Hey all going to go pick up a Pinball Champ today. Only issue is that I have to remove the head to fit into my car. Can anyone tell me what I'll need for that? I've read about the folding mechanism with the knob on the side. Is the head attached with typical 9/16s long bolts?

Can anyone with a Pinball Champ (not '82) backglass in good shape take some high res pictures and send them to me? I shattered the backglass on mine and BGResto only has the '82 version easily available. Here's what he says he needs:

"If you can find another owner and have them take a series of close up pics of the title and the girl to the right of the title, that will give me the sample colors and the detail I need to make a restoration for you…"

I would be super grateful for any assistance!

Quoted from Meldenhut:

Try this
Let me know if you need any more, I would also be interested in a backglass, i contacted BGresto a while ago but didnt get any response, i suspect its because i need shipping to australia.

You are a champ! Thank you.

Meldenhut I sent Steve your pictures. I'll let you know what he says. Happy to coordinate shipping a glass to you if it works out!

Quoted from Trainman15148:

I have joined the Zaccaria owners club with the purchase of a Locomotion! That’s the good news. The bad news is that it’s an absolute mess.
It will sometimes start a game and most of the time, not. The switch matrix is all messed up. I have some switches not registering at all while other register three or four switches. I’ve been trying to figure out what it up with the switch matrix but it’s giving me fits. I’ve inspected all the switches and made adjustments as needed. All of the solenoids work in test mode but the don’t activate by the switches. Every once in awhile a pop bumper will fire correctly but generally not.
Sometimes the start button will advance the numbers in the programming mode and sometimes not. All the fuses all good. Looking for help and advice!

Sounds like a blown 3081 on the MPU. It's IC 41 on 1st gen Zaccarias.

Quoted from Trainman15148:

Oof! Alright, I’ve ordered a replacement. Anyone have any good ways to clean contacts? The solder joints seem to be okay. As I said, the slims don’t register or work during a game but they will fire during test mode and I get multiple readings for various switches - for example pop bumper 38 generally reads as 46 and pop bumper 31 shows up as 47. Pop bumper 30 doesn’t read at all. Switch 40 will show up as 00, 08, 16, 24 and 32. A lot of switches seem to register as 40. This is beyond goofy and I truly appreciate all the help!

If the 3081 is bad that is the kind of behavior you'll see. I would wait until you get the IC replaced before messing with any of the contacts.
