Just picked this up Friday night. It is raining here so I can't get it home til Friday. Score motor was running continuously when plugged in. They had no keys.
I bought it for $275 Went by yesterday and drilled the locks..Score motor cam had shifted up on the shaft and wasn't engaging the bottom sets of points.
Got that sorted and it plays! The big 115v coil that I think is a reset coil isn't resetting every time. I reset it manually and it'll play fine. Just ordered a rubber kit this morning.
Next weekend will be a cleaning weekend!
Crappy first video...

It would be great to see the latest shop photos. I've never had a CC but wouldn't turn one down on this EM journey. Coastal Themes are always a plus.

Got it home and have everything off of the playfield. Cleaned it with 90% alcohol and alot of scrubbing. Planked a bunch and worn around the pop bumpers. Popped all the inserts out and reset them, most were very loose. I actually used some gel super glue on them and was happy with the results, BUT I did get one set too deep and had to pop it back out and I broke it around the bottom. Can't tell after I reset it again.
Here's a few pics of before I got it all scrubbed down and one where you can see the difference after the first go round of cleaning. (The one w/ the dolphin.) I'm installing all the new rubbers tonight and new bulbs. Maybe play it some if I get it all back together.
Inside of the cabinet is dirty, very dirty.
Included one pic of my gameroom as it is now....
I'll post some more pics after I get the pf waxed tonight. This isn't a great machine, but it is a fun project for not a bad price. It's also a great learning tool as I get more practice on these EMs.

Well it’s waxed and all new bulbs. Time to start putting posts, rubbers and plastics on. I can tell a difference.

Looking good. I'll have to look up that 3-Ball unit, not sure how it works.

So what did you scrub with and what did you wax with? I have the 4-player version.
