Hey Everyone! I'm selling my fully working Bally Fireball Classic Pinball Machine. Everything works 100%.

I’ve done the following since owning it….

Re-flowed all the header pins on all boards
Capped and rebuilt the usual areas on the Solenoid Driver Board (and dialed down the voltage to lengthen the life of the displays the displays)
Completed the ground mods on the Solenoid Drive Board
Completely rebuilt the Rectifier Board
Capped the Sound board
Installed #196 bulbs behind the backglass to lower the heat
Added a few additional sockets in key locations (This game is super dim, and I don't care for LEDs)
Disassembled and cleaned the spinner motor, It runs extremely smooth and quietly now.
Removed and cleaned 95% of the wiring harness.

The following is new since owning…

All bulbs replaced
New Proper Bumper Caps and rings from PBR
New Rubbers and balls
New leg hardware
New coin door and head lock
New Coin Door trim Hardware


Overall, it is in very nice condition, better than most Fireball Classics. The OEM MPU has no acid damage and has a remote battery holder installed. The “issues” are the cabinet left side has some fading (Again, better than most I’ve seen), the backglass has fading (also better than most, and you can get reproductions if it bugs you too bad…I’m super OCD and I was able to live with it ha ha!!). There is a touchup and slight bubbling on the bottom of the BG (again, standard wear area for this title)…I’ve sealed those areas and they’re solid. The rest of the BG is nice and intact. The displays all work, but there are some “measles” on a few (most noteably the 3rd and 4th player display).

The game has recently been fully shopped by me which includes a complete topside teardown and wax.

I'm also selling a very nice bally Mr. and Mrs. Pacman Pinball too and may be willing to work out a package deal. This is for sale locally too.

Please look at all pictures and ask questions.
