Quoted from meSz:
Starting a thread for an Olympic Hockey machine I just picked up and I know that I am going to need some assistance with.
At this point I started to tear down the entire top of the playfield as I do with all the machines I get. Right away I am noticing pop bumpers will be needed as well as a few other parts but for the most part the playfield will clean up. Only issue is some wear around the pops.
Upon taking out the top arch I noticed that one of the bulbs had the plastic tube. This one was yellow. Most machines of this era have 2 yellow and two red tubes. Can anyone confirm for me what Olympic Hockey is supposed to have?
I picked up one a few weeks ago in good shape and clean. Have not done a full tear down yet. Glad to hear it has bulbs in the upper arch! I’m sure someone will answer your question before I tear mine down.
I did replace all coil sleeves under the playfield and rebuilt the flippers. Was very skeptical of the high ratings this pin had received. The playfield looks barren compared to many other pins.
The playfield layout is utterly brilliant! Very fast table and a blast to play. Just a great pin.
Currently working on a Time Zone and had forgotten they also had bulbs and tubes in the arch. Three of the four red tubes are in good condition and can send a couple of them if you want the original look. The tubes add just a hint of color.
I know it’s a matter of taste, but I like the warm LEDs in the EMs. There are two reds and two whites installed.
