I really really want to have this thing playable at TPF, really pushing my luck at this point, but if I can make it happen...it's going to happen. I only have a few gaps in my knowledge on what I need to order from PBR at this point.
Most critical is I have absolutely no clue at all what the leg length for this era game is. The legs I have are crap, I won't have time to un-stick the rusted levelers before TPF. Don't want to pay for new legs at this point, but I have little choice, so I do want to make sure I get the "correct" ones for the game.
Next is the flipper shafts. I need to order parts probably ASAP, I may not be able to get the game pulled out for a few days, anyone know offhand if this game uses the thick or thin flipper shafts? Frankly, I could probably get away with not even replacing these, but I figure it would just be easier to bulletproof mechs now while doing the playfield swap. Flipper seemed plenty strong when I fired it up to test but you know how it goes.. I never trust anything to work 6 months later, much less in a show environment.
Last is the side rails and flipper buttons.. this is really non-critical, I'm not doing this before TPF. There's just not time to get into cabinet/coin door restoration work with everything else I have going on. I tried to measure the bottom of the flipper button hole to the bottom of the rail, but I don't have calipers, I can't tell if there's a difference or not. If someone knows if these are supposed to be symmetrical or the non-symmetrical (one side with a slightly lower flipper button?) would appreciate the info so I don't end up ordering a 90$ incorrect part at some point.
