I finally got all the bugs worked out at about 1:00 this AM. Working out the operator hacks were the most challenging. It had "revised" scoring for the star rollovers and a kludge in the chime unit. All squared away and running great now. I plan to haul it out to the AA Pinball Showcase tonight and hang a for sale sign on it. Play it. If you like it, buy it.

I was really scrambling to get this one done. I completed Dipsy Doodle in time for PATZ, and this one was the next one that needed to find a new home. To add to the time crunch, we were out of town last weekend.

The game was part of a multiple game purchase, where the game I was really chasing down was a King of Diamonds. My collection focuses on Gottliebs with a few select Williams and Bally games. This one just doesn't fit, literally and figuratively. I was glad to own it, as I played it a few years ago in a tournament and enjoyed it. There are a lot of scoring opportunities on it.

Here is what I scrambled to do in the last two weeks:
• Stripped playfield, cleaned waxed.
• Replaced all rubber parts
• Replaced most bulbs.
• Rebuilt all steppers
• Rebuilt all ball kick outs
• Rebuilt Flippers, new links, sleeves, stops
• Cleaned and adjusted score reels and assemblies
• Removed all parts and cleaned up relay board
• Cleaned, adjusted, inspected relays and switches
• Removed operator hacks and restored game play to original
• Repaired some cosmetic issues on the cabinet
• Vacuumed and cleaned the lower cabinet and backbox
• Rebuilt Chime unit

I'd really like to get this game but can't make the show this weekend, if anyone is going to be up there who could help transport or pick up and hold for me a couple weeks until I am up in Michigan for Memorial Day I would really appreciate it.

Sold. As it turns out, we can add one more to the "does this fit in that" thread.
