For sale: Whirlwind

Added: July 14th, 2018 Ended: July 19th, 2018
Condition: Fully shopped/refurbished

Item description

This Whirlwind has had a complete overhaul. I installed the following new parts:

CPR Playfield
CPR Plastics Set
CPR Backglass w/ New Plastic Trim
Williams/Bally Ribbed Chrome Legs
Williams/Bally Style Leg Brackets
Williams/Bally Extended Chrome Leg Bolt
Leg Levelers
Williams/Bally Flipper Rebuild Kits
Williams/Bally Backbox Lock, Keys, & Lock Plate Assembly
Coin Door Lock
Williams Logo Flipper Bat And Shaft Assembly - Yellow
Flipper bushings
Flipper Coils
Drop Target Reset Spring
LEDs from Comet
Shooter Eject Protector
Rubber
Playfield 3 Spinner Decal Set
Marco Plastic Protectors
Star Posts
Ramps
Lift Ramp
Fan blade
Lockdown Bar

The original translite is included. The game is running its original serial number matching boardset which is in excellent condition with no burned connectors. The three spinners in the middle of the playfield have new decals installed. A new fan blade was installed and the topper is there and in good condition. Flippers were rebuilt with new coils and linkages. I cleaned the playfield and cabinet harness as part of the playfield swap. I added mylar where the lift ramp touches the playfield and where the ball drops from the ramp onto the left inlane. The bottom of the cabinet was sanded and clean. I am looking to either sell this or trade for another game on my primary wish list which includes CFTBL, STTNG, and TAF to name a few.

Looks really nice - good luck with your sale!

#3 9 months ago

Sweet game and a great price for all the work he put into it. I probably have about that into my base game and parts alone.

#5 9 months ago

Looks awesome. GLWTS.

You mind me asking how hard the playfield swap was? Any lessons learned you can share? Were all the holes and dimples correct?

#6 9 months ago

Nice! I’m curious with popular sys 11 games on the rise, what has been the going rate for a full restore WW these days?

Glws!

Great price for this condition. Great seller as well.

It was most definitely a challenge to perform the swap on this one. The latest run CPR fields were missing 50 or so holes on the top of the field that I had to drill and all of the dimples underneath were unusable.

Quoted from 2manypins:

Great price for this condition. Great seller as well.

Thanks I really appreciate that

I forgot to add in the listing, I installed new pop bumper sockets (the originals were not used). Additional plastics are included as well as a second set of spinning wheel decals and the plastic gear that turns them.

Naw, not I. I was toying with the idea of "moving up" and selling mine but never really got into it.

#17 9 months ago

I really wish I had more because I always feel guilty when I sell to one person but others want the game as well. I ended up selling this for asking price to a local guy who saw the game mid-rebuild.
