I recently purchased a 1948 Bally Ballerina all as my first pin. My intention is to learn repair work on this game, then apply the knowledge to future games. Overall the game is in very good shape for its age. As I dig into the functionality, I am also starting to search for a few cosmetic items that are missing. So, I have two questions...
1. Does anyone have this exact game, preferably in parts condition? Keep in mind that Bally also manufactured a bingo machine called Ballerina in 1959, but mine is the 1948 game with three flippers.
2. Where do you turn to when looking for schematics on a rare game like this? I tried two of the biggest sources (Pinball Resource and Mike Pacak), but neither has the schematics.
Any help would be appreciated by this newbie.
