Picked up an EBD '81 version that has all red ringed posts instead of blue. Doesn't look like they were added in recent years. Anyone ever see this game with red posts?

Wood playfield. Only some prototypes had plastic

I would love to find a set of those white bumper caps.

Quoted from Gatecrasher:

Why? There's a reason Bally decided to ditch them.
The amber ones are a lot nicer-looking and became a major part of the iconic theme.

Because they were the original design, and I think they look better than the amber ones.

I like the white bumper caps better than the amber. Would love to find a set.

Quoted from Gatecrasher:

A Bic lighter is a lot easier. A couple waves under the flame and it comes right off. No electricity or contact required.

you gotta admit the EBD with the white caps and red posts looks good. I think better than amber and blue.

Quoted from scampcamp:

Mine says EED583x. I can’t make out what the last digit is on the backbox or cabinet.

like 5 thousand, 800 thirty something... means 4,830+

Insert lamps are DC.

This is a common problem. I usually add a second spring and attach it to one of the other holes in the side plate.
The spring needs more of angle to seat the tether firmly.

Quoted from Alan_L:

I also found something when rebuilding the pops that I had not seen before. When you remove the bottom part of the bumper assembly from the coil, the metal and fiber yokes just fall off the end of the plunger. On my EBD the end of the plunger by the yokes has been pounded by what must have been the round end of a ball peen hammer and the metal and fiber yokes have been crushed together and will not come off the plunger. I had to find new plungers.
This looks like factory work. Has anyone else noticed this?

Yep. Those yokes have a raised little flared section near the opening that the plunger fits into. They are pretty tight. Put the plunger in a vise and hit the yoke with a hammer and it will pop off. These are different from the ones on most Bally 80’s games.
