything seems fine, but during solonoid test I couldnt hear the machine doing anything when it came to 16. Is it suppose to happen something?
-- I found these plastic thingys on a few spots. Where can I buy these? They feel very hard, is it actually dried up rubber or is it something else? Need to replace a few since some of them are broken, but cant find them anywhere. Picture is from the plastic that is left from the left flipper and right from the right flipper.
