This listing is for a Gottlieb Haunted House widebody Pinball Machine made in 1979. This machine had been in climate controlled storage for over 25 years when we started work on it earlier this year. We discovered that one of the Flipper Coils had a dead short and the Driver Board was not working. Evidently that’s why it went into storage all those years ago. Anyway we replaced the Coil (and Diode), replaced the Driver Board, and then started basic maintenance to make it the dependable classic it is today. The original Battery has been removed from the CPU Board. There was no damage no leakage - amazing! , and a remote battery holder (3 AA) has been installed in the back box. Since the System 80 originally had a rechargeable battery a Diode was added to the line to block the new batteries from an attempt to charge. The 5/12 volt filtering (big orange) Capacitor has been replaced. We added the additional ground and power wires to the interconnect cable between the CPU Board and Driver Board, and because Gottlieb System 80 machines do not have a free play setting we added a recessed Credit Button to the bottom of the machine just below the left side of the front door (it has a quick disconnect plug if you decide you prefer to collect coins for credits). We have been playing the machine for a few months now and everything functions as it should. If you are looking for a Haunted House Pinball to play, or for restoration this is the machine for you. Please check the pictures to determine actual condition, and if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment to come here and try it out please text me at 9788355327. If you are interested I encourage you to contact me at your earliest convenience. Here is a list of cosmetic issues. Back glass has a one inch scratch right in the middle of the letter “U” in Haunted. There is a picture of both front and back above. We touched it up, and put orange LEDs behind it. About half of the play field plastics need to be replaced as they are cracked or broken. The cellar play field has four quarter size areas where the paint has been chipped off by the ball dropping through trap doors onto it. One of the Drop Targets in the Attic isn’t correct (we didn’t have the right replacement). They are available and we can order one for you if you really must have the right one. There is some scratching and paint chips on the head and cabinet. That is the list of things I see. As I said it is great fun to play, and everything works as it should. It would be an excellent candidate for a complete restoration. Cat not included in sale. But you knew that. The machine is located in Boxford Massachusetts - 35 miles North of Boston. If you are within 20 miles of our location I can deliver it to you door. Getting it inside your home and setting it up is not my responsibility. If you want it delivered beyond 20 miles let me know. Maybe we can work something out. The item “Gottlieb Haunted House Pinball Machine 1979″ is in sale since Friday, August 07, 2015.
