For sale

I'm being moved into the garden room so limited on space and time with projects.

I got this shipped over from the US a few months ago as a project. I've done a bit if fiddling with it but still not managed to get it working as other stuff got in the way.

Game powers on and the monitor is working with GAME OVER screen burn. Board is visibly in good condition with no acid damage.

I tried the 5v hack on it but didn't improve so ordered new edge connectors. Not had time to fit them so will be included in the sale. I have some connectors to make the 5v hack removable when edge connectors disconnected. I'll include these too. I will include 2 spare board sets that I bought on UKVAC. They're complete but acid damaged. Hopefully one decent working board can be made. Or look at using pi posistion etc

I've wiped down the outside of the cab and artwork is in fair condition. I removed the old damaged feet and fitted cabinet sliders.

Glass bezel has small amount of flaking paint.

Needs a new light for the marquee as pin connectors corroded.

Looking for what it's cost me so far £800

Martin due here next week 🤞

I can get more photos tomorrow if needed

pole position boards have a reputation as being the most flakey arcade board ever made,however Mark(retroclinic) does a great job of fixing them,good luck with the sale

Very tempted, but I remember the anxiety of owning one 5 years ago always worried if it would boot up when I turned it on. And that was after spending £200 with retroclinic.

Watched a few repair videos and they were pretty overwhelming for my level of knowledge. I was getting different stuff on the screen when playing with the edge connector so thought it'd be best to change that and start with the basics.
If It doesn't sell, arcade shop sell the pi posistion boards for $199 and I have a pi In the loft so could go down that route instead of repair of the existing

My favourite Cab game as a "young adult" on Whitby pier... I could actually get a decent score on this. If my Man Cave were built I'd have this.

Tried to get a picture of the screen burn. I've seen this on a couple machines so guess it's pretty common 20220108_104915.jpg
