Fark ..... just came in and it's 4:10am.

 

So had to replace some of the lamp sockets. They were falling apart.

Also change some of the plastic socket types that were broken.

Cleaned the target banks and swapped out the trip coil for a new one. Had already changed the IRL540 that was gone but the coil was gone too.

While I was at it, tarted up Transformers a bit.

Moved the spot lights down to the bottom of the slingshots so I can see the flippers.

Wish I lived near Newcastle would love to go and drop a few (or a lot more) coins in it for you!

 

Thanks for sharing.

There'd be a few homes that Michael would be most welcome to visit if he was up this way .

 

 

Nice job on the clean ups Edy . RCT came up real nice . For a bloke who wasn't that fond of LED's a few years back you're not doing too bad :D .

Cause I'm not using Supa brite blinding leds. Or retina burners.

 

I think the blinder I get the more I need to brighten things up. Even need glasses to play comps now. I blame your Avengers flashers.

 

Am using comfort brites and frosted.

Before starting Swords of Fury, I snuck in a quick couple of jobs.

 

Phoenix

This was a couple of small fixes.

Had a broken wire from the target reset coil.

Also needed the target scoring boards cleaned and the horseshoes adjusted and cleaned. Found a broken diode while doing them.

A few switch adjustments and bulb changes plus socket clean.

Changed the batteries diode to stop them going flat again.

 

And lastly, swapped out a failing display.

Almost forgot

 

Properly fit the BG channel set.

What pins have been coming thru the Dedshed

 

Finally all the distractions are over, has been a busy couple of weeks followed by losing my job.

So it's time to get back on track with system 11 games.

Currently have 4 lined up and going through inspections, making lists of things to be done and order, as well as shaking my head, changing power leads to Aus and battery mods. No that they boot up I can play test and make more lists.

 

So up next, finally

 

Swords of Fury.

 

First off the bat, removed the remote battery pack. Was soldered straight to the old battery holder, which had at one time had the battery soldered to the holder.

Besides that, the boardset and game in general is pretty good, unlike BK2K.

 

All new plastics and rubber plus it was clean.

 

So looks like just flipper kits, some leds, under playfield cleaning and tweaking, and SoF will be done.

Chucked in some cool whites and the plastics really popped, nice light blue.

Only half way up so far.

And did a few inserts too, although need to still pull the lamp boards to clean the inserts.

I had crap absolutely everywhere. That happens when doing 4 or 5 at once.

 

Had a quick cleanup. All set now to make a start for the day.

There was a broken screw and threaded posts that hold down the upper playfield, so now have to dig some out.

Also the trough behind the targets had a broken lug at one end.

 

Removed the target bank assy and cleaned the upper playfield, which had the wrong rubbers with added posts screwed down through the upper playfield.

Into the gate underneath, bending it. [emoji1306][emoji1306][emoji1306]

 

Washed and polished all the ramps and the trough, cleaned the star posts and reassembled the upper playfield and right ramp plus the top right plastic.

Next was to insert the lighting board back behind the targets and led them.

Then strip the target bank, clean and polish the targets, polish the metal and washers, and reassemble.

Tedious but worth doing.

Starting to look good, but have run out of leds again. Well at least the white that I'm using.

Top half inserts normal, bottom half inserts led.
