Re: Help with Win a Crunch

Or I could just make a new bolt on part that works 100%. The machine itself isn't modified. The old one was unscrewed and the new one gets bolted on in its place. The same linkage is leveraged. The only thing that's left to do is make it foolproof. Kit-Kats have flappy wrappers that pose some cloggi...

Re: Help with Win a Crunch

Now to get the Machine dealing out KitKats, instead of Crunch's. I'm just rebuilding the mechanism from scratch. Never used a candy bar as a dimension before.. :HaHa:

Re: Help with Win a Crunch

And now i've got a functional key. Blanks are on the way. But this will work in the meantime.

Re: Star Wars stuck

I've got a White Water pinball machine, so I'm familiar with the mechanics of the newer ones.

Have you tried going through the test procedures to confirm that the switches and solenoids are working properly?

Re: Star Wars stuck

welcome aboard! Have you ever raised the playfield? If so, you may have to test out the solenoid that supposed to be kicking the ball out. There could also be something jammed in the outhole preventing it from ejecting. Sometimes pieces of the rubbers get lodged in there. If that's the case then you...

Re: Help with Win a Crunch

Here's what the key should look like. JustKey.JPG Here's how that was determined: key.JPG And the dimensions, in inches: keyDims.JPG Of course this is assuming that the tumblers are squished together with no gap. I'm guessing that about .005" need to be added per tumbler to allow for corrosion and s...

Re: Help with Win a Crunch

So, as you can see in the earlier photographs, there was one corner that was cracked off and it was a pretty decent size and it was extremely warped. First thing I did was place down on a piece of paper, held it flat and traced it. At that point I had the original size. I had feared that the heat wo...

Re: Help with Win a Crunch

That's why this will be handing out kit-kats and not crunchs. I thought about doing some painting on the back, but for the few small areas, it won't really be worth it to acquire the paint, match the colors and then get it perfect. If I leave it at is, there's some paint flecks missing and that's be...
