Game Condition & Details:

PLAYFIELD: Factory original, overall very good condition. Some touch-up paint work has been done in small areas where wear/tear from past use was present, mostly around light inserts. Playfield in this game is a later-production version which includes PC boards on the underside for the majority of the feature lamps, which makes lamp replacement much easier than older-style individual sockets.

New modern LED lighting has been installed with an anti-flicker LED adapter set.

New drop targets with reproduction artwork decals installed. New blue plastic playfield posts installed. All mechanical assemblies have been fully reconditioned and rebuilt with new parts including drop target banks, pop bumpers, slingshot kickers, flippers, kickout saucer/outhole. New coil sleeves installed. Fully rebuilt flippers. New flipper bats. Wiring harness fully removed and hand-cleaned and reconditioned. New disc capacitors installed on all playfield switches that use them (often missing or inoperative on most used games). New pin ball installed. Playfield fully waxed with top-quality Carnauba wax. A new set of score and instruction cards has also been installed.

Playfield artwork plastics are original and in very good condition. A few nicks and scuffs from normal past use are present on a few pieces, but are very minor. We've made three modifications regarding the mounting of the plastics on this game:

1) The mounting of the two large plastics at the top left and right of the playfield has been changed. These are the pieces over the left inline drop targets, and right 8-ball drop target.

From the factory, Bally mounted these plastics using fifteen 2-inch Philips-head screws that went down through the upper plastic and also through 2 clear plastic ball guides below (3 pieces each side = 6 pieces total). This is a really messy and imprecise setup, as it makes for a lot of work to remove/reinstall these plastics when doing simple maintenance (playfield cleaning, light bulb replacement, rubber ring replacement, etc). And these parts never seem to line up correctly either.

What we've done is to get rid of the fifteen individual screws that originally held all 6 of these pieces together and mount the 4 lower clear plastic pieces (ball guides) to the playfield with studs and spacers. This makes them stay in place when the upper (cover) plastics are removed. The cover plastics are simply held to the tops of the studs with common white nylon cap nuts which are quick-and-easy to remove and re-install. Makes maintenance so much easier! We have to wonder why they didn't do it this way from the factory.
2) Factory-original clear ball guide plastics were replaced with new replacements that we had custom-made from 0.092-inch clear Polycarbonate. These are much stronger and thicker than factory originals, and will stand up much better to heavy pin balls. 4 of these pieces are used under the 2 large upper plastics to guide the ball.
3) The mounting of the return lane guides at the bottom of the playfield has been "re-imagined".

Originally these were a 2-level assembly with a plastic guide on the bottom that came in contact with the ball, and a stainless steel metal guide on the top which had no contact with the ball.

This factory design has always appeared counter-intuitive to us: the metal guide is typically what you want on the lower portion, to hold up to all the impact from the ball. Plastic guides typically go on top (this is the way Williams did it for many years). We wonder if Bally didn't somehow get this design upside-down from the beginning, and never bothered to correct it.

You may have noticed on most original Eight Ball Deluxe games that this lower plastic guide is always broken, and you'll often see them taped-together, glued, or otherwise creatively repaired or replaced.

We've done away with the plastic guide entirely as it's simply not needed in this location, and have used just the stainless steel guide in each of the the return lanes, which holds up much better to ball activity. This is the way Williams designed the return lanes on their games for many years, and it's a tried-and-true design.

BACKGLASS: Factory original and in very good condition. A few minor nicks/scuffs are present on the back side, at least one of which allows some light through to the front side, but very minor. See images above for view of back side of backglass.

CABINET/BACKBOX: Factory original and in good overall condition. Past nicks/scuffs/chips have been touched up on most surfaces of the cabinet and backbox- some done before we acquired the game, others done to the best of our ability. New cabinet gliders have been installed on the cabinet back, replacing the worn and rusted original metal factory gliders.

Coin door and trim have been completely removed, disassembled into every individual component, all fully cleaned, reconditioned, rebuilt or replaced if necessary, including full cleaning and restoration of wiring harness. A new reproduction Bally/Midway coin door decal has been installed. Door is set up to take US quarters, and coin slots and switches are fully working.

Game can be operated on coins, or 'free play'. There is actually no dedicated free play setting on Bally games of this era, so what we do is set one of the 3 replay (free game) scores to the minimum value (10,000 points), and then manually add credits to the game. So when a game is played, 10,000 points will quickly be passed, and a credit is then awarded, which perpetually keeps credits on the game, and in a 'free play' state.

Original legs have been media-blasted and professionally repainted in factory original charcoal metallic color with catalyzed automotive acrylic enamel paint. New leg levelers and leg bolts have been installed. Leg bolts have protective nylon washers under their heads to protect leg paint from wear/tear.

Cabinet interior has been fully stripped of all parts and cleaned. All internal parts fully restored/reconditioned and reassembled including power supply assembly (upgraded), tilt mechanism panel, speaker, ground wiring braid, backbox hardware and latches, and all mounting hardware. All wiring harnesses and sub-harnesses in the game have been removed, hand-cleaned, and re-installed. New flipper buttons and flipper button switches installed in main cabinet.

Score displays are original factory units in very good condition, all fully overhauled and in working order. All circuit boards have been thoroughly overhauled and rebuilt/upgraded as needed. Cabinet and backbox wiring harnesses fully hand-cleaned and reconditioned.

A brand new sheet of scratch-free tempered safety glass has been installed over the playfield.

New locks installed on coin door and backbox. Lockdown bar and latch on front of main cabinet have been fully removed, disassembled, cleaned/refinished, and re-installed with new hardware. Ball shooter reconditioned and rebuilt with new parts. New game manual and schematics included.

Warranty Details:

Before purchasing, we strongly recommend that you locate a qualified service person in your local area who you can call to help, in person, should you or your game need technical assistance.

We do not come with the game, so make sure you have help on your end, if it is ever needed.

If you are not experienced in working with electronic pinball machines, or don't have anyone available in your area who is, we would recommend not buying a pinball machine.

Pinball machines have hundreds of moving parts, and heavy steel balls flying around hitting pieces and parts, and will need service/repair/maintenance from time to time. This is the elemental nature of pinball machines.

Warranty covers electronics only (circuit boards, score displays), 30 days from date of receipt, repair or replace, as deemed necessary by our shop.

A problem with a warranted part may require you to properly and safely remove it from the game, and properly and safely package it for shipping back to our shop. This will also require you to properly and safely re-install the repaired or replaced part when it is sent back to you.

If you are not comfortable doing this, you should enlist the help of a local experienced person who you can call to do the work for you, in person, and possibly a local packaging/shipping store who can safely package and ship component(s) for you.

We do not cover costs for hired labor/assistance or packaging services. Any such costs are the responsibility of the customer.

If you have a problem with a non-warranted part needing repair or replacement, we may be able to help, but you may be responsible for any associated labor, packaging, shipping, and parts costs.
