So close to the end now on Dracula. Time to check the final things off the to do list and get the game ready to go home. Something worth doing on all your games is replacing the batteries on the main board with a remote battery pack. This means any leakage will be kept away from the board and you’re only need to replace a $3 part. I build these myself, with all parts purchased from Bunnings (for the wooden dowel) and Jaycar (for the rest).
Something no pinball owner wants to see when they take the backglass off their machine is a set of bleeding batteries. The damage they cause can be fixable, but is often expensive either with board repairs or replacement boards. This is preventable with regular changing of the batteries, but is something so easily forgotten. (photo courtesy of peakpinball.com)
