PP# 542210 checking in from Yuma, AZ. Picked up up off Craigslist from a guy in Phoenix about 7 years ago. Had to ship the PS to the east coast to get some capacitors replaced, the sound wasn't working (despite the prior owner's numerous attempts to fix it... All I did was notice the data cable to the sound board was misaligned by one pin), and I had to order a NOS display board from Australia. Other than that, she's in pretty good shape. Cabinet paint will flake someday, and the flippers could use a rebuild (any advice on that? Not like Marco sells kits for it).
I've only seen the multiball bug a couple times, but I have had issues with it getting 'lost' after modes, specifically towards the end before and after 'wizard' mode. You can still score points but pretty much all the features go dormant, and none of the cards will light. Lose the ball, and all is well again.
I've always wanted a split playfield game, and I actually really enjoy it. Only downside is unless you find someone who plays it regularly, I don't think it lends well to new players scoring well. Getting the hang of the Ready Aim Fire and completing the poker hands seems to baffle people.

Quoted from barns1:

how the upper level comes off the lower level.

On the left side of the upper PF, lower plastic, there should be a hole with a white nylon acorn nut showing above the Jail. Also, right side, just below the flipper, there's another. If I remember right, that's all that's actually holding it down. BUT, you'll also need to allow the wireform drain to move (I think I just unscrewed the lower end of mine and let it kinda dangle) and I believe the entire ramp will want to swing up as well with the upper PF. The two pics at the end of the IPDB entry with the upper PF raised are mine from when I had to figure it out for myself, and may help with where the rail came from. I'm pretty sure you can just slide the main PF forward and rest it on the supports, and have enough clearance to flip it all up. At least they were courteous enough to include a kickstand for the upper PF as well. Probably a few posts under there that could use fresh rubber too. I don't recall needing to unplug anything to raise it, and my pics on IPDb look like it's all plugged in.
