We recently purchased a warehouse load of 40 games, and this was one of the games. It’s a 1970 Chicago Coin shuffle alley. It’s a really good puck bowler, using a faster score motor revolution, so games go pretty quick. Also the lane width on this alley is wider than the 1969 United shuffle alley we recently had. This makes the play more fun as angle shoots are easier with the added lane width. Before we get ahead of ourselves though, we need to talk abut how we repaired the game.
One of the friends was having a problem with their 1972 Williams Olympic Hockey pinball, and wanted some advice on how to fix it. I always tell friends if they have a problem game, something they’ve tried to fix but could not, bring it in and we’ll take a look at it together. You know, two (or three) heads are better than one.
Another game that came was a 1991 Bally Party Zone pinball. The playfield was completely disassembled too, as the prior owner (now deceased) had taken all the parts off the top of the playfield. We believe he was going to clear coat the playfield, though frankly we couldn’t figure out why (the playfield was very nice!)
