This beautiful machine is on its way back home to Big Sky, Montana.
This is a very nice machine. It originally came for Nickels and Dimes, Incorporated (Tilt Amusements).
This one will stay in the shop through the weekend for some endurance testing:
This is what it looked like when I first removed the old “repair” globs:
And this is what it looked like after the repair:
This game came in for repairs, shop job and LED’s. One Pop Bumper was not working: turned out to be a 2 transistors and the 7402 chip that drove them. The power board had a tip36C transistor failure. There was a broken flipper, a cracked flipper and two burnt coils. Still needs the Wire Actuator 535-7322-00 (not available) to be custom made. One string of GI is out. Still dirty, but on its way back to greatness:
Got the Backbox and Feature lights converted to LED. Replaced the Clock PCB with a Rottendog CLK01. Replaced a bunch of 906 Flashers. Replaced the S1865 Flipper Opto with a PVE11233 to get the right flipper going. Still needs cleaning, rubber and a few more LEDs. Reporting left flipper EOS switch to check and also needs remote battery holder. I also notice a broken slot machine scoop ($89+shipping), but I don’t think that needs fixing. Sure coming together nicely:
This is what happens when a mouse pees into a twilight zone clock:
This is an interesting game. It has a ball lift so you have to push in the lower plunger to be able to shoot the ball. New relay bank reset coils (replaced shorted coils), several switch adjustments, rebuilt the chime box, found a broken main power wire, installed new coin door lock.
You may remember before, but these are after:
Repaired: Back box lock mechanism, GI connector, Remote Batteries, Installed Coin Mechs, Diagnostic (Coin Door) switches rewired, Memory Protect Switch Replaced, Plunger Sleeve, Spring and Clip, Back Box Feature Lights Repaired, Diode on 3X feature light, Clean, wax, rubber, bulbs.
This is a very nice survivor. It has cooked coils on the reset bank and a couple sticky units, but it should be back running strong in a couple weeks.
