Can anyone with a WOZ JJP supplied shaker please take the cover off of it and tell me which wire has the cap on it?
One wire will be a solid color and should be the supply side. The other wire will have a stripe on it and should be the control side. I need to know if the cap goes to the solid color wire or the wire with a stripe.

If possible, please trace that control wire with the stripe to the plug in the game to see if it connects to the striped wire from the harness.

I just installed two shaker motors - one in JJP Pirates and the other in WOZ. I got both from Pinball Life. The shaker is made specifically for Pirates. The one I installed in WOZ is the generic.

Both have the electrolytic caps. I traced the wiring and the cap in the JJP shaker is on the power supply side, not the control side. The one I installed in WOZ ends up having the cap on the control side.

The attached picture is from the Pinball Life supplied JJP Pirates compatible shaker and shows the solid yellow going to the cap. The striped control wire yellow is on the non-cap side.

Quoted from LTG:

Positive to yellow wire negative to motor case.

Thanks. I appreciate your response.

The Pinball Life generic shaker has the + side of the cap going to the striped wire. I will switch it. I guess there is no such thing as forward or backwards on these motors, so I can just switch the wires, not try to move the cap with its ground.

I have an aftermarket shaker from Cointaker in my Stern Star Trek. Will have to check that one out too.

I figure the cap is to keep noise from the 12V line. It does not do any good to have that connected to the control side.

Added 10 months ago:

The motor had a tab marked red, so I figured switching the wires might be a 'bad thing'. So I moved the cap. I had to drill a new hole for the ground screw. Since the original hole was threaded, I made sure to use Loctite on the screw in the new hole.
