    Quoted from pinballplusMN:

    Let the rectifiers hang in the air. That will dissipate the heat better.[quoted image]

    It’s the wrecking ball mod. Get it swinging and watch the destruction when it touches something.

    When you don't have the Bridge Rectifiers with straight leads for PCB mounting, the extended wire connection works fine. Hopefully no shorting occurs if the game gets shaken.

    The technician dressed the wires well with cable ties.

    They've been soldered on every game I've owned

    Bally Party Zone. I guess they didnt want to replace with a post to protect the ramps so use a screw instead.[quoted image]

    I’m trying to figure out what the game is. It isn’t a Party Zone.

    Probably not the worst hack I’ve seen but bought a bunch of pins from an operator and he did this to every driver board, I’m guessing to stop resets. It didn’t work and I’ve removed all the jumpers

    Not the worst hack I've seen but very creative. Toothpicks and hot glue to keep 3 of these drop targets together. I was rather impressed how strong they were and how the color dye worked its way into the hot glue!
