You know, I find it very sad that people, who call themselves pinball collectors, would pass this machine off 4 or 5 times without fixing it. SkyKing2301 just sprayed some bottled cleaner on it, hacked a 'repair', and kicked the can down the road. So, another 'genious' buys it, and resells it....to me. That's right, I paid for a machine that some of you on this topic told a previous owner to "burn." And you call yourselves 'collectors'?
I spent a couple hours in the woodshop making a new base for the backbox, then repainted the white part of the cabinet and had the legs powdercoated. I also replaced a side of the backbox, and had the artwork restored by a local artist. There were enough broken parts on the playfield to choke a horse. Shameful. Even a rubber was 'shortened' with a bread tie. Nice job Skyjump. The leaf switch was also replaced using a BALLY part.
I would suggest that you, 'Mr. Jump', learn how to read schematics, instead of stashing them in the coin box. Your 'beloved' machine has been mechnically restored, by me, and plays like new. Those inserts you were too busy to concern yourself with? They have been done, too. New posts, new lane guides, new hardware, LED lighting, new decals, sandblasted the lock down mount and playfield glass end piece. New rubbers, new bumpers, new fuse block with the CORRECT fuses,
Oh, I especially like the black electrical tape to cover up the ink loss on the backglass. Clasy touch. If you want the bucket of grease you used on the scoring unit, I have it in my garage.
Looks like Skyjump's chute failed to open one too many times.
Now, go ahead and ban me for speaking the truth.
