    Joker Poker Resto

    Now that Centigrade is finished i thought i better get started on this project. I picked up Joker Poker 3 years back and absolutely love playing it. It is a great player but has been in storage for almost 2 years.

    It is in good condition and doesnt need much done to make it shine. It came with CPR backglass and a fair playfield. There is some wear here and there - the worst being in the left hand outlane. But still looks presentable. Original boards with battery mod in the back still working great.

    The plan is to apply pinball pimp stencils before it gets too cold. Coin door has a few dings in it so looking at swapping it out. One of the leg nut plates is cross threaded so will replace. New legs, PDI playfield glass, new posts and plastic rollovers pop bumpers, new target. New flipper buttons and coin plates. Railways siderails. New pascal all in one board. And if i can afford it a cpr playfield.

    Kings drop targets dont reset. No fuses protecting the small transformer. I read fuses should be installed on the primary and secondary side. No coin mechs. Everything else is working great. Really want the pascal board for reliability and new features.

      Looking under the playfield all fuses look good. I used a multimeter and found the kings drop target 2amp slo blo fuse was open circuit?!? Changed and now the kings are working!

            What is the best way to remove the backglass on this thing? Should i just unscrew the holders and tilt it out? Is there a trick to it?

              I think I removed the whole door frame from the game and laid it down to remove the holders, then put my hand underneath to lift the glass out.

                Where do u get new legs for a gottlieb system 1? Sounds expensive if not unobtainium.

                  Pinball resource in usa. The postage kills it. The legs are cheap but postage is expensive.

                    Looks like a really nice original game. Keep in mind they are only original once. Pretty sure you could pick up a junker that deserves your efforts if this ones pretty nice

                      I understand what you mean. The cabinet needs a fix up and someone has done a home job of the repairs already. I know some people like to keep everything original but i respectfully prefer to have it looking/playing like new. The cabinet red has faded to an orange and i want it to be red like on a pack of cards.

                          Great game that deserves to be restored to its former glory. Favourite SS game ever.

                            Im too young to have ever played this new or near new. I dont want to ruin its originality and you are right i guess it isnt in poor condition. I guess its not too late to do a cabinet swap over.
