That thing is cool. I had to watch a YouTube video to see exactly what it does. I Can't help you with the levers.... sorry
If a rough/project Pike's Peak comes up for sale I'll probably be able to make mine near perfect.
In the meantime, I have it set for "novelty" play, which means you don't start a discrete game, the balls will just continually recycle. So, even though it's not 100%, I can definitely still play it.

Now I need to find a Zeke's Peak to pair with it... (Zeke's Peak is a rebranded Ice Cold Beer machine)
Did you get your existing likes peak in Ottawa? I bought my second williams riverboat a couple of years ago and the man almost sold me a nice condition peak but some woman had claimed it first but he also had a parts Pike s peak too. It's unfortunate I don't think I have a phone number for him but I never saw it come up for sale either

I get butterflies when I see a TZ....

It's interesting to see the discussion around JJP's POTC and how people are stockpiling parts for it. Seems like it is the "next" Twilight Zone, in terms of desirability and complexity.

JJP POTC is the best game SINCE Twilight Zone :-) If it was Premium money I'd buy one. Just cann't justify the money it goes for, but I totally get it. It's an incredible game.

20-pin header replaced, mods applied to this Bally Rectifier board.
Just need to clean, apply thermal heatsink compound and re-assemble.
And ensure proper fuses/ratings are present.

Beautiful day to do this!

Not exactly the hobby, but picked up this sweet little audio shelf today. Original Sony from I don't know what year. Complete with "Its a Sony" sticker, and the SONY logo. Particle board unit, with metal trim, silver t-moulding, and glossy black corner covers. The guy even left the tempered glass warning sticker in the corner. I think it's a great little unit! Got it for super cheap as well!

I've re-purposed it for my old original PS3, and PS4 and Playstation LED lighting. Stuck a couple albums in the bottom just to complete the look! Ha ha!

I think those cabinets reflect as much a bygone era as an arcade cab does... I remember spending countless hours listening to records in the dark with my big headphones. Good times.

You captured my thoughts and sentiment exactly! Finding something like this recaptured a part of me I didn't even know I had lost. I wish all my Kijiji finds were as smooth and made me as happy as this cabinet does.
