Quoted from Chosen_S:
Hope you can sleep tonight haha
The drop targets usually don’t work as designed, a simple fix on the power supply by resoldering the pins on the back of the power supply
Look for broken ramps, and wear on the playfield, otherwise just normal stuff.
Quoted from avanwinkle:
If it's got the original mylar protector it'll probably have some bubbles, and dimples on the left lane and center play field where the ball drops down—but those are pretty much inevitable for a 30+ year old game, so doubtful it'll affect your decision.
As noted above, drops are probably the most vulnerable mechanic. Optos can die so switches don't register, coils can get gunky so they don't reliably reset. But those can be readily fixed with $7 opto and a $0.75 coil sleeve, so again... probably won't affect your decision.
Really, all you need to know is whether it can LIONMAN!!
Thanks for the advice folks. It has some Mylar bubble and the drop under the mini playfield is down to the wood! But I got it anyway. It was 3k and the guy was willing to drop it off at house!
It plays great but needs some love.
I tore down as much as I could and cleaned up the playfields with napthpha then blitzed it up and put it back together.
I only had to replace a couple of bulbs.
I think it looks pretty good for its age and its wickedly fast.
Operators manual with schematics
Gold legs, levelers, bolts
Playfield protector to prevent further wear
New translight (existing one has some holes from bulbs melting it)
New speaker grill plastic (existing one has a chunk cut out of it)
Side art blades.
I appear to be missing at least a few playfield ornaments. But I am not sure what. Maybe some folks here can help me identify?
Also the front of the cab was repaired and painted black but the sides are fine. I can’t seem to find a place that lets me order the art package a la carte. I just want/need the front. :-/
Now I gotta walk through the thread from the start and see if any neat mods exist for this game.
