Hi Folks,

Stripping a Gottlieb (playball) for parts, did come out of a running machine that was broken down for a resto, not happening, lost the love with it when I found SS games.
Take a look at the pictures, the parts are FILTHY and will need a service before being used.

message on here with what you want and I can send you a price :)

I also have a full set of used metal parts, a cabinet with backbox, and a gottlieb playball playfield

I hate to see any game being broken - As you haven't put any photos up yet I can't tell just how bad it is but are you sure it can't be saved? Muck and grease aren't usually an issue, but damp and woodworm can be.
If the game has to go then I am interested in the cabinet (main and head, with fittings) if it has no woodworm

There isnt a manual plunger with this game, it was the first game to fire the ball from the flipper buttons from between the middle of the flippers just like someone was pitching the ball! pretty cool as its a baseball theme!

These Gottlieb EM mechs clean up beautifully, I've restored far worse looking mechs to a beautiful condition. Seems such a waste to part out a working machine just because you fell out of love with it 🙄

Win some and lose some, on the plus side,
The parts could help restore 3/4 other machines for other people.

I guess we see things differently then... I prefer to actually save machines, I wouldn't dream of parting out a working machine, especially an EM
Agreed - there are plenty of spares out there without losing a working game, and in my experience most games don't need much to get them up and running unless they have been robbed previously

I think the problem here going by the photos is the degree to which the game had already been broken down for restoration, so it would have been a job for someone to put it all back together.

I'd of happily put it all back together, oh well.... I guess this is a 'loose some' scenario.
