Item description

I just pulled a Gottlieb Touchdown out of a warehouse this evening along with another machine, but I don't really have room for both without rearranging things and I'm not much of a sports fan. IPDB claims there were only 711 made, so this looks like somewhat of an unusual find.

So, before I change my mind about keeping this and start shuffling things around to make room--$525 OBO.

More photos are in the forum thread.

The cabinet body is in good shape. The boards seem to be clean--no battery damage or scorch marks (with the exception of the typical power supply mark at CR7). The apron and the coin door seem to be in good shape.

The backglass is peeling and I am in the process of sealing it.

The playfield has a wear spot on each inlane (from the ball exiting the inlane kick-out holes). There is wear along the arch, wear in the shooter lane, and wear around the pop bumpers. One of the pop bumper caps is missing tabs, so it doesn't fit snugly. The other caps fit snugly, but are missing tabs. There is one missing post near the left outlane. One of the flippers is stuck.

The center of the playfield has been mylared, so it still looks pretty good.

All the plastics are intact--none are cracked or broken. The spinners appear to be in good condition.


[edit]:
I am currently in the process of sealing the backglass and putting together a parts order from PBR (bumper caps, flipper rebuild kit, new solenoids for flippers, cabinet switches, shooter parts, rubber ring kit, etc).

The more parts and work I put into this pin, the more the price inches up. Hurry up and get it now while you can still get a deal

[edit 2]: Willing to bring to Allentown

[edit 3]: The game now coins up.

[edit 4]: I just ordered some new parts to rebuild the flippers, shooter assembly, new pop bumper caps, new lock for the coin door, rubber kit, and the manual.

[edit 5]: All the lights and electronics are now fully working.

[edit 6]: The backglass is sealed, but could use a few more coats.

Backglass photos posted. That white rectangle in the upper right of the backglass is a coin-op's sticker and it's white like that just because of the camera flash.

Weather permitting, I should be able to snap photos of the cabinet body and playfield tomorrow.

Great pictures!!!

Did you snag the Buck Rogers too? How's that one look?

Quoted from dmieczko:

Yep, it's decent. Typical flaking on the backglass, battery-damaged MPU, the backbox won't close all the way, but minimal playfield wear. So, it needs some work.

I put a lock in the backbox so that the backglass could be secured.

The problem with the left flipper is that the solenoid is swollen and will need to be replaced.

I re-pinned the power supply's J1 and J3 connectors since they were damaged and hacked up.

After that, I started going through the electronics and got the machine to go into attract mode and into diagnostics.

All the displays pass a display test.

The coin mech switches don't work, so I haven't been able to coin up the game yet, but that might have something to do with the strange way that the coin counter was hacked into the machine's wiring. I'll probably investigate further tomorrow. However, the electronics look very promising so far.

Wish you were closer bump!

I sorted out the issue with the coin door switches. The coin counter that the coin-op installed appeared to be causing problems, so I took it out entirely, and soldered the proper wires to the coin switch. So, the game coins up now.

All the playfield switches and solenoids work (with the exception of the swollen flipper solenoid, which just twitches a bit when activated). There are a few feature lamps that are out on the playfield, but I'm not sure yet if the problems with those are sockets, wiring, connector pins, or driver board transistors.

Here's a 2 minute video showing things in action:

[edit]: After cleaning the edge connector contacts, all the missing lamps started working with the exception of one. Swapping in a known good driver board resulted in the missing lamp working, and after some troubleshooting, the issue appears to be a 74175 chip with an unresponsive pin output.

New video with all the feature lights working and backglass lit.

#15 6 years ago

I rebuilt the flippers, replaced the shooter assembly, replaced the bumper caps, stripped down the top of the playfield (cleaned and waxed it), installed new rubbers, replaced all the bulbs on top of the playfield with #47's, repaired the stripped post holes, installed the proper screws on the rollover lane guides.

I was fully intending to bring this to Allentown for free play, but unfortunately, the MPU developed a problem the night before leaving for the show, so I wasn't able to resolve it before I left.

I will likely do some more restorative work on this, and bring it to Pintastic in July.
