One of my favorites that I miss owning! 80spit brought his FunHouse to do another playfield swap for him. He’s had this nice machine for longer than I’ve known him. It is in really good shape other than the usual wear spot at kick out. It plays perfectly and all is working 100%. Plays pretty quick too!

Ironically this is my third swap doing my own and one with cyroute many moons ago. It’s a Mirco playfield and looks good. Gerry’s has this playfield for years so it’s long cured and ready to go. I don’t expect us to need to replace much other than some things they we or I’ve noticed so far: ramps, rails, targets (pretty beat up), and the mirror scoop that is broken.

Plan is usual: full strip, ultrasonic and tumble. There’s not too many star posts but may end up replacing and add some color into the mix rather than just clears. It’s LED’d, but older SMD so will get some updates.

Here’s some initial pics:

That is a really nice Fun House.
I see you are missing the "hide away" plastic.
Have fun refurbishing.

Thanks! Yes nice examples make easier swaps. Good eye! He had bought that plastic a while back and while looking it over we saw the issue with the custom ramp repair at one point.

Here’s a few other pics of the area.

Top side down rear down begins but need to get the underside front and rear edges ready. Here’s the areas that need removed.

Note: I hope you have done the amendments to the trap door assembly.
I made the support bracket out of a thin piece of plastic and used a truss
head sheet metal screw to hold it in place.
Looks like an easy to do refurbish...
Most of the parts are in excellent condition.

#13 9 months ago

Wow. Dave bet the coils were still warm, you jumped right on it. Dave just does an awesome job and is a great guy. He did my Bad Cats and it's better than new. Not just what you see on top but under playfield is perfect too I'm so happy we are good friends, next one will be banzai run, that will be a challenge for both of us,

what are the trap door amendments you are talking bout?

That’s my old Fun House. I sold it to Gerry when he first started out in the Pinball hobby. I owned it for 13 years prior. I bought it from a friend of mine that was getting out of the hobby. I paid $1350 for it back then. Miss those days! To this day, I regret selling it!

Following, it’s going to look great once done.

Quoted from 80spit:

Wow. Dave bet the coils were still warm, you jumped right on it. Dave just does an awesome job and is a great guy. He did my Bad Cats and it's better than new. Not just what you see on top but under playfield is perfect too I'm so happy we are good friends, next one will be banzai run, that will be a challenge for both of us,

I did put a few more games on it before I pulled it. Thanks that means a lot Gerry!

Whoa that is really cool! Nice to be able to see the same machine floating around for 20 years. It still is in great shape and plays great. It should play a little different after!

Size differences? Same as original. Some of us who bought the first version will remember us having to cut the front edge.

This one is the exact same length as original so we don’t have to give it a front cut.

#30 9 months ago

That was a very reliable pin. I had very little problems with it. Still kicking myself for selling it. Great memories my son and I had playing that machine.

Hope Gerry will give me first opportunity to buy it back if he ever decides to sell it.

Getting pop bumpers ready. Pretty typical to have these holes for the studs not just a bit too small for the through hole, but also the countersink isn’t wide enough. I like to open them up a bit larger than the top of the stud with a countersink tool for your drill or by hand. Afterwards I use kruzman kit to lock in the hole I opened up.

We are going to be using zitt clear pop bumpers bodies as well.

Note: for Rudy's head mechanism,
I up graded the components that were used on the two heads in the Road Show pinball.
I do not know if the spring steel brackets are still available.

I’ve done the same on my FH way back when I had mine. In this case it’s already working perfect and no need to.

Out of all the FH restos that I've followed here and i think I've covered em all, you might be only the second person to mention this. I've often wondered why this wasn't brought up more often

Wire guide install. These are small and the clear is really rough so I went with a hand job countersink to get the hole large enough to not chip when drilling. Check the wire size, get a drill bit to match with a stop and drill only deep enough to get a few mm down. I want the tighter hole to still “bite” when fully seated.

Blow the holes out, add some of Ron’s glue and tap, tap, tap it in just deep enough before it comes through the bottom. A ball will be the best way to set these in my opinion.

One down; four to go! Right side is now completed.

Ha! I lied! Missed one in the right. There’s 4 all there. Just one on the left. But they’re all installed now.

Thanks for showing those photos. I am getting close to the point of installing the guides... and now it should be straight forward

#39 9 months ago

T nuts were all installed. Will get a total count soon.

Sling posts installed. I broke one (one with the taller 8-32 for wireform ramp) and the other three already had the tops broken. I keep plenty of spares and glad I did. Using blue star posts. May go with some led post lights pending Gerry’s approval.

Take your time and start on one in the least noticeable area. Once you chip the clear, it is hard to fix. Spinning the drill in reverse also is helpful at least before drilling as it prevents the lifting action. The wire guides clear can lift very easily.

Well heck fire, there you go! I confirmed this is correct for this machine too.

Did some quick cabinet fixes. One of the hinge pivot tubing was missing so added that and nut.

I even found a quarter hiding in there!

All posts are installed. A few holes needed opened up from as delivered but not many. Just the mini posts.

Flipper bats: looked good until cleaned and the cracks on two were found. Will replace them. The third still looks good and looks newer.

The wire management is installed. I have the small parts all tumbled and ready. Started on more top side parts.

I’m short a few double star posts so will order some colors in a few areas.

Were able to replace the moon shaped ball lock. I ordered the disc, but am not sure if it’s just a pin that needs to be removed from the stem? I saw yours looked like mine when you pulled..

I used a chisel to get the disc off. I used a punch to put the new one on. I got a disc on the shaft from Marco later when I did my playfield replacement.
