Item description

I have owned this game for around 20 years. All bulbs, rubber, plastics and ramps were replaced in the early 2000's. Probably has 100-150 plays since. No fade on cabinet, although not mint its very, very nice. Standard lighting and no "toy" mods, as close to original as it gets.

Three things about this machine you should know. One: It has aftermarket speaker/sub as shown in the pic(s), the sound will crackle on the deep bass. It drives me nuts and I would convert it back to stock, I just never got around to doing it. I also did not originally do the installation. Two: In the back box there is a large blue cap. This is not stock. I was told it was there to safeguard against any 5V drops to prevent resets. It must work good since I have never had a electrical issue with this game. Three: The playfield rails on this act like my fish tales rails. You have to pull out the playfield at a high angle to get it to pivot and lock in. I dont know why WMS/BLY had this set up this way. If you dont do it right you will bend the rails/locks and they then will scrap the inside cabinet. This is what was happening before I got it. I have replaced at least one of the rails and it works fine once you know how to work it. But needs to be noted since I did not repair any of the scrapes on in inside of the cabinet, you cant see them with the playfiled down so it does not bother me. These are the only issues I can think of if you want to even call them issues, especially for a 20+ year old pin.

This is a cash and carry deal. I dont need to sell it. Not looking for any trades at the moment. I dont want to ship since I had a bad experience in the past. Located between Cleveland and Columbus Ohio. Also, no stairs :-)
