Thank you guys!! YES the entire left side of the cab is up against the wall. and opposite to the front doors about 22ft from them exactly. I have a temp/humidty monitor in there. on AVG all summer it never got above 86 in there and the Humidity even when 90+% outside.. never got above 68% in there. but the avg in there all summer was 58%-66%. with the floor being sealed now(epoxied coated) I feel its less b/c now the pores are filled. and also the walls are insulated and the room never really gets direct sun so that's how it can stay 86 on a hot 100deg day. In winter it wont go below 45 deg. in there on the coolest day. For uncontrolledly environment temperature.. I don't think it could be in a better situation right>??? I guess it couldn't hurt to run a dehumidifier 24/7 at say 50%? though I would like to avoid that route if possible as I really don't want to hear it, have the floor space for it, and constantly drain it.
As for protecting the game, is there anything can be done??? I already made the 1st step of preserving the backglass with TRIPLE THICK, and changing bulbs to all LED. Next is to strip the playfield and wax EVERYTHING. is there anything to coat all metal parts with so it stays corrosion free and all moves freely/slick? now its a '73... last owner had it 43 years.. it doesn't look brand new inside though a lot does too, low hours. id say half the metal parts have a very thin film of white corrosion dust on them.. and I've been wiping it off with a damp CuTip. But i'm sure it will come right back... anything safe to use that will stop it from coming back?????????? and is that harmful?? I just don't parts seizing up and game not playable anymore, that's my biggest fear.
I was given it at what I feel was a great price,, with a great history, well cared for and low hours. It looks amazing with the LED Mod, and its a lot of fun for an older game.
everything seems to be working right except the first drop it lands in at top on the yellow side doesn't always kick it back out. sometimes you have to tap on the ball to get it to spit out. Samething when game is over.. the ball stays there at game over and I cant figure out when you start a new game how to select the player count then start the game so it spits out the ball. I have to now pick player count, then reach under and tap where the ball is to get it to kick out into shooter lane. suggestions???????????
thank you everyone for your help!!! I"M TRYING TO LEARN!! FIRST TIME!! This game means a lot to the previous owner and I promised it would be in good hands with me and my family for MANY years to come.
