Item description

I've owned this TOM since Feb 2011 and it was fine (just regular maintenance stuff) until just over a year ago. The overall condition is between fair to good. The solenoid for the "Vanish" kickout locked while playing and burned out. The power board also took a severe hit and I believe it is toast. A year ago I replaced the power board with a brand new Rottendog board and discovered the previous power board had some wiring hacks on the back (not cool!). Powered up and soon into testing I believe the transistor for the Vanish solenoid blew. There was special hack wiring from the previous power board that controlled the upper post (top center) and that needs to be re-wired. The only other thing that I know of that may be wrong is the manual lists a tieback diode wire on the solenoid which was never present as long as I've owned the game (at least that I can tell).

None of the boards have matching serials.

The cabinet is in pretty good shape. The translite is very good as well. The playfield has a few inserts that are not flush. There is a little wear near the area between the flipper bats and above the right slingshot. Probably the worst is a piece of mylar over the inserts just below the Haunted Basement door. I never felt any of these adversely affected gameplay.

Upgrades include a PinBits auto eddy trunk board:

and some Great Lakes Modular flipper boards:

When it was working it played just fine. That's all I know to be wrong with it but there certainly could be more. If you're interested in a project, or have more questions, feel free to let me know! I've been slow to further diagnose and repair the game but I will keep this posting updated as issues are fixed or discovered.
