1984 Bally Eight Ball Deluxe - SOLD

Check List When Buying A Pinball

Pinball

Eight Ball Deluxe is probably one of the best Bally games of the 1977 to 1985 era. The play field on this game is good. There are a couple of places where the black outlines will need to be redone. But there are no wear spots on the play field. The cabinet is good. The right back box is faded. The yellow is all gone and just white. Most likely that was the side that was facing a window.

Sadly, a new replacement plastic set is not available so I will not be able to replace the plastics.

This game needed a lot of stuff to get it working and looking nice.

The items that HAVE BEEN replaced:
* MPU Board
* Solenoid Board
* Lamp board (required for LEDs)
* Auxiliary lamp board (required for LEDs)
* Super brite LED kit
* Solenoid Expander Board
* Repaired sound board
* New bumper assemblies
* New bumper caps
* New drop target set
* two inlane clear plastics (the only plastic that is broken on the game I can replace)
* Three blue lane guides
* Rubber kit
* Posts
* coils
* New shooter rod and springs
* Nylon caps
* Coin door decal
* New legs, bolts, levelers, and leg protectors

The displays look good so I will not replace with new displays. But the warranty will not cover the displays. New displays cost about $260. I can add them now, or they may never need to be added. Or you can buy them and easily add them yourself in the future. Or I replace when/if needed, if ever.

*** NOTE: WARRANTY DOES NOT INCLUDE DISPLAYS UNLESS YOU BUY A NEW SET AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE.

The pictures have been taken with the glass off to get a better picture.

This game comes with a manual.

The back glass looks great and looks better with LEDs. The displays are original and look great. I am not replacing BUT I am not included them in the warranty since I would rather buy the new ones and incorporate them into the price. But I am trying to keep the price lower.

Here is the game when I first purchased it.

 

item

The back glass is nice. The displays seem to work. I could buy new ones that would run on less power and be LEDs to ensure they last a long time. If these displays are kept, they are not warranted since I am not sure of their remaining life span.

 

item

The play field and plastics are nice. The plastics are a little yellowed but will clean up (and most likely remain a little yellow).

The right back box yellow is missing and faded. I will remove the license decal.

Warranty

As of August 1, 2014, we will no longer provide a warranty with our pinballs unless you purchase a separate warranty from us. A 1 year warranty is $500 or pay as you go if you even need it. If you buy it directly from us and take it home yourself, you will be inspecting it to ensure it works. If we deliver, we will ensure that it works 100% when delivered.

Reasons You Should Let Us Deliver Your Pinball (or Another Machine)

  1. We will NOT provide a warranty for the machine since we cannot be assured that a problem did not happen when you transported the machine. (As of August 1, 2014, we will no longer provide a warranty with our pinballs unless you purchase a separate warranty from us. A 1 year warranty is $500 or pay as you go if you even need it. If you buy it directly from us and take it home yourself, you will be inspecting it to ensure it works. If we deliver, we will ensure that it works 100% when delivered.)
  2. We take responsibility for any damage that may occur during the delivery process.
  3. We professionally set up the machine, connect all the connectors, attach the legs, head, etc. and ensure that the pinball works properly. If anything is out of adjustment due to moving the machine, we can fix it in a few minutes as compared to having to come to your house later and charging you a trip fee and repair charge.
  4. If anything major is out of adjustment, we can order parts and repair. This hardly ever happens but it could and you and the machine are protected.

Delivery Options

We are currently set up for local delivery only within the Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, and North-Eastern West Virginia area. If you are interested in shipping the pinball machine, we will contact a shipper. You will pay all crating and postage costs.

If you would like us to deliver and set up within 50 miles of Purcellville, the charge is $300; within 100 miles $475. The delivery charge includes delivery to a first floor or basement level if walk-out.

We will not sell you a game/deliver the game if the only entrance to your basement is an inside the house staircase. They are too narrow. Plus we have to ensure we don't mess up carpet or wood. It just isn't worth it.

You may also come and pick up the machine from our location.
