Speaking of pricey games.... Going to let my nice IJ go.
Collector Quality Williams Indiana Jones
This machine was in great condition when I got it but had likely not ever had a shop job. I don’t think it spent a lot of time being operated. I spent a LOT of time bring this machine back to its former glory!
Please check out the link to the many photos (bottom of page) as I’d rather let them do the talking on condition but I would say that:
Playfield is about a 9.5/10 condition.
Cabinet has typical fading but not near as bad as most of them, so I’d say 8/10.
Translite has a three small scuffs so 9/10.
Wireform brass coating is still very nice. This is often pretty worn.
Color DMD installed
I stripped the playfield down and cleaned every square inch. Cleaned all ramps, mechs etc.
All new rubber.
All black rubber sleeves replaced with colored Cliffy posts.
100% LED’s including the path of adventure and back box (I rarely do flashers as they are too blinding).
Titan translucent sling rubbers installed for cool glowing effect.
Brand new CPR plastic set installed.
Installed many Pinball life PETG lexan washers under select plastics.
Found and installed an original “lost plastic”. Goes on the back panel and looks amazing. It was supposed to be in the production model but got pulled out likely to save money.
Installed pinbits mylar squares in the ball drops for playfield preservation.
Installed all new drop decals from Action Pinball.
Custom apron cards printed and installed.
Mark Ritchie signed original promo plastic for key chain.
Original manual included, envelope and other paperwork.
Lockdown bar is in great condition top and bottom.
Installed dampening foam in the mode start area to help prevent typical rejects.
New 27” CPU ribbon cable.
New Pinball Life trough opto boards.
New game roms installed.
New leg levelers
New leg bolts
Plastic cabinet protectors included.
Batteries removed from CPU and installed off board.
New balls (including captive ball)
Replaced commonly burnt GI male and female connectors
New coin door lock.
That is about all. I’m sure I am forgetting something. Most of the pics are from shortly after I finished shopping up the machine a year ago or so. Some pics are from very recently. I have played at least 2 or 3 hundred games since shopping up the game but is still very clean.
There are 2 gremlins.
1. Very very occasionally the narrow escape switch “triggers” seemingly out of no where. I have spent many hours trying to figure this out with no luck. This just gives the player a million points.
2. During multiball and only when ball save is running the auto launch coil will sometimes fire even though there is not a ball in the shooter lane. I have also spent a LOT of time trying to solve this but was never able to figure it out. It does not have any effect on game play at all though.
Despite the two gremlins the game plays amazing! You are welcome to come by and play some games.

I took a lot of pics during the restoration process as well. If you want to check them out see this link:
Price is $9000 Canadian.
Most everyone from the London Ontario Pinball League has played it so feel free to get their opinion.
