flipper Cowboy Final TouchesThere were lots of little annoying things wrong which required a few hours of trouble shooting. This is expected, and of course I probably caused a few by being in there rebuilding -Weak flippers - EOS switches always open! Simple adjustment. -Did not give multiple free balls sometimes off of the roto spin (adjust motor switches) -ONES score reel scoring erratically (dis-assemble score reel & clean, adjust motor switches) -Sling shot scoring 1 & 10 points backwards! (I broke a ground wire this caused the 10 point when lit inserts to light backwards!) finally the last steps! - Put on new legs and leg levelors. - Install the new coin door - Install new flipper buttons - Install new flippers (might as well go all the way!) - lube steppers, motor, cams, etc..etc... per factory specs
The machine now LOOKS and PLAYS just like it did when it rolled of the assembly line back in 1961. I can't believe the action on this machine. W E D G E H E A D S ARE......... T H E B E S T !!
OK! Sometimes I gotta ask myself... is this all worth it.. I put over 60 hours of my spare time to restore this machine. Somehow this picture puts it all in perspective! I Guess you had to be there when I fired it up for my Son and POW-POW-POW-POW-POW the cowboy unloaded 5 shots at the beginning of the game. please use your browsers BACK button to return Back to the Top
