    I'll join this thread. I've had mine for 4 or 5 years in storage.

    Does anyone have a parts game with one of these joystick covers? I have one that's broken. Thought I'd check here first and then with John Robertson. Don't know if 3D is an option.

    just bought one of these, was in a barn for a few years. Very cool looking game!

    I am looking for a manual, PDF or hard copy.

    Thnks

    Without a manual or previous knowledge on this game, it is difficult to know a few things. Hopefully someone can answer a couple of questions for me.

    I would need a picture of all the players in a straight line, just want to know if all the players are on the same angle.
    Do all the players kick the same amount of travel? or are there some that would kick less? same movement, more or less?

    Hi Nick
    "Open the hood of the car" and study the pully system. The players should all be on the same angle. Keep in mind the players are made of a bake lite type plastic and break easy.
    Clean and lubricate first . Congrats on scoring a fantastic game!

    This is how the players are at rest, all the pulleys underneath are the same, I see that the players angle, or where he faces, can be adjusted by the adjustment shackle. There is way too much adjustment to do to get them proper way. I looked at many pictures/videos, there are many variations. It doesn't look like the players themselves can be turned.

    I am sure that I am missing something very simple.

    Dateline 1975. I walked out of the Bally Parts & Service building on the Southwest corner of Belmont Avenue & Rockwell Street with this. Hope it helps you and others in the future....

    Excellent ! Thanks for taking the time to post the pics of the manual.

    #59 9 months ago

    The metal stands the players are attached to can develop burrs. They need to be removed and filed down.

    Thank you so much for the pictures of the manual, this will be a big help.

    This is what I have been able to figure out. Most of my players are not facing correctly. I am not able to adjust them with the adjustment shackle, looks like the cables are too short...is that a possibility?

    Have you removed and inspected them?

    On this figure you can see where I had to file down the burr. This prevented the player from turning. I’d inspect your players here.

    Couple of these available in the Denver/Bouder area for $800 each at Tilt Pinball. From the very small picture, the one pictured looks to be in good shape.
