Item description

Partially shopped Williams Gorgar

I originally acquired this game as a non-working project. I had intended to fully shop the game out and possibly install a new hardtop, but multiple acquisitions since getting this machine have forced me out of space, so Gorgar must go.

Here's what I have done to the machine so far:


* Disassembled / cleaned / reassembled all movings parts of: Slings / Pops / Flippers / Drop Targets; replaced coil sleeves
* The plunger of the knocker coil was "locked" inside the melted coil sleeve; freed the plunger and replaced the fried coil
* The plunger for the upper drop target assembly was "locked" inside the melted coil sleeve; freed the plunger and replaced the fried coil


* Replaced the Q41 Transistor (knocker coil) on the Driver Board (Surprisingly, the Q21 Transistor for the upper drop target reset coil was fine)
* Replaced the R196 - R211 resistors on the Driver Board with 0 ohm jumpers
* Replaced ROM sockets on MPU board with SIP strips
* Replaced 5101 RAM chip on MPU Board and socketed with SIP strips
* Added a remote battery pack to the MPU board
* Replaced ROM sockets on Speech Board
* Replaced CPU and ROM sockets on Sound Board


* Cleaned and waxed playfield
* Cleaned / flattened plastics
* Polished any 'visible' metal on playfield: screw heads, flipper lane guides, snake pit / kickout hole guides / etc.
* Repaired wear above left flipper and flipper drag above right flipper with decals (scans from another Gorgar playfield), and covered with .002 (2 mil) clear, low-tack protectors. As I had previosuly mentioned, I was contemplating a new hard top, but even without it, the playfield presents nicely with these decals. I also have a couple of spare sets of decals for the buyer, in case they are ever needed.

What was already present when I acquired the game

* There had been some touch up in the black areas of the cabinet, and it looks like someone completely redid the black on the sides of the head; they must have used a thin tape around the reds/whites, as you can see/feel a slight 'raise' of the black on the head; Cabinet appears solid
* Backglass has some slight wear (see pics), but does present nicely
* All displays work, but very slight dim sections in the upper right corners of three digits in the Player 4 display (see pic), but all digits are displayed when playing.
* 'Newer' (but not brand new) rubbers

I have tried to list all relevant details above and capture all cosmetic details of the game in the pics below, but please do not hesitate to ask for any additional photos if needed. I've played about a dozen games since I finished my work with the above items, and it plays 100%, with both sounds and speech working.

Priced below the pinside average ($1,600) at $1,500 for a quick sale

I am willing to work with the shipper of your choice (as I'll be working from home for the foreseeable future); I only ask that you make all arrangements. Game is located in our walkout basement for easy removal, and I can assist with loading for local pickup.

Cash or Paypal F&F accepted. If buyer prefers to use 'regular' Paypal with buyer protection, please add an additional 3.1% to cover PayPal fees. As always, please do not hesitate to PM with with any additional questions that you may have.
