Re: Why are motors so rare in pinballs?

From my experience, If not continually spinning, they are slow to react. They are not instant. They need to build up speed like you car. The electronics aren't that complicated, but if they get dirty or wear, it will certainly affect the speed and momentum. The history of it in pinball ( to me) seem...

Re: Williams Time Warp - problem with drop targets

Hi Mark, Usually just more cleaning and fine tuning of the switches. Possibly, if there is still too much dirt or the switches are adjusted too tightly or they could be misaligned with the hole on the playfield....try and try again. I think you're almost there. It's difficult to get it the first tim...

Re: Williams Time Warp - problem with drop targets

Hi Marc, Power off your machine. Take the targets out (4 screws). Clean all the contacts and adjust (as they are using a horseshoe style contact that's not the best). Make sure that the contacts are all lined up and touching properly in the up and down position. Verify that the cables are are solder...

Re: Arcade time capsules (weird stuff found in cabs)

Had a page from a newspaper shoved into one of the 3 coin slots of my Dr.Who. It was from 1992. It was Italian. My coin slot has a 500 Lire sign on it.
The paper was all in Italian of course and I believe it was mostly about a youth soccer team. Gives a great idea on the voyage it took.

Re: Best 6803 game

Atlantis is on my wish list.... Strange Science looks amazing Drano's HMM has the extra drop target made during testing... I wonder if it's better or worse gameplay. Must be better, who doesn't love drop targets? eight ball chump looks old, but the gameplay seems like it would be the favored of a pl...

Best 6803 game

Hey all, I seem to be attracted to Bally 6803 games the most. I'm not sure if it's the price point, the way out there play fields, molded ramps, crazy shots, flex saves, rocket launchers or any of the other gizmos that gets me looking it over and over again. They're certainly not the typical pinball...

Bally 6803 Flash lamps

Hi all, Been struggling with Special Force flash lamps. When I got it I didn't notice they were out as of course in the excitement and the fact that the playfield GI strobe as well. I read that the flash lamps are in series. There are 14 in the game and there are 5 sets that are connected together. ...

Re: Spring break multiball problem

Doubt I can be much help... But there is a dipswitch that enables Multiball on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd ball. If this is in the opposite selection then it will only give you Multiball on the last ball. Also, if everything else works, what happens when you score a Multiball?
