    Yeh I was worried that might be the case. I found a universal chassis on eBay which might be a Wei-Ya, but it says itís not compatible with MK? I wonder what would be so different about MK that makes them incompatible with these chassis

    Last I checked, which was last week, Joey still had some Wei-Yas for large tubes. You'd be better off paying a bit more and getting one from him, as he will properly set it up based on your tube ohms readings. Ordering one from ebay is a crapshoot at the best of times.

    You're right about the Sharp Image chassis though, they are no more, which sucks I have three of them in my cabs and one stashed away with a working tube for a rainy day.

    meanwhile this is the MK1 board i picked up few weeks ago.

    i plugged it in and didnt get any sound. checked the -5v from the board and im getting -4.79v so that checks out OK.
    Plugged it into one of my other cabs and also no sound, hmm

    after a bit of investigating i found i was missing the volume adjustment connector on the sound board, circled below


    There are only two pins used on the connector so i plugged in a 5k ohm pot and bingo! we now have sound


    Seems the volume knob was faulty in the cabinet as well so i replaced that pot with the new one


    the game now loads with sound, now just waiting for the monitor to get sorted.

    I also managed to track down a microcoin face plate and cut the hole in the door to fit


    gave it another coat of black paint and its looking good. forgot to drill a hole for the lock but will sort that later


    almost there now!

    finally purchased a wei-ya chassis from Jomac to suit the 25" tube


    In it went. had to rewire the degause coil, yoke plug, ground for neck board and AC input since the connectors were different


    After adjusting the monitor its all done! Was suprised the picture on the wei-ya chassis is quite good!
    Or maybe its the NEC tube which made the difference. Really happy with the result



    This will sit next to my Ultimate MK3 cab, which is a MAME cab with all versions of MK including MK Trilogy, and the fan made MK Project & MK Chaotic!



    Thanks for reading. FINISH HIM!

    I have a MK1 that is missing the Midway stickers on the control panel at the front and sides.
    Do you know if they came on the LAI Mortal Kombat's too?
    Nobody reproduces the LAI side art? One of mine is equally torn.
    Nice job.

    I have a MK1 cab the same as this one, even down to the blue blank sections below the side-art. Always thought that was strange, but looks like that was just the way they were.
    Mine doesn't have any Midway artwork on the front or side of the control panel.
