    New to the club. It's going to be a pretty big project, as it's been sitting since the mid-80's.

    So my question is where should I start? Once I get inside the game (I'm going to have to drill the lock), is there any test procedures to perform before turning it on? I'm used to classic Bally SS games, and disconnection driver boards & mpu's so that you can check voltages, etc. But I'm not sure if any of this applies to ICB?

    It'll be a few days before I can get at it, but I'm hoping to have a strategy for when I start on it.

    Quoted from Coindork:

    There’s really not a lot of moving parts on these. If you’re proficient with classic SS pins this should be a breeze.
    Looks like it’s in nice shape, just needs a good cleaning.
    Maybe recap the power supply, or if you want put the arcade shop switching power supply in it and not worry about it.
    These are nice because they come with a daughter board that uses the original connector. Very convenient and easy.
    You will definitely need new rubbers for the pulleys.
    Other than that and cleaning, there’s not a lot to it. It’s basicaly a big plastic mold on the revers that’s similar to a Pinball subway. You just need to make sure all the switches are working.
    Especially the ones for the up and down movement in attract mode. If one of those switches is out of alignment or broken it will burn out your rubber belts very quickly.
    Leveling the game is important.
    If it’s not level the ball can get stuck in the back of the game (subway) or will not feed out correctly in the ball return.
    Pretty easy game to work on.

    Thanks for the input. Sounds like I should be okay just going through it normally. And yes, I will most likely put in the switching power supply, as its a better solution to the linear supply.

    The bottom of the cabinet took some damage (from sitting on concrete for 35 years), so I'll have to address that before being able to level it.

    Has anyone replaced their CPO?

    On mine the thick plastic piece has cracked and broken.

    Anyone use this one from ebay?

    So what’s the consensus on using LED’s in ICB?
    I’m not talking ungodly bright once’s. Just nice warm white to keep it close to original.

    Quoted from brainmegaphone:

    I plan to switch them out to ones that look as close to original as possible just to reduce heat/wear on the glass. I admit I have not gotten around to it yet which is silly since it probably would take 2 minutes.

    Yeah, I figured while I had the entire thing disassembled, I should make the change.

    My machine only had one coin mech in it when I got it. I'd like to get a second one installed, but its not the regular mech I'm used to with pinball machines. Does anyone have any info/spares for the plastic coin mech?

    So what’s the average price for an ICB?

    I may be more inclined to selling mine, rather than putting it into storage (due to space constraints)

    Quoted from TomDK:

    At least in Germany ....
    Normal condition 2000 Euro
    Renovated with new trim, glas, technic up to 3500 Euro

    Thanks for the input. Anyone else have thought on pricing?

    Quoted from Skyemont:

    A friend just sold a Zekes Peak which is the same thing basically for $3,900

    Thanks for this.

    So if I list it (or trade it) for 2500-2800 it seems reasonable? It needs some minor adjustments and a new glass, but does work.

    Thanks for the input everyone. I’ll get some pictures and create a fs ad over the holidays.
