The Gottlieb Trifecta has landed. All three system 80 pins from one collector.

I've been looking for a nice Haunted House. Was lucky to find Haunted House, Black Hole, and Volcano all in one place, all working, and in great shape.

The seller was getting out of pinball and they were his last machines. Nothing really needed other than a few tweaks and a plastic set for the HH.

These are my first Gottlieb SS machines. They were playing really slow when I played them at the seller's house. Since returning, I kicked up the playfield pitch a bit from where the seller had them. They play much faster now but I am hitting the glass quite often.

What do other owners recommend for playfield pitch? 3 degrees? 4 degrees?

Congrats, those games are gorgeous! I'm really starting to like that era of Gottlieb more and more.

6° +/- .5° depending on how you want it to play...

<-----------So Jealous!!!! Nice score, I will have them someday. My experience with system 80s is more pitch is fun and definitely speeds up the game play, but if your flippers aren't in top condition game play really suffers. Hard to make those deep shots. Just have to experiment and find a happy medium that fits your play style I suppose.

Nice score,the games look to be in real nice shape too. I was guessing HH, BH & Spirit but I was close.

I am striving to be a System 80 collector, and just acquired my first with a HH not too long ago. This line up you got is AWESOME. Congratulations on the score.

I always thought Spirit was needed to complete the trifecta, but nice score anyway!
