  • project "jacks open"

    12 months of looking while at a mates leaning against a wall and $50 later im now the new owner.

    Has had one owner since new and was sited in the late 70's. Needs shopping out as the parts are original and rubbers and globes stuffed and cabinet needs a good paint and scrub up in spots (coindoor is the worst) plus legs will need either replacing or painting

    so far im missing 2 coils and where the balls are stored by the look of it besides that the motors ect are all squeaky clean and free moving

    playfield looks good to me and backglass im impressed with for its age


    this is my first pin so will be taking plently of time before i fire it up

    heres hoping and time to dive in and will take all free donations

            yeah the playfield is really nice needs a good clean and backglass looks almost minty. the most noticable wear is the ball trough (as expected) i might install mylar to stop it getting any worse

                yeah there is alot of work

                the artwork is damaged the coindoor is really bad but overall is actually alright for its age i reckon. Im going to scrub the sides tonite and get all the fly crap off it

                ill take a pic of the insides tonite they are really smick it was stored standing on its back so all the dust and crap had settled on the bottom and left the switches ect nice and clean

                once i get the internals going i can slowly do the cabinet which doesnt phase me in its state

                and some little fan put KISS on the headbox

                    im really stoked at it foot

                    had a go at cleaning the sides its actually paint from the original stencilling

                    should i leave it as or later repaint perhaps

                    plus ive tried heaps to find a manual or schematic so far without out any success to work out some missing coils.

                    Went to take a pic of the insides and spotted a piece of paper poking out the bottom shelf and...



                    inside this was..







                    ive got the shakes with shock and excitement at this project and its less than 24hrs in

                    those along would make my $$ back and also had a look at the backglass from behind no flaking at all minty fresh

                      fired the old girl up

                      score motor kicks over and over so reading on the net there is a switch open somewhere

                      time to start searching but atleast the old girl is alive

                      tracked it back to the reset bank so far

                          Mate that is the schematic. Remeber this is nothing like your arcade games as everything is physical. Check Marvin for hints on how to read.

                              Been slack last few weeks and got as far as flipping the playfield over to start replacing parts that have been removed

                              now ive made a heap of room in my shed i can get into the old girl once i figure out some missing brackets

                              stay tuned for noob questions
