I haven't really been able to dig into mine very deeply yet, but the back ramp flap that pops up and down seems to constantly cycle up and down instead of staying up in the mode it should be up. I did a quick look at it, and didn't see anything that stuck out at me. In switch test, that ramp in the down position shows the switch is closed, and in the up position, it reads open. Is that the correct orientation?

#252 9 months ago

That sounds right. I'll have to look at the manual. But yeah. That eos switch tells it when it's up or down. that's the only thing I can think of..... I'll keep thinking

Figured it out...it was the small coil that acts to catch the large coil when it pops the ramp up. The catch had pivoted a bit out of the way, and was no longer catching. All good now!

Hello all Road Kings fans.

Do anyone now if it is a new ROM out there that fixes the progressive Time lock value?

#255 8 months ago

I got one. I just bought a pinscore display and a resistor board. I had to do a little
Playfield touch up and painted the middle tire tracks by hand.

My pop bumpers aren't working and my ramp wire form is broken.
Work in progress. Will post pictures later.

#256 8 months ago

Do you mean you got a ROM With fixed Time Lock??

Where did you get it?

#257 8 months ago

Hey Guys ,

I am trying to track down a new drop target for my RK, (03-7773-4...I think ).. Mine has broken. I have re-glued but I am sure it will fail again. Cheers

Hey everyone! I recently inherited a RK machine from my father. I’ve spent quite a bit of time in it and finally have all of the electronics working. I decided to take all of the plastics off and clean the play field and I discovered some pretty significant water damage. The wood is worn and bubble up in some spots. What would be the process for getting a play field restored or purchasing a play field? I haven’t been able to find much info. Any info would be appreciated.

I wonder if there will ever be a Hardtop made for RK. Yours could use one. Otherwise unless you are in love with this one, I would sell it or part it out.
Get what you can, then buy a much nicer one. RK is a pretty inexpensive game and dumping a lot of money in one just doesn't make a lot of sense.

#260 8 months ago

I would repair the really bad spots using an exacto knife and filler, touch it up and put a playfield protector on it and play the heck out of it. Like @ dozer said its hard to justify spending a lot on a Road Kings ( although I think its a fantastic game personally).
But if it means a lot to you there are people on here that might undertake that playfield for a restoration. Probably better to start a new topic asking to see if anyone would be interested. But be forewarned, you may get a fair share of negativity regarding its condition from the know-it-all peanut gallery.
The playfield protectors are at playfieldprotectors.com if you want to look into them.
Best of luck!

I'm not aware of any new roms. What problem are you having with time lock?

There is a file called l-5 fix but i think its just l-4

#263 8 months ago

dozer1 & sinistarrett - Thank you both for your input. I'm not sure what I'm going to do in the long term, but for now, I'm playing it and enjoying it. I think I'm going to be looking for another machine to maybe combine the good from each and make a great machine.

I am looking for a plastic or promo piece from road kings for a project collage. Does anyone happen to have one?

Looks like I am going to be starting Road Kings ramps shortly because I need to find a new home for my copy. If you would be interested in the initial run, please PM me with an email address so I can add you to my list. The ramps will be clear material, and price will be around $80 each. I will probably start testing sometime next week.

#269 3 months ago

Here's what Road Kings looks like with new clear ramps. I have some work to do before I run another set, but you get the idea!

Oh hell yeah that looks fantastic. The clear ramp in the back changes the whole look of the game.

Ramps are available now...let me know if you want a full set or just the back. I think I have 1 or two full sets unclaimed at the moment. I shipped a bunch out over the last couple weeks, so I am thinking we will start seeing installation pictures soon!
