Hi

I just bought a Parts Only Coleco Powerplay off E-Bay. Its Model 5170 if that helps.

The Games Goal Cups where missing as well as the nets. Actually the only thing good about the games was the shell and Surface.

I bought a irwin Powerplay 2 off Kijiji for 20 bucks and Stripped the game for parts.

I replaced all the rods on the game as well as the Goalie rods. Since the goal cups where missing the goalie rod has no support and are extremely loose. Does anyone know how to fix it so the goalie rods are supported?

Also some of rods don't move smoothly especially the defence rods. Is there a way to smooth out slots?

Thanks

Marcus

Hi Marcusgg. If you are restoring the Power Play game which is missing the goal cups, and your Irwin PP2 game came intact with the goalie assembly, you can use the Irwinparts on your older game to fix the goalie rod. I have done this using the small plastic U shaped support that came with the Irwin PP2 game.
Option 1) If you are willing to cut your Power Play board, then you cut out the trapezoid behing the goal, just like it is in the PP2 game, and fit the PP2 U bracket in your Power Play game.
Option 2) I built a custom assemby to support the goalie which can be put in using 2 1mm machines screws in approximately the same place. This means you don't cut the board as in option 1.
Option 3) Find goalie cups (tough to find) and rivet them on your Power Play game.
Best of luck and and you can email me if you want to see what the 3 options look like. Options 1 and 2 get cover by the net when you put it on, so itdoes not impact the playing surface.
Best of Luck and call me before you drill or cut if you are not sure what I mean.

Hi

I Like option 2. I don't have a spare powerplay 2 or want to spend money on goal cups. Do you have pics of the custom piece you made for the goalies or detailed info on how to make it?

If you have pics, can u send them to pattiandmarcus@hotmail.com

Thanks

hey Marcus, is your game the Power Play 1 board with the wooden ice surface? If so don't do anything to it and contact me at
superdave3n2@yahoo.ca

I can help you.
I have the goal cups you are looking for.

As for smoothing the rods, use emery cloth and rub the rods down until they are smooth. You can also use graphite or silicone on them as well after you use the emery cloth.

Contact me.
Super Dave

Or 000 steel wool for the rods. Got the tip from John Power and it works like a charm on all things metal.
