Things have again changed, and I'm not sure I'll have the time to restore this that I thought I would. I make my pinball life too busy with stuff I need to do, and I need to reduce this to just light maintenance for a while. I have bought a lot of game specific parts for it (new motor rebuild for the spinning disk, all new drop targets, pop bumper cap, rubber rings, some posts, all new yellow switches, other stuff) just in case PBR ran out in the near future. Again, this is a confirmed sample machine serial #1012 S, and thus I'm looking for some value in that.
It plays fine, and pretty fast from what I’ve seen of other vids online. The spinning disk motor works, barely, but obviously needs the rebuild, which I have. I have cut a wire to it as to not burn it out. The credit and PF displays all have “Js”, which seem to change when I play around with the connector from the CPU to the driver, as does the sounds. I have had to replace that connector before, which was my intention on this as well when I got to restoring it, but as it is, these are the only known issues, which I believe are all connector based. I changed all flipper sleeves to get it playing well, just as a little quick fix before a restore.
I’m looking for offers, I know, flame suit on, but as I mentioned in the other thread, there really is little to base this on. I had many offers before when I wasn’t in fact selling, and advised a couple people I was selling again that were really interested, but figured I would start fresh with a new post. Only game in trade I'm looking for is WOZLE.
Rare chance to own a very hard to find machine which is in fact a sample on top of that. I’ll be placing this on the pinball classifieds soon as well. I really enjoy it, but it’s just not going to work, and I’m going to burn myself out soon.
Here was my original thread getting some info on it:
