I responded to an ad for "a pinball machine." On the phone the seller wouldn't tell me what type of machine it was, I'd just have to come look at it. So I drove over to the guy's house (which was the back half of a church). The machine was a Williams Triple Action. When he turned it on, it did light up, but the score motor on the bottom of the cabinet was running continuously, so we turned it back off. The seller said that when the left slingshot had stopped working he had thoroughly doused it in WD40 to fix it. Which didn't fix it. Heh. The backglass was flaking. The playfield was sort of rough. And I know nothing about EMs at all. So I told the seller that I was going to pass and not make him an offer. At which point he said, "Well, I need it out of here or it's going to the dump. So why don't you just take it."
So I did. I don't really know how to start or what I've gotten myself into, but I figure between pinside and the online wikis that I can take a crack at it.
The game came with some pretty awesome mods that I thought you guys might enjoy. We've got the attempted free play mod(?), the bungie cord rubber mod, and my favorite, the endless game mod. The game also came with a bunch of non-regulation-sized pinballs.
