1. Inventory physical parts against the parts list above. Please contact your local
CAPCOM Distributor regarding any missing or damaged parts.
2. Turn power off to the game and unplug it from the wall.
3. Open the coin door, and remove the playfield glass hold down bracket.
4. Carefully remove the playfield glass and set it in a safe location.
5. Locate the key to the backbox. Insert the key into the lock at the top of the
backbox and turn it fully clockwise. Lift up on the backglass and swing it out
towards the front of the game. Carefully remove the backglass and set it aside in
a safe place.
6. Open the lamp insert panel by lifting the latch, and swing it open.
7. Raise the playfield to it’s vertical position.
8. Open the dot matrix display panel by pushing the two latches, located above the
speaker enclosures, out towards the sides of the backbox. Now lower the display
9. Connect the serial data cable to connector J3 on the CPU PCB.
10. Route the cable around the CPU board dressing the cable to the existing cable
with 2 cable ties at the corners of the CPU PCB.
11. Route the cable through the bottom of the backbox and into the bottom cabinet.
Run the cable along the inside left wall until it reaches the coin door. Make sure
that the cable can not be pinched in the backbox, and that there is enough slack
to lower the backbox without ripping the cable off of the CPU. Use wire ties to
secure the cable every 6”.
12. Close and latch the dot matrix display panel and the backbox lamp insert panel.
Replace the backglass and lock it in place.

wall. Refer to figure 1 for the proper location.
14. Connect the serial data cable (the other end was just connected to the CPU in STEP 9) to connector J9 on the RS232 PCB.
15. If there is a connector already connected to J5 on the diode PCB (see figure 1)
proceed to step 17.
16. Connect one side of the power cable to connector J5 on the diode PCB (see
figure 1), and connect the other end of the cable to J8 on the RS232/coin
17. Remove the coin door switch and the 50v interlock switch from the bracket on
