Figured I would do a two week update on my COVID-19 project.
First ,a big thank you callout to Rich aka Lovef2k. What a great guy and a great help to the pinball community. He has gone way above and beyond in helping me/ others in putting back together these classic treasures. Thank you Rich!!!
So two weeks ago, bought the game, with parts “in the box”. First fire up resulted in “zilch” !
Two weeks latter , after replacing 3 boards, 9 coils, re pinned a few connectors, replaced about 30 incandescent light bulbs, rebuilt the 3 drop target assemblies ( what a PITA they are),
found 3 wiring hacks, and cut every one of my fingers on those damn 555 light bulb sockets, she is up and running. !
I still have four insert lights giving me a problem. Two are sockets, two are transistors on the light board. I also need to do all the nice to do / cosmetic stuff.
What a cool game. Love the call outs. The two player stripes/ solids feature makes this an ultimate “bar/ buddy/drinking” game. The “memory” feature is great (but don’t get me started on rebuilding that f$&@ing 7 drop).
Thanks again to Lovef2k. More to come !
