    Default Newly acquired Nishijin

    I just picked this Nishijin up yesterday locally. It's a partially done custom restoration. After some initial cleaning, the front looks great. Still needs some work to redo the wiring/lighting and to replace a couple missing cover plates. I love the look.

    A very nice looking find

    I like wave and the rising sun flag although the flag and Mt. Fuji are more exaggerated here. The wave artwork is referred to as follows from circa 1830.

    The Great Wave off Kanagawa (神奈川沖浪裏 Kanagawa-oki nami ura, "Under a wave off Kanagawa"), also known as The Great Wave or simply The Wave, is a woodblock print by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai.

    At least it's not " The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife"

    That would cause a stir.

    It's probably not safe for work even if it is classic art.

    Anyhow. Nice looking machine

    Yes exactly. I've always liked that print. The play field is very well done too. Looks great even up close.

    I don't have a picture, but the machine is a 1975 Shiori-Kamome (White Bird) Nishijin B Ebira (nemesis of Godzilla). You can see the white bird insignia above and to the left of the ashtray. It does look like it has a later upper front tray style (1977 style), however, I've seen a few examples of original Ebiras and they are all like this, so I don't think any of the parts are from different pachinkos.

    Here's an example of what it would have looked like with the original play field: http://pachinkoplanet.com/zencart/in...roducts_id=176

    Here's a picture of Ebira and Godzilla.

    His claws alternate open/close on the pachinko. I'm guessing they are pockets, but I haven't tried them yet.

    I put in a lot of work on this pachinko over the weekend. There was a bad jam in one of the lotuses so I had to take everything off of the back. Unfortunately it was all stapled, so I replaced the staples with screws while doing it to make future maintenance easier. Aside from the jam in the lotus there was also a jam from debris stuck in the feeder. Everything is cleaned and working now except the spoon arm sticks sometimes about half way down.

    I had that issue, and it was something stuck in the lower feeder assembly above. Jiggle the spoon assembly bar and follow it up. See if the plastic parts hanging down from the feeder chutes are even. If not, that is your issue. I ran a few jackpots holding the part back and it ran perfectly so I knew the problem was there.

    Clean there and see. Only repeating what I was helpfully told here.

    Check the payout mech as well. Dirty and sticky pivot points often cause problems like this. Always clean and dry, no lubrication please.

    Finally got it working. Turns out the spoon arm was slightly bent in a way that was catching. I just bent it back with a little extra for clearance and it works without issue now.
