My one and only EM.
Currently being restored.
First attempt with an EM so it is taking me some time to learn

It is quite nice!
Repaint on pf that beaten up are always a pain, let alone that size!

Well done!

Quoted from Vic_Camp:

Picked up this 1967 Gottlieb 2 player about two months ago. I still have some fine tuning left to complete. It was missing the 10 point bell and assembly, play field glass, lockdown bar and flipper coil. Only part left to find is an original back door.
The four flipper arrangement is a blast to play and I don’t find the flipper arrangement awkward at all since I was brought up playing on a Gottlieb Show Boat which is the same flipper arrangement.
I have a tremendous amount work hours into this game and was a beast filled with tons of issues. I found out the game was laying dormant for 50+ years without being played.

What are the lights in the bow tie for?

Finally having my first working EM!
(Never managed to get my far out running )

Have spotted one issue though, if anyone has an idea... At the start of a ball it will randomly (or so it seems) activate the extraball saucera and prevent the machine from switching from cross to circle or vice versa.

Thanks, will check with them, causse if I buy a full set, for me it's:
Full set price + expensive shipping taxes + import taxes
Which makes it a very expensive part

Traded my Far Out for this Target Alpha, and I enjoy it a lot!! Really digging it!

Only found 2 issues so far;
- GI will sometime just go out and come back later on
- right outlane 5K light never lites but does give 5k. Light itself and socket are ok.

Thanks guys, 2 issues seem solved!
But it looks like I created a new one while adressing the others:
Now when I put only one player, I play ball 1 as P1, ok but then it jumps to ball 1 of P4. Etc.
Any idea of where to look? This was not occuring before.

Edit: solved by tweaking a tiny bit the stepper unit

Well actually the GI issue has come back but it's more than that, all playfield lights die, including inserts. Does look like tilt related but contacts are just fine and soldering seem ok.

For the other issue, it was a broke wire but could not be seen as it was internal.
