      It Fell Off The back Of A Truck, Honest.

      Yep literally fell off the back of a truck while it was on a pinball trolley.

      Head is smashed, a bit of harness damage and even though it shows no signs of any cabinet damage, the playfield won't go in so it's out of square.

      Amazing the playfield glass and back glass that flew out when it hit side on head first, didn't break but by the looks of it, the head exploded.

      Going to need to strip the head clean and clamp it back up maintaining it's square when I rebuild it and then square the cabinet back up.

      Got a couple of days to get this fixed and returned. The operator wants it back out earning money.

      Ow Lou, I have had much much worse than this before.

      One hour in and I have all the boards out and labelled. (labelled because I don't know Gottlieb System 3 wiring backwards)

      F...en hate system 3 Gottliebs.

      He actually likes The system 3s and says they don't really break. Not real sure about that. Good when they work but when they fail they can be a pig to get running again.

      I was quite surprised he swapped a Wipe Out for this machine.

      Of the two I'd say Wipe Out the better of a bad bunch myself.

      Yuck - we had this happen years ago with a brand new NSM 100 CD jukebox on its way to be delivered to a pub west of Brisbane.

      Fell off the ute and smashed into a million pieces. It was toast!

      Interesting thing was the boss had us all wait back the following Monday and paid a truckie to spend 30 minutes with all of us teaching us how to tie knots....

      True story and to this day I'm thankful for the lesson, I still use those same knots regularly.

      I think my Target Alpha EM fell off a truck when I got it. The cabinet was not square, no Backglass, couldn't shut the coin door & inside the cab was smashed & split timber. It took a month or two to sort it all out but is great now.
