The inner tip of the right flipper button busted off. It was still kind of stuff in place inside, so I could play it, but the flipper button might fly off if you aren't secureing it.
Then a piece of the shooter rod broke off! Never expected that. SF2 has a skill shot that requires precision timing to an audio cue, so you need to be able to rocket off that plunge with an exact amount of force at a precise time. that means pulling back the plunger and letting it "snap" off of your finger. I guess the plastic was just aged, and the little snap plunge took a chunk out of it.
Luckily Steve Young has a great stock of Gottlieb System 3 parts available. (seriously, I'm scared to own a game he doesn't have a massive overstock of parts for)
|Rebuilt and ready for action!|
New button, new plunger rod, and we are back to 100%!
