Quoted from pinballinreno:

Runy's voice trouble sound like weak caps on the wound board that fade after awhile.

Just had boards serviced by Chris Hibler, I will ask him for some direction.

Quoted from mollyspub:

Still would like to see a walk around and game play video!

I can film it, but would need my sons help to post and link it. I suck at the computer thing.

Quoted from Flipper_McGavin:

Very good attention to detail on the restore. Do you remember what brand/color code blue paint you used for the cabinet to match the decals? Couldn't find it in the thread. I'm doing a White Water and think the color would look good on it as I assume it uses the same hue of blue as Funhouse.

I had the paint color matched at home depot, I brought a head decal for them to scan.

It could be something as simple as a weak connection from the CPU.

Bad ribbon crimp, or maybe reflow the pins on the ribbon header?

Nice restoration, well done!

Can you share the brand/color of this paint?

Disregard. I see it now.

Quoted from cosmokramer:

The only issue I have is in the trough...I still need to adjust the switches as occasionally I get a ball drain, but the game does not recognize it and goes into ball search.
Hopefully an easy fix.
Then I will install the OCD boards

Well, better late than never.
After taking a break from pinball and pinside for a few years I finally got around to installing the led ocd and gi ocd boards this weekend. Wow, what a difference, no more epileptic seizure inducing flashing lights. Just a smooth flowing light show now, looks so much better.

Now I just need to finally fix the trough switch. Every now and then it takes a few seconds to recognize ball drain, but it happens much less than it used to. But other than that it plays like butter!

Welcome back! Glad to hear you're done and enjoying it! Those ball drain switches seem to be the most ones I have to tweak myself.

Good to have you back. I took a couple of years off around 2016. When I came back the pinball bug was worse than before.

Thanks guys.

Just to put a pin in this, finally resolved the trough switch issue...Rudy is back to 100%!

Such a classic game that holds so many great memories for a lot of pin enthusiasts. Happy to have this gem in my collection for many years to come.

Thanks to those who followed along.

Looks like the remake was just officially announced, I tried 2.0 on a friends machine and hated it. Glad I have an original, forever keeper.
