DANGER ELECTRICAL SHOCK
Pinball machines have high voltages which can cause DANGER TO LIFE AND LIMB. TURN POWER OFF and UNPLUG PINBALL MACHINE prior to installation. Pinball machines are high voltage and can cause electrical shock.
SAFETY GLASSES are also recommended while working with or installing pinball parts.
Please follow these safety instructions as well as all installation instructions. Failure to follow these instructions may result in damage to the pinball machine, accessory or other parts. Please see our Disclaimer for associated risks and responsibilities (Section 13 in our Terms of Service) prior to installation.
Images included in these instructions are of an installed prototype and may or may not be the exact bank from your game. Therefore photos may not be an exact representation of your product.
If you have questions or concerns regarding the proper installation of this part, please contact us for assistance.
When removing screws from the playfield, reinstall by first turning them counter-clockwise to match the original groove in order to respect the integrity of the playfield wood.
- Remove balls and lift playfield.
- Disconnect the molex power supply connector (back of motor) and the motor switch Z-connector. Disconnect the target bank switch wire harness z-connector (Black/White/Red/Blue one side.)
- Use a nut driver to remove the four screws holding on the motor assembly. Tilt up from the bank assembly and pull away from playfield. Careful, there is grease on the motor actuator shaft that connects with the recognizer bank.
- Remove the five screws, two on top and three on bottom, holding the target bank and carrier assembly. Again, there is grease in the motor shaft well, and likely along the edges of the bank.
- Using the same 1/4 nut driver you used to remove the playfield screws (or flathead bit), and the same socket from the last step, remove the screws and nuts from the bracket on one side of the carrier assembly. Loosen the other side slightly. The target carrier will slide right out, to the side you removed the bracket from.
- Do the same on the nuts and Phillips screws for the three targets on your factory target bank. Keep the screws through the targets and just lift them out with the plastic wire guard in all one piece.
- Place the targets into the new bank. Attach the nuts to hold them in place, but leave slightly loose. Make note of the spacing of the targets. The foam squares need to go right behind the rivet on the target faces. It is easiest to put the squares in place with the targets tightened down to ensure they are spaced appropriately.
When attached, the plastic guard should be pretty close or touching the motor channel, there should be clearance between the top of the targets and the bank itself. Targets should move freely without rubbing each other or the bank.
- (Optional, but recommended) The original target bank was lubricated with some kind of grease on the edges of the bank where it meets the metal bracket and the carrier. If you want to go "factory" with it, and potentially extend the life of the target bank and carrier, you can re-apply your plastic-and-metal-friendly lubricant of choice (white lithium grease for example) along the lower edge of the target bank and the lift channel that the motor armature goes into. If you're going to proceed to do this, we recommend cleaning off the motor armature with alcohol to remove the old lubricant and the sides of the bracket with a q-tip.
- Place the target bank back into the slide carrier and reattach the brackets. Don't overtighten the screws and nuts. If there is ANY binding up or down, it's too tight. Remember, it's a guide for the target bank, nothing more. The screws and nuts may even be able to be rotated by hand.
- Take the motor assembly, and clean the top area and the bottom plate by the adjustment screws with alcohol. With the motor pointing up towards you and the armature pointing down, you will want the wires for the LED strips to come out the right side. Remove the adhesive backer from each strip, and place the red strip at the top right up 90 degress to where the screws go. The switch wires may be in front of it, don't worry, plenty of light to go around. The blue strip goes down right smack in the middle of the end of the bracket where the adjustment screws are that set the bank height for when it's down. Press them down evenly and don't leave any gaps or bends.
- With the bank mounted and LED strips attached, you'll need to re-assemble in reverse. Put the target bank assembly back on first. Make sure you get it aligned properly, there's a good bit of play on those bottom three screws to accomodate adjustment, so make sure the bank doesn't scrape the sides of the playfield cutout when it's going up/down. Reattach the motor after that, remember you'll have to pull the target bank out towards you so the armature of the motor goes into the lift channel.
- Once the armature is positioned correctly, it's easy to realign the screw holes for the motor bank and secure it back in place. Reconnect the motor power, the motor switch Z-connector, and the target bank z-connector.
- Once everything is secured back, in the game, you can clip the blue flasher strip's alligator clips to the flasher above the motor assembly. Clip one on the un-insulated lug that sticks out to the side, clip the other one to the "nipple" on the underside of the lamp socket.
- Run the RED LED's wires with the molex connector along the nearest harness to the bottom right of the playfield. Ziptie where necessary to keep the wire flush to the harness. Plug in the molex to the power connection near the coin door.
- Put the playfield down, CAREFULLY slide the playfield back into position, watch to make sure none of your newly installed wires are too short and not pulling on the molex connector but better safe than sorry!
- Turn on the game and enjoy!
