  • Omega Tek boards

    Has anyone ever sent in or modified the older Omega Tek boards to make the sweep go up to 0 on TA2 instead of TA1. I sent 1 board to stahls and Jamie modified it for me and sent me instructions. I have found 10 boards so far in 32 lanes that needed to be modified. Got 32 lanes to check. Hopefully there isnt too many. However its definately alot nicer to see the sweep and table go up together instead of the sweep beating the table home.

    No I do the fix on the machine so I can make the machine avalible in five to ten minutes. Call or pm me and I'll tell you how.

      Who cares as long as it runs ok.

      I have never seen a table hit.

        I care Jerry. I have seen a table hit and a portion of the table infront of the 1 pin cell is busted. Not a very pretty site. Granted it does take perfect timing since there isnt that long of a time to hit the table after the sweep goes up, I still would rather have a sweep get hit instead of a table.

          I, too, have seen a few battle wounds on tables where the front part has been brutally bashed in; not a pretty sight. Of course, this happens on the SS Chassis. I guess it depends on what kind of clientele a center has. If you're predominantly league play, chances are greatly reduced you will have morons playing "beat the sweep."

              I've seen one also get hit. Took a small chunk out of the casting underneath, but the ball lost a bigger chunk and was totaled.

                Doing the mod. IS a ten minute fix. I have updated three houses. I was going to post how to do it along with pic's but I thought if somebody did botch the soldering job it would void the warranty. But these boards are 1982 &amp; 1984 vintage so I guess it doesn't matter, besides it would give Jamie more work and Stahl's more income! Jerry, I don't agree with you but who am I to debate you. - Bill
                Yeah but, We've always done it that way.

                      This would be a beneficial mod, especially if you run time bowling (ie rent a lane).

                      Most kids that pay for time bowling are more concerned on how many balls they can throw in 1 hr than what they get for a score. These !@#$ will time the machine and have the ball delivered while the sweep/table are still moving.

                      I know, I know….some will say kick the little ba$tards out and we do sometimes. But then we get back to the old discussion of stupid desk people and I’ll be damned if I’m going to baby sit the desk staff and customers.

                        Guys there is a way to do this on the machine, without soldering anything. There is acouple of wire on the table cams that can be switched that will make the sweep wait for the table. if you have a machine that is doing this all you have to do is switch the grey and brown wires around and it will be fixed. now i know that some of you will think that the wire may not be color coded but I know that most of these wires were when the Fiveboards were around. I'm sorry that I can't give you more info on whitch switches they were on because it has been a while since I've seen these chassis on the machines. I DO KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THIS WORKS.

                          You can swap TS-45* and TS-32 in the wireway which are the TA1 and TA2 N.O. contacts respectively.

                          I find swapping the wireway wires is easier than swapping the cam switch wires (but each to their own).

                          *TS-45 might not exist on older machines - TA1 N.O. goes to TS-10 instead, so you would swap TS-10 and TS-32.

                          This mod is redundant for newer Omega Tek boards, and has no effect on them (they don't use either TA1 or TA2 N.O. inputs, although the TA1 "G" input is on the card, it just doesn't go anywhere).

                          I assume that the 'solder' modification on the older Omega Tek boards involves cutting the "G" input and jumpering the "C" input to it. The wireway mod would not adversely affect any non-modified older Omega Teks (so you could just leave both styles in place).

                          Andrew.
