Two new videos showing this game that I'm currently restoring. It's owned by a friend.
That was some interesting videos. I would say, WOW! Just Wow! If it can be proven that that particular game was used in Tommy. Since it is an Imported pin, can not see it shipped to the California set of American Graffiti, then shipped again back to England. Can not wait to see more progress.
Buckaroo is the replay version of Buckaroo/CowPoke - those are match lights and a game over light below the animation scene in the backbox, not ball in play lights. This era game tracks the ball in play by the physical balls in the tray you view through the cutout in the lower apron. So you won't see those numbers light up until the end of the game...
Hi Sean, Thanks for that! I probably played Buckaroo once or twice - but that would have been at least 30 and maybe 50 years ago, so it isn't
too fresh in my mind. Playfield is now totally stripped, cleaned, touched-up, and ready for polishing/waxing. More videos soon.
Link to Part 10. The coil (for the horse movement) that I show isn't the right one - it should be an A-1496, which will soon be on order.
Check the trough "Gate Switches." Adjusting may bring back to life the 2 rollovers between the flippers. On many Gottliebs, lower playfield rollovers or targets share the same common wire with one of these switches.
Hi Boatcat, Many thanks for the suggestion. I think that one resolved itself. A few other problems, but I'm not switching on again
until cabinet painted and playfield put back in. (Playfield removed since last vid was made.) This will be my first time making stencils and spraying a cab, so lots of opportunities for mistakes! But we shall see.......
