High Hand Attempt


Recommended Posts

Quite a while ago i bought a few project machines, one of which was a High Hand.

From what i understand, the previous owner had the playfield cleared (we are talking 15 plus years ago) and nothing done since. So i bought it as is, with a box of parts.  Pics show how it is.

Being fairly confident in SS machines and repairing them, i am really keen to understand EMs more - but still haven't got my head around them.

A bit of a surprise, was that quite a few of the parts are missing.... from what i can see, missing parts include:

* All rollover switches (the plate under the playfield with wire that protrudes through the switch slot)

* All ball trough parts (thanks to @thejudge have some of these, but need the kicker mech and rollover/switch plates/wires)

* flipper bushes/links/plungers

* centre hile kickout mech (coil is there, nothing else)

If anyone has any leads on those parts, particularly the rollover switch parts, or info on part numbers, i would greatly appreciate it

 

This will be a long term thread, as its just somethign for me to tinker with when i have time. I would like to get it functioning first, then worry about the cabinet and other parts to make it look pretty.

I did power it up, and reset score reels to zero, and the bonus unit keeps on rotating along with the  motor.  Would this be because switch parts might be missing, or is it possible to get it to reset without all the parts i've listed above?

de·ja vu.

Your playfield looks nicer than mine but luckily mine didn't have any parts missing.

Same de-lamination of the head box as mine, looks to be a common problem.

I looked through my stuff and also found a hole kickout mech for you, it doesn't have the leaf switch but it looks like you still have yours. I'll add it to the other parts.

Don't know where to get the red plastic from that goes with the kickout, I just cleaned mine up as best I could. Strange part, the only things that was nailed down?

Looks like you will need new rails, Rail-ways can supply those.

Anyway, good luck with it.

I have a High Hand (thank you Mr I Steelers)  - top game and glad you are going to bring another one back to life. I've got the schematics ( but remember my schematic reading skills are 2/10) if you need to refer to anything. Consider ordering any parts you can't beg or borrow from Pinball Resource.

Hey Rob. Great machine. Happy to help out with debugging and stuff if you get stuck. Ping me in messenger as I'm more likely to respond there than here.

Hi Rob.

I have some rollovers somewhere. If you can tell me how many you need I will chase them up for you.

Might have a kickout hole mech as well. Pm your email address and i can send photos when I find the bits.

Edit - just saw you have a kickout mech oops
