I really love this thread! A guy with a new pinball (his first bingo) and him sharing it with everyone on an active forum, where everyone is happy, getting involved, and really enjoying the game and the thread _ Pretty Cool!!

 

Check out that last post: Dennis offering “to slip the guy some score cards” _ Awesome!!

This should be a fun project.
I'm a bit intimidated but if I go in order I think it will be fine.

She's a super pretty one.

What did that run you? Looks nice.


$100. It will clean up pretty well I think.

You can see where the 4 is cleaned a bit

Nice find all the way around Jeff.

I guessing it's your first Bingo.

I never have had one myself but I hear stories of guys working on these things for 3-5 years just to get them to work right.

Once you do get it finished you will have to invite your buddies over with their hard earned coin and tell them forget card night, it's time for Bingo!

I have a bingo I tinker with on ossasion. Still not working. Those things are insane. It looks like a mad scientist designed it. The complexity is second to none.

HDC -- here ya go

Ken -- yup its my first i couldnt pass this deal up.


Nice find

I would be too seeing all those stepper motors worrying my arm would fall off from cleaning. lifting 12-16 oz. are good training for that task.

I see a fan in that backbox that looks a little outgunned in there.

One good thing about it the O-rings are not a head scratcher.


Nice looking machine. That backbox looks intimidating but even if you can't get it running right it's still a great piece of eye candy.

After looking at your Head pics you are truly a brave man Jeff. :-0

I would think that besides Schematics that Bally had Owners Manuals with these things which if they did would be a must to have so you can understand the Ruleset in order to know whats working and what is not when you start testing it.

Post some pics of the inside of the cabinet when you get a chance. I'm curious to see how much stuff they have in there as well.

Awesome artwork by the way.

Hey , Ken it`s probably a ghost town.
Even if the wires were legible & had a schematic I would still have hard time following them.

Its pretty much a ghost town except up by the coin door.

Theres a motor to move the ball holder board and a motor in back to do something unknown as of yet

heres some more pics and info including manual , schematic , flyer etc

Nice score! This is one of the bingos on my short list because I went to
Cypress Gardens as a kid many times. Restoring bingos isn't all that bad.
Take your time and be methodical about it.

You came up to Dallas to buy that thing? LOL.

That's dedication. You should've taken the other two bingos that someone else was selling for 100$ together while you were here.
