So I ended up getting two of my three favorte mid 90's Bally/Williams games this year. The last one I always figured was out of my reach due to the price... But since it was the last one I needed, I sold some stuff and bought a "project" machine from John Dayhuff (from Pete's most recent container import).
I paid too much for it in the condition that it was in, but I knew that going in, and I was pretty sure with what was there, I could turn it into a nice game.
It took a bit more money in parts than I thought, but here's the run-down to get it back to 100% working.
Transformer for Neon
Neon tube end covers
Flipper rebuild kit
Ringmaster wiring harness
Ringmaster top and decal
Pop bumper caps and decals
Pop bumper skirts
Clear plastics ramp covers
Plastic posts (purple!)
Flipper bats (green!)
Boom balloon plastic
Rebuilt the Ringmaster Harness
3 Transistors on the driver board
Tracked down and fixed 2 broken wires in the cab
Removed (slightly) corroded battery holder
A whole bunch of switch adjustments.
It's now playing 100%, and SO FUN! Super happy to have this one in the arcade!
