It'll be about 5 hours till I have her home. She's a player needs some plastics, cab decals and a few bulbs. but the PF is perfect everything works and the price was right. That's one more keeper off the list. Yay! And yes the code has been updated.

Quoted from Spyderturbo007:

Cointaker delivered my TWD yesterday. I called at noon to see if they had it in stock and they delivered it to my driveway by 5:30pm. Awesome service.

Wow that's fast!
I wish we didn't have to wait 3 months here for a pin!

New code is amazing. Really makes the game.

Found a basically new Aerosmith with some nice mods installed. The owner just picked up an AC/DC so he needed to sell. We've been loving it so far!

My 3rd ever EM, 1st Bally and 1st pin bought at a auction.
Supposedly works. Play field is a little rough but should clean up nice. Backglass looks perfect.

Documented home owned since 1995, came with receipt from operator it was purchased from.

I actually like the sound effects and music on this one, have to see how it plays after cleaning. Back glass is MINT!

This machine was obviously stored on a covered patio or an Arizona Room, a covered patio with screens, and has gotten wet. This is fine most of the year but during the monsoon season we get thunderstorms with high winds that blow rain onto these patios and poor unsuspecting but victimized pinball machines. Worse, Sonic used particle board for their cabinets and backboxes. The cabinet on this one is literally falling apart. If anyone knows of a solid cabinet and backbox in Arizona for cheap, please PM me.

Starting to take a shine to it.

Tonight replaced a bunch of bulbs, fixed a bad coil connection, replaced a bad spring, repaired a bad post, replaced the flipper shoes and elastics, cleaned up one of the display connectors (displayed trash every once in awhile), cleaned and adjusted some roll over contacts, repaired the back glass puck (it did not like to return to the bottom) and then rattled of a dozen or two games.

I kind of like it; The electronic sounds are appropriate for a hockey game (crowd noise, whistles, organ music, buzzer) and some of the shots difficult but you make them just often enough to keep it interesting. The high score that is saved on is in the 3,000,000 range, the best I have been able to do at this point is 700,000 but I'm learning the table.

Where can you find cab decals for this guy? Nice pickup!

Definitely an interesting table, and sounds are surely fitting. The upper left trail / somewhat of a 1/4 orbit shot looks tough to hit. Thanks for sharing the video...as a hockey fan and player myself, I want one now. LOL.

Two more including Nic's favorite.

There are several firsts with the four pins I picked up here in Tucson from a great seller. Super Straight, posted above, is my first Sonic. Vulcan, with any luck, will be my first working Gottlieb EM at Pecos' Palatial Pinball Parlour. It is stuck on 'Tilt' but that should be an easy fix. I am a Williams pinballer but, hopefully, soon to also be proficient fixing these old Gottlieb Project Pins.

This is also the first time that I have seen black rubber rings on an EM pinball machine before. They don't look as horrible as I would have imagined but they will have to go.

#5286 2 years ago

Brought these two in. Strange Science is fully working and in awesome shape, and Dale needs a bit of work.

Picked this up today for $250. Weak flippers were his issue, end of stroke switches were all that was needed.

I brought home a custom made light-box-frame for my alternate backglass from the Domino's Pinball adventure.
I still have to buy and install a string of LED Christmas lights.

Thanks, the cabinet is actually in really good shape, but the playfield has some ball swirl. The pop bumper area is the worst. Why didn't Williams protect that area better? Most Taxi's I've seen have wear around the pop bumpers.

You'll also notice the previous owner has the wrong slingshot plastics and the wrong "carry passengers" plastic. Anyone know where these makeshift plastics are from?

Turtles is back from off site home aka brothers basement bar needs board work and gi problems.

Overall a good players machine though.

Yeah, I had a Marilyn Taxi before, and there were ball swirls and a little planking unfortunately. A lot of Taxis had those issues, PF's just didn't hold up well, or they got the hell played out of them back in the day.

And I've seen a lot of sling plastics, but I don't know what the hell they're from, at least not off the top of my head.
