    Sega Outrun upright resto

    So the start of another resto!
    Finally had time to make a start on the Outrun I picked up
    Overall the condition seemed good just needed a good clean etc
    I got it untested with a board and also a Outrun turbo board as well
    Not a good start when I fired it up – Nothing … but the board did have power and so did the monitor
    I then tried the board via a converter board on a lcd and still nothing coming to the conclusion the board is faulty
    So next was the Outrun turbo board so I put that on the LCD and Yippee it worked so next step was to put it in the cab and try the monitor
    All good it worked! – Surprisingly the monitor looks good – nice colour and bright just needs fine tuning and degaussing
    The other problem that came up was no sound – Not realizing it came with a sound amp board that was in the coin box I figured out the unplugged wiring and hooked it up – Still nothing
    Also only one speaker was wired up not both as I think it has stereo sound??
    Next was to check the speakers so I put in a spare one and it worked! So new speakers are on the list
    Also the steering had a broken spring on one side but it came with spares so that was an easy fix
    I don’t know if the shaker motor for the steering works as I read somewhere it doesn’t work with a turbo board ?? And also the turbo button uses the start button but that didn’t work either
    So overall Im happy so far except for the non working Outrun board which if anyone out there knows anyone that can take a look let me know as I would prefer to have that running in it
    Next is on to the outside of the cabinet

    So I ended up getting the board fixed (Thanks to Jomac) and it all works great
    Even the steering shaker motor which took me by surprise- Its got some serious shake!
    Now Im not sure about the gear shift as it seems to play the same on either high or low with getting up to speed
    No difference accelerating in either low or high
    By the look of it when you put it low it activates the microswitch but nothing seems to happen (ie slow down etc)
    If anyone else has an outrun let me know how theirs work and is wired up (see pic)

    Also with the screen this cabinet had a perspex cover over the screen and bezel area which I took off as it was scratched and dirty
    Good thing was it protected the map diagram art but I have noticed on other cabs that some had glass between the screen and silver silver bezel surround
    Would like to know what others have or have seen

    Looks like its hooked up to the normally closed pin, maybe try normally open.
    Have you checked the microswitch?

    No glass over the CRT as far as I remember. I'd say operator installed but i may be wrong. Been years since I worked on an Outrun upright. What I do remember though is the steering wheel shaker assembly destroying the wood it is mounted to.

    This seems like a good relevant thread to post Spacies Arcade video on his own Outrun cabinet restoration; maybe it'll inspire more people such as yourself. There's some good detail in there.

    I have checked using another switch and also tested it in the input diagostic test and still nothing
    Its saying high gear is on which I assume stays on until low gear is selected by activating the switch??

    What I meant was have you checked the switch with a multimeter?
    Is the switch setup on n/o or n/c?

    Another thought - would it have anything to do with the accelerator pedal as I just noticed that I cant enter initials when the game finishes
    I press on the pedal to enter and nothing ??
