Shout out to herbertbsharp as well for tagging me in this amazing deal on Facebook. After getting in an accident and totaling my car on the way to Pinfest, the amazing and incredible pinball community came through for me.

Specifically toastin & jaymach1 for going out of their way to workout a new pickup time and then BRING me the Orbitor 1 parts and head without even being asked! They knew how long I’d been planning this and how badly I wanted those parts. It was incredible of them to do that for me.

Now I have this menagerie of parts and a very nice head save for the missing trim.
The box was a great surprise, not knowing precisely what would be in it!
Now it’s time to get down and dirty, and start putting this mean machine together! I will have to attempt to source and modify the motor for one of the spinning bumpers, and create a bracket for the other, possibly even make my own opto board for this game. At least I have one for reference.

I was surprised to find out Orbitor has plastic flipper brackets. Also a HUGE score I didn’t anticipate: a seemingly complete wiring harness for the cabinet and flipper buttons!

The black plastic piece I included 2 pictures of is a mystery, I’m not sure it is even part of Orbitor but I included it anyway. The box of parts also came with the schematics for the VSU-100 voice module (which I still need) and an invoice for a soundboard repair from 1983! So I guess this box must have been from a gutted machine from around that time, possibly someone salvaging from a damaged cabinet/playfield?

Either way this box is a huge help and I will hopefully have it all wired up and know where I stand by next week. Exciting updates coming soon! 555B7FC3-8DA3-4E92-A866-3B4AF8C716E0.jpeg
